    Reminds me of my favorite custom Chrysler, Cliff Inman's chopped '57.

    Shifter seems out of place with the rest of the car.

    That car is epic. I love those cars in a dark color. You get such a contrast with the glass. That pic from the rear made me realize I have never been inside one of those cars.

    On the chop top car I wonder if they cut down the glass or sunk it in the cowl.

    I know they used a '58 Dodge windshield and I believe they laid it back. Google Clif Inman's Chrysler and a ton of stuff comes up on the car including its restoration.

    It Looks even better than the chopped one IMHO, not much of the original proportions that could be improved.

    Saw this pic on the book of faces today. It just does everything right.
