I remember when Gary built this a few years ago for a friend of his and always liked this one from him.
In keeping with this months tribute to him I'll let him tell you about this build in his own words. The post below is the initial post for the build but tells the most about it.
I started on a replica build of a 57 Chevy that was built by Tim Field( my cousin) and his Father, back in the mid to late 70s. The engine was a 327 SB that was built for street racing along with the muncie 4spd. The car was painted a med Met. Blue with pearl white Ghost flames on the hood. The outside and all the running gear was finished on the car. The interior was being redone when Tim had to sell it. Soooo...with all that in mind...I'm going to build the interior as if Tim and I would've done it together. In fact... WE are doing it together....I'm on the phone with him quite a lot as I build the inside. I've found pretty much all the items that I need( Reference pics also) to get this project under way.
Other pictures of the build:
Something that alot of folks didn't know that he did on the side was being a drummer in a band. I don't know what all kinds of music that the band did play but he did tell me that he really enjoyed playing Marty Robbins songs with his band.

Another great build from Gary. He was actually a professional drummer for several years and cut a few albums with bands. I can’t remember for the life of me what bands he said. There were a couple main ones he played with. The man had plenty of interesting stories to share.
