Pearlcraft

Due to circumstances I won’t bore you with, I sold my ’65 Riviera last week. I’ve never been good at selling cars and have a distaste for the process, but it was something I had to do for my own sanity. It’s good though… And I’ve taken consolation in the […]

Feeling Continental?

Feeling Continental?

To be totally honest, I initially hated all Continental kits, and thought they had no place on a custom… Apart from the stock 40s-era Lincoln equipped with  it’s namesake, my mind would always go to those over-the-top Foxcraft kits with bumper extensions and a goofy tacked-on tire sitting a mile high.

The Kustomrama Truck

The Kustomrama Truck

I know… Two posts, one day… BUT, stop what you are doing right now and get on the H.A.M.B.. Kvipt posted a thread on a survivor truck a few days ago and it’s turned into a glorious story that any traditional custom guy would love. It’s too good to miss. […]

Top Kustom Shop Trucks of the 1950s

Top Kustom Shop Trucks of the 1950s

Save it or Shave it?

I’ve loved the discussions so far on fender skirts and vehicle stance this past week. Yes, there are a few universal truths to customizing, but it all comes down to opinion and personal (and hopefully good) taste in the end, doesn’t it? Here’s another one to ponder when you start […]

Why (and when) Fender Skirts Work…

Why (and when) Fender Skirts Work…

I think most of us can agree that fender skirts look really great under two conditions: 1. If they are an appealing shape and 2. If they are on the right car. Lets look at the appealing shape first; Skirts were meant to imply motion, making a car look like its […]

Elton Kantor’s Shoebox

Elton Kantor’s Shoebox

Short and sweet today… I give you Elton Kantor’s shoebox to discuss. When asked by a buddy of mine to give an opinion, I said this: “Never before has such a fine front-end been executed along side such an ugly ass. I consider Elton’s shoebox to be the Kim Kardashian […]

The Sargenti ’56: Part 2

The Sargenti ’56: Part 2

It’s not uncommon for me to find a single picture of an obscure historical car and obsess over it for years. I’ll try to hunt down more pictures, information, or anything else that can lead credence to the legendary status that builds in my mind’s eye. It’s the unknown that makes […]

Oakland Roadster Show 1954

Oakland Roadster Show 1954

First let me say that I get sick to my stomach every time I see all the killer pics of cars at the Grand National Roadster Show posted on here. Its one of my all-time favorite indoor car shows, and due to working overseas at the same time, I’ve missed […]
