These are some week old pics of progress on my Johan 1961 Olds F-85 Wagon. It has several subtle body mods and considerable changes and smoothing to the bumpers. The colors are PPG Silver Mica Mist and Dark Charcoal Metallic (both Toyota truck colors) with PPG clear. The interior is Krylon Salmon. The wheels are Pegasus. I will try to have more current pics in a day or two, I just really wanted to post something tonight since I just got registered here today. Hope to chat with some of you guys in the near future! Hope ya like my lil Olds.

Pretty much everything I do except factory stockers has that low rake. My 1:1 64 Nova SS even is set up on 15x4 and 17x7 Torq Thrust II's and very low. I think stance is everything. I have found that even a progress shot of an unfinished piece will get attention if it simply sits right and has the correct tire and wheel combo. Funny how that works in real life when a car sounds meaner than it looks!

Nice wagon. The colors really go with the car. Stance is dead on too.
