  11. Please tell me that the white chevy stays at that height ALL of the time.I really hope that this isnt your "Parking stance". I would hate to see this car have to raise up for "Drive Height".

    Some absolutely amazing period customs....

    Here are a couple which I think suit the '48-'52 time period..... I may be wrong.

    A couple cars from Down Under....

    JB thanks for this thread, exactly why i come here. Just read the whole thing and learn't so much. I'm going to be far more careful when folks ask me about my 65 Amazon (wannabe Merc) and i tell them its moving towards being a very mild kustom with a slight taildragger stance. Think i'll stick with it's just an old car, with dodgy rear springs, some non original parts and been hacked about abit:D. Seriously i'm always learning and thanks again for the great thread, can only dream about cars like this. If i won lotto i know what cars would be in my garage and anyone of these year correct cars would be one of them.

    Cheers Dan

    Bringing it to the top. One of my favorite thread.
     
  29. Where's a pic of that chopped and smoothed 48 Chrysler New Yorker three window coupe? Bright red with chrome smoothies. Those have the makings of real fluid customs.

    Had to bring this thread back up. This ways people can see what a real custom looks like. Nothing over chopped or looking all broke laying the frame or body on the ground. Wish more people with get it and look at old magazines instead of these crap magazines all about the scene.

    These cars had class and style. Most so called customs have no class and i dont even know what kind of style they where trying to go with. YES I KNOW! Everyone has there own opions.
