The '55 Cameo was completed for the Atlanta show (NNL South), but didn't find time to take pics. until yesterday. Some of you guys might remember it in progress, but in the event you don't I've included the some in progress pics. too.

Hope you guys enjoy!

I believe the front clip is from a '65 Vette, but can't remember, the rest of the chassis is all scratchbuilt:

Because this was a re-build I already had a mill for it. This is the old mill (don't know if you guys rememer this):

Thanks, Daniel! Although most people like my VW better, the Cameo is my favorite.

Some great engineering you did with the doors! That's a tough deal with those ooooohh sooooo thin doglegs for the wraparound windshield! Eek.gif

Excellent job! Big-Thumbs-Up.gif

I loved seeing it in person the past two years at NNL South. Dirk brought it to NNL05 in progress an it was great seeing it in progress.

Dirk, you've already heard what I think. I think it looks awesome, in my opinion its my favorite. Although the VW has more machine work, which is undoubtedly awesome, I love the stance and build of this one.

Very cool. Clean and smooth. The motor is as clean as the truck, too. No geegaws or unnecessary parts. Excellent build, Dirk.
