  1. Damn, I didn't even notice that! Like I said before, I am new to this game. That 2nd pic was one I was sent during the buying process. I was told it was a very old pic, so going from that, the pics are atleast 10 years apart, hence the different sets of tires, different color wheels, and now different rear end. Now another job has come up! And that's restoring the rear end back to original! Thank you pointing this out, you have a great eye. 👏🏻
  2. Thanks! 👍🏻 The exhuast is just a single-exit There's just one muffler is placed in the middle, i believe it was custom-made. From there its just a straight pipe that routes through and exits at the back.
  3. Nice! I'm up over in Jacksonville. And yeah the paint really does grow on you 😁 Classic Cragers are nice too! I think they'd look good with white walls. And thanks! Thats true, it is old skool and would stand out in a car show. And yeah theres plenty of choices regarding the powerplant, im yet to fully decide what i want. Yes it was. And thank you! 😁
  4. Hello everyone. I am excited to be a part of the forum and share my project with you as it goes along as well as read about all of your own. My name is Joel and I manage an auto repair shop in Florida. My wife and I just recently bought our first classic car project to build together as I am turning 50 early next year. We currently live in Florida and have attended a lot of car shows and have been dying to bring one of our own. After months of searching we finally decided on this: 1952 Pontiac Chieftain 2 door sedan Black w/ Flame job Previous owner said it is on its 3rd engine, the stock 4.4 liter straight 8. I am considering doing a turbo'd GM 4.8 V8 swap along with a 700R4 trans. Or maybe going with its larger 6.0 liter cousin. The paintjob is nice but not what we initially had in mind so later on it might get changed, maybe reverting back to just plain black but I don't know, it could grow on me. What are your guys opinion? The wheels are okay but will be changed for something more vintage style with chrome hubcaps and some nice white walls. But for now the first job I have in mind is to do a disc brake conversion and some sort of power brake upgrade immediately. During the same time period I am also going to rebuild the king pins, and replace all the control arm and leaf spring bushings and inspect the rest and do the alignment. Then sometime next year I will do a power steering conversion. Here are a couple of pictures (girl is my wife's daughter)
