I'm working on something VERY special!

By Crazyfast79TA

This is Brian Sjodeen's 1950 Olds. It was voted MSRA's Custom of the year 2011. It has power EVERYTHING! Power lift on the hood. Power lift on the trunk. Doors are power remote open. Even the glove box is power lift open and close! He wasn't happy with the air conditioning. It is so under-rated for a car this size. So we are putting in a larger upgraded unit. The paint and under coats were bubbled up on the firewall, too. These repairs required us to pull the front clip off the car and pull the engine. Everything is custom made on this car. Truly one-of-a-kind! Super-extra care had to be taken when removing each piece. There could be no chips or scratches at all! Believe me this is a tedious job every step of the way! Everything that comes off is labeled and bagged. Each special step is noted and recorded with sketches or photos. Everything is covered with towels and plastic to prevent dust and contamination. This is one special project for us. We are "Northern Performance"!

This car was bought this way by the current owner (Brian) but he only trusted Brad and his crew (me) at Northern Performance to do these changes. This is a very special car, indeed! You can't see them in the photo, but there is pearl ghost flames on the car. The bottom side is just as customized as the rest of the car. By the way, it's got an air-bag suspension.

Working on something this highly customized, has to be a real nail biter all the way.

Nice, No pressure,right? I'm sure it will all go well. That will be one that when you successfully complete it, you guys can promote your shop.

That Olds is more than a car - it's a work of art!
(I assume this is just a taste of how your T/A and Nova are going to turn out?)
