    I like them lowered a bit with a slight rake.

    No. Maybe one day someone will want me to do something like that.
    I used to be 'with it'. Then they changed what 'it' was. Now what I'm 'with' isn't 'it', and what's 'it' seems weird and scary to me.......

    I think the 55 is the best of the Tri5 Chevy's. The 57 is everyone's hot rod wet dream, but the 55 looks better IMO

    From my experience (I've done a nut&bolt resto and a "get it running. ASAP resto), get it running, burn the tires off of it and then figure out how you want to use the car.

    I also vote for a slight rake with big rear tires. Although, gasser 55s look sick.

    Perfect. You do all the prep so all I have to do is tape and spray. And leave a signed blank check.

    I'm with you. To me the 55s look the toughest, but I'm not gonna lie, I'd happily take anyone of them for the right price.

    Also agree on 55 being the best. I too would take any of the three. One of the most beautiful model vehicles ever made.
