The execution on it is really nice. I don't know what it looks like with the top up but down it looks like a fun ride. The rounded roof if they left it alone may not fit in so well with all the other sharp flay lines with the rest of the body. A lot of custom work and talent there for sure.

Steve Barton had an incredible collection of spectacular cars, but an aqua blur SSR was his driver. The El Camino SSR was a special occasion ride. It was very well done, but I always thought that considering how much money went into the build that the grille should have been a shortened billet version of the stock Chevy grille, instead of the flat mesh that really doesn't suit the car. The wheels are terrible. They just picked a 6 spoke wheel because of the 6 bolt SSR hubs, rather than go the extra mile and have some wheels custom built that would suit it better.

One of his latest projects was a Caddy wagon that was 15 years in the making. His goal was to get it to the 2019 Ridler award show, but unfortunately, he died before the car got there. His brother and others got the car finished, got it to the Ridler show, made the Great Eight, and won the Ridler Award.

Spectacular build, and many articles written about it. This is one of them.
