Awesome Thread!!!!!! Just got a few questions I answered!
i had to convert this photo to black and white. i like it so much better.
Great photo Jason. The weezner shoebox is one of my favs
i wish i took this photo. i found it Rik's site and had to see it in black and white. Its a timeless car and photo. I'll have to keep working on my photos to get them just right.
Goodlord this is a gorgeous shot.........especially in black and white.
doesn't Nachfalter fall into the OP's original category? just an amazing piece of art to me...
WOW Jeff not sure how I missed you posting this but that is a great picture!! Looks like something Marcia or George could have taken back in the day. Perfect.
P.S. You need to post some pictures of your car as it was getting built someday.
Thanks for the compliment^^^^. I was just messin with my old cell phone And I thought the picture looked kind of old.Besides that, I was trying to get the thread goin.
beautiful car, perfect background
HISTORY LESSON TIME !!!!
Look these guys build cars that were CLASSY not TRASHY. Maybe for people will start building CLASSY CUSTOMS again.
Its raining Sleds right now !!!!!!!!!
Haha, Yeah thats what I was thinking! All the good shit is back to the top!
I know what you were wishing it was raining............ Zupan merc with quad headlights!!!
Great looking CUSTOM!!
I love that 1949 Mercury....
Whos building TRASHY customs? all the cars i see in magazines look cool as hell. OOOOH if its not up to your standards it must be trashy.
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.
Damn, I'm out of popcorn !!!!!!
Ignore this clown (BIG GUNNS) Bickford 2 out of his 4 posts have been smart ass comments trying to stir up shit.
What a lineup of sleds right here.
In the Barris book vol 3 page 10 is different angle but same time. That is a great line up!!
here it is!! The 41 chevy peaking out on the right side is Dick Arkline's. I've talked with him a couple of times.
BIG GUNS ..... this thread might not be all your taste,you might find some of these cars simple and plain.
What a great shot that is,this is just perfect.
Ya Dick was telling me some great stories of both Sam and George.
I love this car,you got that right Bickford this a great lookin custom.
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.
Here's another, I'm building with friends help a '52 Chevy in the Larry Watson style.
I have to find a early wheel cover that I like....
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 ...
