Default Pic Request: 59 Cadillac Lights

These tail lights are bad ass and are used quite often on all kinds of cars & trucks. Some are very well done and some aren't, but still cool cause it's a 59 Cadillac light! They make repop lenses in red, orange and clear so possibilities are infinite!

Let's see some pics of either well use or poor use, of your own or others you've seen.

I will start it off with mine, I cut the lense and used only the tip for a very subtle change. You probably wouldnt even realize its done if you don't own a 62 or just know the 62 well.

Here's some '59 Caddy taillights you've never seen...hand blown glass from www. Dichrome.com...and they can even custom build a set for the taillights for that '62 as well...





or how 'bout this on my pal's '57 Ford retractable...???

wow those are incredible! Never thought the 59 light could be improved on.

I bet they could make a killer hand blown shift knob too!

Then you need to check out that site...www.Dichrome.com, that's what they specialize in...automotive glass accessories...shift knobs, door locks, air cleaner hold downs, all custom built to whatever color you want...

Oh BTW, that's my son's '59 Caddy in the pic...

Yes, he is...

and as for the "hippy," well, to each his own...he can kustom build one to your specifications, size, shape and color...
