    '12 Tiguan, '30 Chevy

    Default My god. What have I done.

    Well, this happened.

    20170218_142844 by Chad Truss, on Flickr

    It is a 1930 Chevy Coupe.

    This project will take a while, so this thread won't move too fast. I'll be building a frame from scratch, set it up for a 4 link rear suspension, and a strait axle front suspension.

    Right now I am thinking skinny wide whitewall tires and Chevy Artillery wheels, bit this could change.

    Engine is up in the air too. I do know that I will not do an LS, I will not do a diesel, and I might not even do a small block Chevy. I kinda want to do something different.

    Anyways, there we go.

    I double checked and set them to public even if they already were.

    Why not put the 6 cyl from your '61 in it?

    I thought about that, but I'm going to leave the 61 alone. That car is just going to get disc brakes and maybe dual carbs and a nice exhaust, and that's about it.

    should be a sweet little hot rod.

    if it doesn't end up with a tunnel ram or supercharger and zoomies I will be disappoint.

    You will be partially disappoint then. I may come to my senses, but right now I am thinking about a very unconventional powerplant. Like something modern, maybe even turbocharged.

    No. I said unconventional. Everyone is doing diesel and LS swaps.
