    Well a handful of us on here are not about THE SCENE. We are not trying to be cool and follow whats going on in the shit magazines like Ol' Skool Rodz, CK Deluxe, Rebel Rodz and im sure there is more out there. I am about the CARS! So im sure your style of scenester cars isnt for me.

    Its about the style cars.

    Here's one, I built in the '90's a '41 Ford early custom style, it was a Top One Hundred R&C car in 2001.

    CRUISER :cool:

    The 1941 Ford fits on this thread , but the Chevy doesn't fit in. The trim is off a later car.

    That trim looks to me to be off of a '53, which you could buy in those days as early as September of 1952...
    I believe it fits here... please correct me if I'm wrong. I'm wrong a lot these days ... :cool:
