    Our last project car was a 1959 Chevy Impala (the one with big fins); cream white with red leather.

    They were characterized more as "cats eyes."

    You might be thinking of the '60.

    Hand sanding all sides of those fins was a b*tch!

    Awesome car.

    I've been watching "PowerNation" on Youtube, which is a collection of old Cable TV Shows, some about repairing and upgrading old cars like that

    They also have an episode or two where they get a big block from the junk yard and fit it out for powaaaaah.
    I'm sure its going to be wicked fun, whatever you choose to do.

    PowerNation is OK, but check out Hagerty and Jay Leno's Garage. They all do Awesome work (Hagerty's Camera work is amazing). If you are looking for pure craftsmanship PR0N look for Clickspring... Horological Rockstar.
