The Jalopy Journal
That was a very cool show that year. Literally and figuratively!!
I can still feel the cold looking at those pictures.
@Jive-Bomber I recognized a lot of the things in 'Cars' from my own 66 explorations years before, but would love to see your list of places along...
I was at the event that you flagged them off at. I wish I could tell you I had some pictures of you doing that.
The pictures I have are mainly of...
Very cool car overall.
One of the intriquing details is the headliner.
Can't tell if it's formed sheetmetal or some sort of satin material, but...
Thanks for the insight @GeeRam.
I knew Formula cars of the period did not, but assumed that the class this car was running in would've.
In the Petrolicious video he mentions Dan Gurney racing the Impala without a seatbelt.
Even NASCAR required seatbelts from it's inception in...
Please excuse the wheels, but here's my Pontiac in about '98-'99 at the Wigwam Motel in Holbrook AZ.
I was towing a U-haul trailer back home to...
Great looking truck and color!
The only change I would make is to paint the front bumper the same color as the wheels.
Oh Man! Fingers crossed!
Man, that is one big beauty!
Here's to hoping this little gem is safely stashed away in somebody's garage without any trendy updates.
I dislike it when people lump white letter tires into the never category. "Oh they never ran them back in the day". Fortunately there have been...
@Murphy32 I think that last rendering you posted is @Evilfordcoupe™ 's old car.
Not the greatest picture, but it was all I could find quickly....
Those are pretty sweet.
This convertible one has a really cool dash.
I know there's nothing earth shattering or particularly hard to pull off, but damn I love this Steve Stanford '62 Chevy. It sorta has the same...
I'm digging through stuff I stashed away back in the late 80s and found this set of BLC fog lamps.
Just curious if anyone else has ever seen these...
Ahh, Thanks @Moriarity! I missed that.
I like the B&W shot of it in front of Singer. I loved those mall car shows. It broke up the boring trips...
All this talk on specs and history (which I love, thank guys) lets see this sucker! :D
I like how he routed the headers into the the cowl and rocker panels.
Also, it that Barris's Surf Woody on the right of the lead picture?
Show him this thread and encourage him to get it back together! I'm sure I'm not the only one who would love to see it up and running.
I wouldn't change a thing! Love the Buick wires on it!
@rudestude, what's the story on the wreck? Racing or just an unfortunate event? It looks like it was a really nice car.
The picture of Ivo's car piqued my interest, so I went and found this on his website.
I would love to have a '37-39 Plymouth pickup. Here's a couple I found on the web.
This is by far my favorite look. The rake, the wheels & tires, nerf bars, the flamboyant yet restrained scallops & fins. Everything about it is...
@xxwelderxx had his up for sale https://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/project-1953-plymouth-2dr-hardtop-chopped.1088416/ in 2017.
It's probably a given, but would love to see it put back to the iteration in your first picture.
I watched this a couple weeks back. It was quite the let down to see that the car was totally in pieces and that a good bit of it wasn't even...
Ah, I should've looked back and refreshed my memory on this thread. It's crazy how similar they are.
That would be pretty cool to see them both...
Hey @Austinrod take a look at this video starting at 7:49
It may not be your car, but damn if it isn't it's twin.
