    Been searching all day and I can not seem to find any 1950-51 Fords with a front 1950 Buick teeth/grill/bumper. :confused:
    It's probably in good reason that I haven't found this yet but if there is any I would love to see it.
    Have an idea in my head and I can't quite picture it yet. I love the looks of the 50 Buick teeth but I want to make sure that it doesn't look to "cartoonish" like a monster. :eek:

    Thanks in advance!

    Sorry if I use anyone's car here. Just trying to get the idea out.

    Want to see this: (yes I realize that's a Caddy bumper)

    I think it's called "underbite" and it looks absolutely God-awful, which is why you can't find pictures of it.

    Those headlights on that last car are DISGUSTING! On the bright side, they do draw your attention away from the bad mirrors and awful wheels.

    What did that poor car do to deserve that? Run over nuns and orphans?

    I was only 12 when Buick perpetrated that monstrosity. I couldn't stand it then and 60 years hasn't softened my impression. I'd hate to see a perfectly good Ford get f---ed up with one of them.

    lmao!! :D

    I believe that last picture is a Hamber, (it's where I found it), so, sorry for the bashing that I brought you, who ever you are.

    Anyways, disregard that last picture, I was just trying to show an example.

    that beige beast has at least a dozen "don't do this" items on it IMHO. it might be the apple of somebody's eye, but honestly, not mine.
    i can dig the grille on it, just a bit; but those headlamps just don't work for that body. those RIMZ aren't helping things, either.

    Or that decade. Or the next three decades, either.

    But, I will give it this- the workmanship looks pretty good.

    Why would you want to do that to a Shoebox Ford ? I have a 49 & 50 and I would NEVER , EVER , do that to my car or anyone else's car . That is about as shitty looking as a grill could get . I don't understand why someone would use that damn grill on anything !
    I am sure you can come up with something better for an idea on a grill beside that whatever thing of an idea for a damn grill !

    lmao! This is too much. But like I said in my original post, that there is probably a reason why I can not find any pics of them together. Just had an idea stuck in my head and I wanted to throw it out there to see if it has been done.
    rock on.
     
  17. I just realized this Buick has got boobie tassels. Comedy.

  20. I love the 50 buick grille, but it would just be way to huge on a little shoebox. not to mention it would not be easy at all to find a good one without paying a crap ton.
     
  21. Looks like a cow catcher on a steam train. Woo woo!;)
