Right after I finished the 61 Impala, I started with this 58 Impala. I was inspired from Impala in Lifestyle Car Club, named Moonflower. I didnt do replica, it was just inspired from that car.

It also won 2nd place at the Estonian building contest and its displayed at hobby store among with other winners.

Also made a video slideshow from it

I'm not much into lowriders, but I'm really into '58 Chevy's and that one is mighty cool! LOVE the color and graphics! B)

Not a lowrider person, but I love the paint scheme on this one.

I'm blown away at your paint jobs. If that car was only good enough to get a 2nd place, I'd hate to see what took 1st place! B)

Most impressive!

Like many others on this board, I'm not a low rider fan, but I have to admit, with this car's body style and your skills, it just works!

The ingraving on the x-frame is a nice touch, really brings back the good ol days of "lowrider" magazine......before all the adds and ######. Reminds me of the (real) cars you would see that were honest,street driven "show cars", not over the top "show queens"..very nice. :)

Thanks a lot!

As said many times before, lovely build as always siim :) looking forward for more builds in 2011 :D

2011 will be the worst year for me. the 56 Del Ray was pretty much the last big project. Its my last year in high school and exam season is soon to be start, + in spring I need to move to another city to another school. So I guess my modeling will be complicated, or maybe even stopped.

This inspires me to do a low rider. I have a 61 Chevy that would work well. Nice work on yours and congrats on the second place. ;)
