'36 Chev Modification: Oh, Yeah...this looks much better!

Recommended Posts

Jay Leno has a Duesenberg with headlights down low like that. When he introduced the car at Pebble Beach a few years ago, some remarks were made about it resembling an aging stripper.

Someone went to a lot of trouble to make that 36 Chevy butt ugly. Ugh!

The guy that owns or built this car doesnt need those here that would belittle his work.

There only needs to be one person that is happy with it and the rest should keep their opinions to themselves.

You all know that if this car was at a show somewhere you wouldnt walk up to the guy and tell him that he went to a lot of trouble to make it ugly.

(kinda makes us look ugly)

Does it really look any uglier than what's on the roads these days? I think not.......

Park it next to a new Juke or Soul and you may agree.................

I'll bet it handles like it's on rails with that rear spoiler. That is one of the most awkward looking cars that I have ever seen. No sense of style, just change for the sake of change. Those headlights are illegal in every state of the union, I would suspect. Loose the stupid wheels and tires, fix the front end, center up the rear wheels, adjust the rake from tail dragger to down in the front and shave off those fender flairs and you might, just might, have an OK looking street rod. 10K, no way.

What rear spoiler? Are you perhaps looking at the door frame of the building behind the car?

You can see it if you go to the sales link....

I agree, Jack. Not my piece of cake, but some one has an imagination.

In my opinion he ruined a 36 Chev. I am truly not impressed. Wayne

Is it me or does this car have a lottttaa fiberglass ?

Strange,... I wonder what that paint job will look like in a few years :eek:

For the price though a guy could have a decent start and make a few changes back to normal.

Well, excluding the cheesy interior, firewall, V8 (probably a Ford rear end), 1980s directional rims not to mention the aftermarket Auto Zone side mirrors... other than that it's a pretty sweet ride. :rolleyes:

58Mustang, you've got it exactly right with "change for the sake of change". Just because you can, or have the ability, to change something, doesn't mean your results will have any value whatsoever. I wish that guys like this would apply their "talents" to things that were less meaningful or more transient. I wouldn't be so offended by his "artistry" at all, if it were applied to wood or clay, or something similar. The concept of creating something artistic from raw materials has been with us since the time our ancestors dwelt in caves. But to have the poor taste to modify so very extensively an otherwise pleasant looking heirloom car (and they are heirlooms, you know) offends me greatly.

Jack M and First Born, we live in a country which honors the free expression of opinion. We are also on a Forum which honors the preservation of vintage and antique autos. When it comes to modifying vintage vehicles I am tolerant of individual tastes up to some point, but I reserve the right to point out and laugh at the preposterous!

Just because I can, should I ?

You have said it like it is and I totally agree with your position. This car has been recreated to the preposterous stage and is laughable.

I'll bet that the owner hopes that there will be at least 2 who like it. He (the seller) and the possible buyer.
