Not new but new project!

Well I have been hanging around here off and on and I started out with a 1968 Impala Custom and did some work to that and then I literally "got an offer I couldn't refuse" lol.

So now I am back with my dream car that I had been after for almost 15 years it's a 1959 Biscayne with an inline 6 and 3 on the tree floors are pretty solid just a little bit of patchwork needed, the body is really straight for now I am just going to leave the body the way it is and work on the mechanics of it and cosmetics as well it will be getting the pro-touring treatment.









Picked this up today5/29/2016!!! ($2K) TALK ABOUT BEING IN THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME!!!!!!

It does look good.

Looks like you've got 1-Piece CA Bumpers too.

Are you in California? You've got both black plates. You can still use those plates. Hopefully, your pink slip has that plate number on it. If you have the title or old registration with that plate number on it, use can them without going the YOM route. Good Luck.

OK I'll bite. Admitting that I'm as old as dirt, I have to guess that the Goth part refers to gothic a fashion statement in black. haven't a clue as to what the MCT stands for in GOTHMCT.

Ah a new Batmobile! Carry on sir; I will go a dust the bat cave.


You are aware that the Batmobile of Tim Burton's Batman was actually a 1985 Impala under the all of the fiberglass. Well at least the fire wall, floor boards, and the frame and power train (a Chevy 350). The rest of the boxy Impala kind of fell off as it didn't match Tim Burton's vision of a jet powered tank that climbs walls.

Sounds good! Make sure you keep paper work to tie the original plates to the VIN.
