Maybe next year I'll be able to do a big tour in the 'burb. It's only about 1600 km from Edmonton, to your neck of the woods.

Just promise not to laugh, my 'burb won't measure up (well, it will in length, just not in mods ), but I work on it when I can. Motor swap coming soon.

Mike,
Thanks buddy... I almost choked when I saw this. Absolutely amazing... Do you remember the photochop I did of one a while ago... Yours is pretty darn close!

Can't wait to see it done.

I'm going with either the same wheel/tire combo as Gringoloco's Blazer (except chrome), or that but 22x9 in the rear. Still trying to decide...

More on the wheels: Here's a quick mspaint job stretching the current wheels to 20/22 and a little drop. I think we may have a verdict

Re: Joined the Short Wheelbase Club *69 Tahoe Project*

I have to say I like the daisy wheels, but the coy's should look good too. Here's a crappy MSpaint chop to make a quasi-Nomad from your now shorty burb...

This is by no means a Frizzle needs to do this to his, just a quick MS doodle to see what my mind was thinking of when I thought of a 69 Nomad. To make the porportions work better for a traditional 2dr nomad I had to stretch the front door, add the slanted b-pillar, eliminate the 3rd door and add the chrome window divider bar for the quarter glass.

Hijack over...

Re: Joined the Short Wheelbase Club *69 Tahoe Project*

I like the chrome rims better (torque thrusts maybe?) to match the 69-70 chrome grille and bumpers....

FF, I'm amazed at your creation! I would love to see it in person sometime.

Btw, I saw this several years ago on this board and kept a copy. I don't have a clue who it belongs to though.

'preciate it my brothas! I agree about the chrome wheels. I want the chrome versions of Gringoloco's (Coy C5).

Brad, that's a photochop of mine! Here's the original:

Amazing work. I can't believe I missed this thread before. You need to drive it up to Seattle for some of the shows - or chop Mark's so he can drive it by my office!
