So after 4 years and total rebuild, here it is. Former stock C10 Chev.
Running a Lexus V8 with twin turbos and twin superchargers.

Airbagged, chopped, hand rolled guards, body etc.

All beaten copper and brass throughout.

Finally got to drive it, sounds nuts.

The last shot is what it looked like before.

Very well done!  I can tell the craftsmanship is top notch and the wood accents are a unique touch.  I imagine that thing is insanely fast with the twin turbos and chargers.  How fast and how much horsepower?

I am sure it took a lot of hard work and craftsmanship, which I would not be able to do. However, that is an ugly looking car.

Glad you can all see the work that has gone into it and the craftsmanship with the wood and copper.

Here are some closeups.

It looks great, but there's one problem. The steering column seems to have been placed in the opposite side during the assembly process.

Glad to see you kept the Iron Cross logo.  Nothing associated with the German Army could possibly be bad.
