    Thought you guys would get a kick out of this. Saw it posted over on another forum. Guy is from MD I guess.......had the 4 door sitting around rotting away so figured what the heck. Too bad it's a Meyer, but unique to say the least! :nod:

    That is unique. That might be kind of fun. Thanks for the post.

    i think its looks good
    looks like they put some time in and did it right instead of some of the hack jobs that
    are out there

    Looks like he bolted up the body to a Chevy truck frame. Pretty slick and he ain't salting so what the heck. If you have the skills may as well use em to show off a bit.

    I'd plow with it.

    the 4 door models aren't all that desirable. i think he put it to good use. looks pretty cool towing around the 2 door.

    Why would somebody ruin a good car like that? :dizzy:

    Very cool. Good advertising there! I'll have to show the father in law these pics. Seeing as he's got a fully restored 55 chevy in the garage. And a 56 chevy in the backyard we could have a new project.

    that kinda makes me sick... not quite as bad as the vette some chicks dad from highschool ruined by lifting it. took what would have been a beautiful car and turned it into a pathetic and deperate cry for attention.

    Ya I don't think it's that bad. It's not like a restored 4 door 57 is all that cool anyway. I love shoeboxes and always have, and love a lot of 4 door cars, but the 4 door 57 isn't one of them. I think what he did sure beats it rotting away in the field. At least he saved it and is having fun with it IMHO, and its especially cool that it's a twin to his drag car. Looks like he did a nice job.

    A red plow would look mulch better on it.

    As mulch as I hate to admit it the yellow plow looks mulch better. There's not mulch better then color coordinated plow/vehicle and Meyer would be the right plow for the time frame.

    You got me on the time frame aspect, However, I would agree if the yellows matched....but they clash. It doesn't work. There is too mulch of a difference between the two yellows. He cheesed out not custom painting the plow.

    Boss red would would compliment the ride IMHO.

    OMG:eek: you are so right. I went back and looked. nasty color match :cry: looks orange. It needs a trip to the paint shop for sure. Maybe a trip edge to limit the wear and tear on the transmission.:rolleyes:
