Anyone have any more shots of this car??? Would love to see them if you do...
ive been trying to find more pictures of that car also...
i think it sits a bit too low for a "right" 40's look but its pretty nice!
maybe i can stretch my "custom" search even farther into the 30's!
can anyone photoshop that sucker a couple inches higher??
That could be a HAMB first!
The car looks real nice. I bet there will be a bunch of pics of it once everyone starts posting their show pics.
I've spent all morning on the HAMB trying to find more pictures.....
I love westguard style kustoms and this '38 just blew my mind. The sled has
a lot of attitude sitting there beside the Cole built '36. I need to know more
and see more pictures.
Hey I took that pic. glad you can use but it's the only one I have of that car. sorry.
I will look today at lunch and post if I have one on the camera.
Not shure if it is the same car
I think someone said that it is a cut down sedan!
Nope, different car...
Ok, my bad!
but change to a white top and other wheels, and it would look alike.... or are there more details I`ve missed?
i do will post later
Sixcarb sent me these... It's official... This '38 is my third favorite car in the whole world...
Ryan, I met the wife of the owner, she was with Susan Foster. Cole did some work on that car, you might ask him about.
Thats a bitchin ride!!
It sure looked nice sitting next to Kirk's Cole-bilt car! BEEEAUTIFUL cars....
Yeah, I just emailed Cole... I'll post any details I get...
So then a philosophical question for you Ryan...
We talked about you wanting to do a car like this... It's a beautiful car and I thought about you when I saw the pic...
I honestly can't imagine you building it a whole lot differently...
So does that bother you at all? Would you still build it?
The overriding question is how do you build a car that someone else has built just about perfectly, and make it your own? (Hirohata, Matranga, Calori, etc...)
Or do you just build something else and dig on the existing car from afar?
It's easier to do with a car that was built a long time ago because you can say it 'inspired' you, but it's harder with a modern build...
a couple pics i took of that '38 at my photobucket...
I molestered that thing with my camera. Photos coming at lunch....(2hours for me)
What about doing your coupe like that? I think it would look great!
I've thought many times about redoing mine in the late 40's style.
Airbag the back, and add skirts. Then if you wanted to go back to Hot Rod, just pull the skirts, and pump up the bags.
So......does this mean the 38 is getting a carson top?
I got a shot or two of it. I still have to sort through the 650 photos I took and get them on my site.
Morty said it's the same one that was in Hop Up back when it had a black top and sat a tad higher. Looks way mo' bettah now.
We talked to Cole about shooting that car... so if everything goes as planned we'll be shooting it real soon. I've been a fan of the car since I first saw it at Paso 2004... it had a different top and different wheels if I remember correctly.
I still believe the ’38 Deluxe was about as pretty as any Ford ever produced. “Ugly Duckling” my ass.
I’m glad I went ugly early.
NOPE, same car...
That's the magic of Cole, able to turn anything into something cool(er). It's Kent Kozera's '38 (which was his dad's I think?). Cole brought that down with Kent's gold Flathead and the Metallicoupe. And, if I'm not mistaken again, I believe Sunday was the first time Kirk and his wife had seen the finished product. The car won First in its class, as did Hetfield's Buick (so no hurt egos).
My '38 is my favorite car... I'd never change it.
As for doing a cabriolet... True, I wouldn't do it much differently than this one, but it would be different (prolly built a little more era specific) and it would be mine. I've never done cars as statements really, so I wouldn't really care too much what the perception was. It's all good...
Man, I love that car though... They did a great job on it...
No shit? So the car is originally a mid west car... I'm pretty sure I saw the car in it's original form at Googuys in KC.
Don't know the exact history/origin of the car, but Kent brought that to Cole a while back for some updates. It's still got the "street rod'ish" leather interior, but Cole put a Lincoln dash in it, so it looks good inside too. The wheels/tires and top made all the difference in the world, though, didn't it?
Dare I ask? What are the other two?
Yeah... wheels and tires made all the difference in the world. Is it me or is the stance a little adjusted as well? Prolly air bags...
I wish I had all that stainless trim...
My other two favs? I own em.
