We think alike, find a photo of the Bill Harrah 1933 Cadillac All Weather Phaeton, when flipper hub caps are mentioned that is the first car I think of. Bob

Something within the cobwebs of my memory says that the big Caddy from like 36 or so had the 1st flippers. Somewhere I have a pic in a big book, but where's the book? I did say cobwebs...
Having the project is what makes me happy, finishing it isn't something I think about.

Well, for some grammar is a bit of a sticky issue...

But, for the rest of us (haha) Kustom today and Kustom then often represent two different things. This may just be me, but when I see the work Kustom I associate it with a more modern interpretation of what was (the real radical over-chopped/lowered/flame throwered/ratty stuff you see in certain publications these days). Again, that may just be me (and there's always exception to the rules).

Back then I believe Kustom was reserved for the more radical show-type stuff, no? Where as customs were more reserved, classy builds (like the '34 above)

I dunno, maybe I'm way off base but that's the way I see it and thats my $0.02
You grow up and you calm down. You're working for the clampdown.
