Wow.... Amazing transformation. Just amazing... What a beautiful car now.


I agree and to me, the most significant single improvement to me over the stock Chrysler is the DeSoto front.

My personal favorite modification is the Jeep hood as a scoop. The best compliment it gets is that most people aren't even aware it's been customized.

This was a lot of work for me and my dad, so I'm pretty proud of how it turned out.

That's a pretty cool modification. I didn't notice it was not original. Blends in perfectly.

Could be good competition but that color combo is a NO, NO!

That's a pretty cool car! I'm probably biased, but I think I'll keep mine

You had a real truck pulling that beast home in the 1st pic. Nothing like a International 7.3 PSD. So your wagon is gone too???

Yep, I sold it to a friend of mine that wants to build a wild custom out of it. Maybe he'll join here?

Pretty cool deal, the Chrysler has been picked up for a feature in a German magazine! Somehow they are going to run a 10-page article. I'm not sure what they'll say about it with that much space, LOL.

I'm only sharing this here, so keep it under your hat, thank you

Adding a photo from the shoot that surely won't make the cut...

Wow, getting a lot of exposure! Congratulations. I'm surprised the magazine is in English.
