I love that blue 55. Might do the flames that way on mine. Kind of wanting to stay green on mine anyways.

Weird stuff, I dug up the same issue today with some others for the classifieds...Check out the 8 deuce Crager Hemi intake and Scott injector on page 8.

Seeing the 55 in color on the cover puts it on top. I'm also digging the 54 Ford with the scallops but the Wild Kat logo on the tail gate is bit cheesey for me.

The stance on Richard Axcell's F100 is killing it! Man, those pics are enough to make a man want to run full caps...

If it's the same 39 I'm thinking it sure had a killer stance. I could never get my 40 sedan to sit so low.

You can't just drop "my new '39 sedan" and let it slide!

The '55 car grill is GENIUS.

I gotta say this is one of my favorite little books and the I think the Joe Zupan truck on page 28 does it for me along with the Barris one in the restyles section even if it is a drawing!

I have never seen a picture of Axels 55 Ford pick up, and to my suprise that is the grill treatment I am working on for my grill, except I'm mounting the turn siginals behind the grill.
I guess it is real hard to have an original idea in the hotrod / custom world theese days.

It's in the city of Manchaca, TX...near dripping springs I believe. I went to go and look at it years ago. it was pretty darn rough. Very cool though.

Copper Kart. Although it's by far the most famous, it's also the wildest. I dig the styling and it's a Chev instead of the usual Effie (better lines to start with IMO). That said, the Srabian's '54 Effie is a close second for me.
"Spy Photo.JPG"...cool!

Upon further review, I think my fave it the Nick Cozzitorro '52. Radical work with simple paint vs everything else that is more simple changes in the grille area with gaudy paint designs.

I fell ya' Jalopy Jim. My dad and I were throwing ideas around for the grill area on my '55 ford pickup when Pops (oddly enough also named Jim) remembered that he had a spare set of '55 for car headlight brows. We thought that would be a cool unique look and I thought I would take it one step further by using a '55 ford car grill as well! So much for me being the next big visionary in the hot rod world lol....I guess I'm just a little behind my time!
