I'm finishing putting the bags on my '50 and start the audio. Sound deadening the whole car, looking for ideas on what to do in the trunk. Anyone seen any cool builds that will look good in a classic? I'll be using........

(2) MB Quart DVC tens
(2) AudioControl EQT's
(2) Mcintosh 4 channel amps
(1) AudioControl 4XS
various blocks and caps

Trunk space... and I highly stress this....... is pretty much unlimited. I have room for all this with a lot of jazz and fluff in the middle and still have left over room.

I would like to hide most of it and reveal on false panels, but that's not always realistic. I really haven't seen many old school builds into classics so if anyone has any idea LMK.

I'm old school and stubborn guys. I can make tens do things that they are not supposed to do. :) We were building transmission line boxes in 1993 with buddies at a shop that eventually became one of the 4 that I owned. I'm telling you that so you don't think I'm totally shooting you down, just trust me I have a couple decades of practice and I can make some tens hump :)

It's a 1950 Pontiac Silver Streak Streamliner Deluxe Eight. Straight 8, three on the tree. 90% original parts, but lot's of shaving and welding and frenching. Just got started on the bags and almost done. :) Here's some more pics:

Thank you, and to everyone else also. :) It's a pretty cool little ride. I've been trying to do this and my IS300 at the same time and one of the two is going to drive me to the poor house.

I can only go back so far....... LOL. The original radio is 6 volt and had tubes in it.

I pulled the generator and did a 1 wire GM alt conversion.

Dr. Krankenstein would fit well.. or some older Incriminator subs.
