Default Chop, drop, and roll

Just wanted to share this PT I found while looking for new wheels...



"Took it to my friends shop West Coast Auto body and had them do the suicide rear doors, chop the top 2 inches and lower my car 2 inches in front and 4 in the rear. I then took it to my buddy at Daves Hot Wheels where they hooked my up with these 20 inch rims and tires."

At first I thought the pic was distorted, until I read the description - I'm don't know that I like it, but I keep looking at it because it's kind of fascinating how losing those few inches evoke some of today's crossovers.

Cool Re: Chop, drop, and roll

Interesting!
I don't like the size of the wheels...

The chop isn't enough, the wheels look goofy.

A lot of money to spend on a gen2, what a shame

Wheels don't work for me.

The chop seems to be done well, but almost all chops do from a distance.

A subtle chop. Almost didn't see it. Suicide doors would be nifty for ingress/egress and for shows.

The wheels? Not for me, thanks. Out of proportion.

Does a certain Chrysler prototype come to mind?

Wow, I actually agree with you. I think I need a shower now.Lol. I guess I like the chop best. But I wouldn't know if not told. But given the headroom thing probably all that you would want to live with.

When PT met Magnum? The proportions are getting there. That would make a handsome woody, I think.

Agree with most of you on the wheels. From the thumbnail in image search, I first thought "PT donk!"
