    I too love the “block of soap” styling of late 30s early 40s. The 812 Cord introduced it and the Sixty Special and​ Continental epitomised that design ethos.

    Came across this nice photo of an Australian Sloper mild Custom.
    Could not resist doing a quick Photoshopped version of it.

    Wish I knew someone who has one of these very cool cars Tony. Maybe we both need a few working bees.

    Very nice Rik. These are pretty chopped looking already. Tough one to get right i think.

    1956 Chevy BelAir 4 door hardtop mild custom before and after. I call it “Bel Canto.”

    Tinwolf, your version of the Lincoln looks like a big cat getting ready to pounce on its prey – very nice!

    I love the look of that side trim on the ’56 Dave… And that roofline is so nice on those four doors. Inspiring.

    Thanks, Rik. I love that roofline, too. They used to sell cheap because they were 4 doors, but not anymore.

    I actually did a chopped version, but threw it away as it spoiled the balance of the car. Sometimes Detroit got it right!

    I dig those Australian slopers, but the roof seems to bend from the B pillar back, making the B pillar look like a tent pole pushing the roof skin up. I wonder how hard it would be to chop one in real life and remedy that situation? I think they cool get away without a chop…nice illustration, Rik

    I have to agree with you on the sloper Rob… And I already reshape the drip rail over the B-Pillar slightly on that one.

    I think shaving the drip rail and rounding the door top corner will already improve the chop a lot, and possibly reshaped the rear quarter window a bit more…

    Perhaps another time. Still limited in my Photoshop use at the moment.
