    I think you can probably find some in some 50's era custom car magazines but that just sounds all wrong for some reason. Kind of like a fanny pack on a fat girl.

    back when we were in HS....continental kits were called "manure spreaders" with as much disdain as we could muster. Please...do yourself a favor....think of something else to do

  7. IMHO,A continental kit on any car of the forties doesen't look right. They don't look too bad on some fifties cars.
