    See post 695. End of story. And yes, I read the story on the Flint resto...and the Bakan car...and the La Mesa car...:rolleyes:

    Oh, and thanks for the compliment, I just added it to my signature line. Frank, Dave and you know who you are, maybe we should start a social group?? the 1%ers? Kinda like that...

    If you don't like PERIOD CORRECT HOT RODS or understand what one is and what people are posting on a thread, don't respond w foolishness idiots like to muck up threads w NON confirming cars. It's sickening if your not into them make thread or go to one that confirms to your car or liking. It's not hard. If I was a mod I w delete a bunch of shit on here and just maybe u w get it if not I w ban your dumbass. Some of us love period traditional Hot Rods and come here for that some come for customs,some for pre 40 cars and bikes so they go to TROG threads and builds. Ik some of u post off topic stuff on purpose your grown men grow the hell up. Some post for the sake of posting it's absurd. Post your off topic,fiberglass, crap somewhere else.

    You start to notice a pattern with these guys, theres a few of them that really get bent out of shape about this stuff, its not enough that they dont want any part of it, they get their shit in a knot if anyone else talks about it too.
    Clearly, its not "ok with them" or they would stf, and stay off threads that have "period correct" in the title.

  5. Personally, I would take my lead from the good stuff and good workmanship. There have always been people who have aimed for the best possible workmanship and that's what I try to do

    What a great early photograph...

    Is that a shifter showing in there; and I wonder if it's column or floor shift

    I already posted this on Chips full fendered T thread, but man, I LOVE this truck!!! I don't know if the welding was done with 6013 or old coathangers, but its a great looking car...;):D

    I never noticed before, but he has some kind of flat cap over the emblem in the center of the Lancers. Nice touch. I'll go out on a limb here and guess it wasn't welded together with old coathangers.

    Being in my mid 70s,and was building hotrods an customs in the 50s n early 60s,my look on all this is that there is a lot of miss read n missunderstud stuff by the younger guys,some get real close to right,but right is a bit defernt depenning on were we're talking about{I'm talking Florida. I had two cars that I did for my self and helped out on many others,being in 3 car clubs plus doing many car shows back then. Workmanship was made better by the frenids an club members shairing skills an ideas. Here are a few of the most common things that seem wrong I see a lot now; In the 50/60s Primer was only thought of as temperairy only,the guys then were always going to get the cool shiny on to it,an did mostly,but a few never got too it{ flat primer was not a finish or even thought of as cool,just a step alomg the way to getting cool ]. Moon tanks were for drag cars at the strip,not as a fake added thing on the street. Headlights we used were 7in. sealbeams an the nicist aero bucket we could find,we did not use older big design things we see guys putting on now. There a few doz. other things,but you get the idea.

    and for the guys who think gas shielded welding was invented in the 1990's...When you read the phrase "heliarc welded" in an old magazine, this is what they are talking about, and its been around as long as hot rodding...
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gas_tungsten_arc_welding

    what has really changed is that nowadays, every backyard building has a tig welder in his garage, back then, only the higher end race shops would have it. And a lot of the old timers had gas welding skills most guys nowadays can only dream of. To a degree, we have come to depend on the equipment to make it easier for us.

    Are we bickering yet? It's so hard for me to tell sometimes.:rolleyes:
    50s and early 60s is my favorite era. So many of the early old rods still around, some being"up dated" and new ones being built a little differently. Then the specially built "show cars" came along, the original trailer queens. Phone booths on wheels, bath tubs with big blocks. converted horse drawn hearses, and fiber glass kinetic sculptures. Some were expertly built but if that is period correct you can have it.o_O
    Basically back then, I seem to remember seeing about the same percentage of treasure and crap that I do now, about the same percentage of guys who don't know their ass from a hole in the ground and guys who know it all, and the same amount of those who profess variety and creativity as long as doesn't look different. :eek:

    Lets get it back on track...I agree, as far as HAMB type hot rods go, '55-about '63 is the era that really grabs me.

    This car was also in Rod & Custom with a different owner and no door lettering. You have to wonder if this thing is still hidden away somewhere in the PNW.

    I've never seen this car before. I'd like to see more, does anyone know if it was ever a feature car in any magazines?
