how do you drive it anywhere like that?

It IS a beautiful work of art though

Ya I was looking close at the pics and the oil pan is sitting on the ground. There is a link to a write up about the car in there somewhere and it says that the car has airbags. He can set it down anywhere he wants. I would like to see a pic of it at its ride height.

As far as I'm concerned, he ruined a good car.
My son had a Ford Ranger that had airbags on it I rode in it 160 miles one day and told him I would never step foot in that truck again. You hit a bump in the road and jar your teeth out.
I've road farm hay wagons that ride better then that!!!

My son has his 63 Chev on air bags and can sit that on its belly but for every day driving (it is his daily driver) he raises it about 6 inches. The ride is excellent with no jarring but he does raise it when going over spedd bumps and the like to protect the exhaust etc.

Air bags are not common over here and they do raise a lot of eyebrows when adjusted. I guess it is just part of the whole "lowrider" scene, each to their own!

That is a gorgeous bird though, I like the work except for that radio as well. It looks clumsy (radio).

Thumbs up

I really like the '59 as well, not '58 as mentioned.
Having said that, the hydraulics do absolutely nix for me.
I guess that's what makes us all unique.
