    Wicked new from cape cod mass

     



    Hello, my name is Nathan I went to a technical high school where o took regular auto collision and worked at a series of different insurance shops and was fortunate enough to have found a mentor to show and teach me custom fabrication. From learning with him we've since built two cars together going on a third. Looking forward to posting pictures and hearing feedback.

    Welcome Nathan to the family, I hope you enjoy your time and the guys and gals feedback you receive from them. I do admire your work already from the photo's you have posted already so tell us more about the custom ragtop and what you have planned for it ?
    I maybe a little crazy but it stops me going insane.

    The ragtop is pretty unique and has been a wicked fun build. It started out as a stock 52 Buick Riviera and the frame was actually sectioned and the front clip of the frame is from a 66 riviera with a 454 totally rebuilt wildcat motor. The convertible top was chopped 3 inches and the quarters widened 3 inches on both sides, as well as the trunk being sectioned 5 and a half inches. The rear wheel wells are going to be replaced with 57 nomad wheel wells which will be married into the quarters to appear as if they were made that way from the factory. The front fenders are just going to be radiussed so that the wheel gap is cleaner all the way around. The car also sits on 32 way adjustable coil overs and 4 link suspension, as well as 4 wheel drilled and slotted disk breaks.

    Welcome aboard, nice to see younger people into this sort of thing. And with the range of things done to the Porsche in your other thread you're not in a rut.

    As for this one the Packard tail lights and '59/60 Chev dash would be considered normal period touches, the cowl induction scoop..............not so much. But that's what puts the custom in custom................expression of an individual's taste(s).

    It's much easier to promise someone a "free" ride on the wagon than to urge them to pull it.

    Luck occurs when preparation and opportunity converge.

    The cowl induction hood I thought would be cool because like you said it definitely isn't done often if at all, however it is functional for the 454 wild cat under the hood, so if the appearance may not catch the eye of some, hopefully the performance will lol. Definitely appreciate your feed back, the next project will be a 57 nomad with who knows what custom touches quite yet. I will start a thread for that next week probably. I am certainly enjoying everyone's replies. Thank you.

    Without a doubt man, I was incredibly lucky to find someone outside of my family that was willing to teach me the ropes before diving into something and each day I learn something new. Have to bring my daughter around the cars too, Gotta start them young lol. Picture of her with the 454 wild cat

    Haha without a doubt, all the Chevy swaps out there lol. Totally rebuilt too and bored 30 over, aluminum heads, steel valves, mild street cam, and the two 650 carbs on top.. Dying to see how she goes. I guess I should make a build thread for the Buick as well lol, thanks for the reply!
