BTW: Foose does some really stellar stuff! It's just that they have only 1 week to "Overhaul" a car...

That's when you know you got a GOOD thread...

When it gets LOCKED!!!

Thanks Jughead, it's my new motto.

Hey Norm, glad to see you're not in the bighouse yet.

Megladon watch out I don't think you are allowed to show Texas inspection stickers on this site.

One thing I have noticed about foose, is he never puts big wheels
on his show, always tall and narrow , I'de like to see them do a
PRO TOUR type ride with 11's or 12's out back
all tucked in

loved Foose's attitude on that . . .

would love to ask about that top sticker, but I'm sure they're not available anymore . ..once the lawyers descended like a pack of rabid weasels . . .

What a beautiful 1970; a great example of customization.

I agree with that philospohy... NCRS cars are for museums, not for driving and enjoyment, like Harley and Zora envisoned...

Foose is a true artist with motor oil running through his veins, what you see on tv is because of tv execs and their misguided assumption that everyone wants to see "bling" on every car. Don't blame Chip.

i think that's the car chip and titus had at SEMA a coupla yrs back. if so, it was an incredible car. i had a great chance to talk with them while they were there at SEMA and both of them were very cool and down to earth guys. they even stopped the detailing of the car so i could get a picture with them. it was a great moment for me and showed how great the were. i was glad they were decent guys since nowadays many of the famous and/or hollyweird types make me wanna barf.
