Default Section and Chop

1956 Cadillac Eldorado owned and restyled by Hence F*****n of M****n, Sweden.
The body on the Cadillac has been sectioned 2 inches, and the original roof has been replaced with a chopped 1953 Kaiser roof.

Me too.
I have always liked the Kaiser roof's with the "Widows peak" on them. Not sure how I feel about this combination though. But hey. It's creative.

Default Maximum impact...

With a roof-line/windshield, not commonly seen?

I like his choice.

My oncologist has a Kaiser Frazier he drives to work 3 days a week, one sweet looking car. Love the windshields on those.

A 2-inch section on a boat that big is going to go unnoticed by most. That is a lot of work for no recognition. Kind of like a lot of day jobs for the most of us.

As for the roof and windshield, you won't likely see another.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

That's it exactly. If you can pull off a section that "most" are unaware of, but makes the car look so much more appealing, then it has not been a lot of work for no recognition.

Yep - people think it's really cool, but can't put their finger on why! Sectioning a boat like that makes it look ten foot longer.
