Wow 26! After that many you must see them in your sleep. You ought to write a book and make some coin off that knowledge.

Haha, the only problem with you posting your rides is that everyone drools over your awesome builds and the burbs and panels don't get the love they so wish they had lol.

Re: 67-72 Burbs and Panels 2wheel drive only

Lets see if this new hosting site works....Well, bigger than I wanted but it works.

Our '72 that we have had for 25 years. It is in the shop right now getting a new full interior for the first time ever.
Cant wait to get it back.

Re: 67-72 Burbs and Panels 2wheel drive only

That is a very sharp looking burb. Not over the top ... just right!

Curious what drop and tire wheel size you are running.

I sideswiped a car in Des Moines, IA. No injuries in either vehicle but decent amount of damage to both vehicles. I have the door replaced on the Panel Truck and welded the patch panel on the quarter Friday. Hopefully I will have it ready to prime and block sand tomorrow.

I'm glad to hear it's just bent metal. It still sucks though, I really like your panel.

Played with many muscle cars, now I want something with style, speed, and room for junk. Recently picked this one up....planning on going back with some variant of the original medium poly blue with a pro touring stance. Assuming I can find quality parts to get this build started.

Re: 67-72 Burbs and Panels 2wheel drive only

It's got cancer around the rear wheel wells. I'm trying to find quality sheet metal for it. Anybody have good contact info for gmcpaul? I sent an email to 3 different emails on his website over a week ago and still nothing. My pockets aren't flame proof...not sure how long I can hold out...lol.

Re: 67-72 Burbs and Panels 2wheel drive only

You might try Wes at Classic Heartbeat for the burb panels. He has a more than stellar rep here on the board. Here is a link to his web page, but I would just give him a call. He really knows these trucks and is building a very cool panel right now.

Thanks for the heads up. Wes was great to deal with and very knowledgeable. I just bought enough sheet metal from him to hopefully redo all the problem areas.

That is sweet. Painted bumpers on 503 green, one of the best combos ever!
