Looks pretty good. I have never been a fan at all of larger diameter wheels on vintage muscle. They just don't look right, but these are not too bad. I would prefer a smaller wheel and more tire though.

The backgrounds are kind of distracting in the photos too.

I get what you are saying about the larger diameter wheels, but I was after a different look....lower to the ground.

How is this background? I used a bit of PS to throw more lawn in and less neighbors big house....

That looks good. I like to kneel down when I take shots like this. Everybody always stands, get different angles.

Herb I love the car and the pictorial series. The wheels look fine to me. You know the old saying "to each his own" if that's the look you are after so be it.

I either need to stand or sit on the ground or lay on the ground.....I have new knees that really dont like to knell any more.....keep your original equipment as long as you can.....my left knee had the tibia bone worn down 3/16", it was time for a replacement

other problem with knelling here, I would have had a lot more of the neighbors big house behind the car in the photo....I had some lower to the ground, but that grass knoll they have there isnt tall enough.......

Very nice job on the 60! If you have any additional shots of the engine and interior, I would really appreciate seeing them. Thanks.

To make the 35mm frames, took Microsoft Excel and made the grid with the spreadsheet and then saved as PDF and then opened in PS to bring the photos in....

I also published a book for myself on the build of the car. I used Blurb and recently they offered eBooks for iPads as well. I went ahead and produced the eBook and did not mark it up, so if you have an iPad, you can download for free at this link

http://store.blurb.com/ebooks/331964-red-hot

You have to "buy" the book, but it doesn't cost anything. Add it to your cart and then follow the directions for the download. It is about 240 pages, actual book is coffee table size.

Thanks so much! I had a hunch there was a lot more to this than what was shown in the first photos and you didn't disappoint. I tried downloading your book via my iPad but for some reason I was unable to open it. Did you do the build entirely yourself or with others?
It's very, very nice.

I did everything but the bodywork, paint and rebuild of the motor. First time i had ever done anything like that.

After I did it, I said no more....but 2 months later I found a 63 split window coupe and have started going at it all over again! that has a LS7 with 6 speed, SRIII motorsports chassis, that car is already at 2/3 the cost of the 60 and I am a long ways short of 50% done....that one is going slower......because of work.

to open the ebook, you need to have the Apple ibook reader in your ipad and open with that reader, otherwise you cant get it open. the ibook reader is part of the downloads when you upgrade to IOS6, when asked where you want to open it with, you must point to the ibook reader. it will take several moments and then open in the reader.
