Well, I have decided to put this car as priority, My aim is to get it ready to drive to the first European Hot Rod & Custom show in Chimay, Belgium next June. I also changed the style that i'm doing the car, I'm now going for the late 40's/early 50's Bonneville salt flat style, kind of like the image below which was a very bad atempt at photoshopping by myself but hopefully you get the idea... The colour will be the original light(Kingston) grey with a blood red lower front.

dude that'll be awesome! I still want that car hahaha. What drivetrain you going for? I don't know if you have the book 'Hot Rod - the photography of peter vincent' but there's a flamed 40 chevy business coupe actually at bonneville (albeit modern day) on page 240 that looks kool. Whats the score with the citroen now?

You had your chance Laughing

Not sure on drivetrain, definitely a manual box though, i quite like the idea of a mildly hopped up 235 six but they aren't so easy to come by now, kind of just looking around to see what comes up...

I wanted to get the Citroen on the road for the summer but i just haven't had any spare time this year so far, it only needs a day or two spending on it... I took a while figuring out which to do first and well i got the 40 first so it's only fair i do it first or sell it as it is.

I'll have to check out that book
