So busy this week we went with a true “Photo Blog” post. Which is to say, “just photos.” Here’s what we’ve been up to!

Ever since the birth of the muscle car (1949 if you hold to the legacy of the Oldsmobile Rocket 88) people who love powerful automobiles have been turning out new creations and striving for great heights of perfection where it comes to putting four wheels on the road with the most oomph possible behind them.
Chris and Carrie Fesler are no exception to the rule. Driven by a love of custom cars, they began in the late 1990s, shooting and writing magazine articles as promotional pieces for manufacturers in the automotive industry. Eventually, they began to design these vehicles, working closely with companies to build, show and advertise custom cars and trucks designed to showcase a particular company’s products.
It’s been an interesting week at Fesler. We’ve seen huge progress on the 1955 Bel Air, moved forward on other projects and got a 1969 C-10 in the shop for new interior and a few other upgrades.
Let’s start with the Bel Air. This week was focused on getting the rear end ready for rear quarter panels and rear bumper – work that will most likely continue on into next week. Rust repair had been done and new pieces are going in to replace what had to be cut out.
