    So swoopy. Love it, love it. The fins are works of art, let alone the rest of your work. You an Nads are going to have to have a dance-off.

  7. Ian,

    You are the freakin Pied Piper of Kool!

    You have turned that Caddy into an F'n rocketship, and entered the lexicon of the most talented Kustom builders of the genre...

    I spent the day going through this thread, while I should have been workin! I sure hope I get a chance to see that Caddy up here in Nor Cal!

    I googled you looking for a website; found your blog 7 Pgs into google's search results...

    When I'm ready to start the custom metal work ahead to pull off my Kustom, I hope I can scrounge up the sheckles to enlist the help of someone with your talent for the work that's beyond my fabrication skills...

    Wow. This update is a shot in the arm. The unique color is accenting the body modifications.

    It's a PCL primer. The painter will take it from there. Needs more attention, but I'm not a body guy.

  27. This is a VERY cool spaceship. Harley Earl would be proud. This and the Cody Walls '59 wagon are my favorite builds.
