This chopped Ford convert sold last fall at the Labor Day auction in Auburn for 15000 and it was still real nice....
I pulled my Chevy up next to the “cool” cars for some photo ops. You can see Jerry Titus's Chrysler in the background of the first photo
Man the Doug Thompson cars are so badass!
Thanks guys for posting the pics. Please keep them coming. The Kustom that @Sum54ford posted look it's been built right out of an AMT box.
I think I have more but can't find em right now... I may have to start a thread on the 87 Springfield Ill show...
I was just watching the event video from this show.
Kool look (hey that's a palindrome) back in time. That Village Inn in the scenery reminds me of one next door to an old job I had 35 years ago in SE Portland. 6 egg omelets slathered in country gravy. I think I shall dedicate my first stent to the Village Inn. They probably invented the tilt column.
Here is one from the hotel.
Almost identical. We custom guys think alike.
Thanks for the pictures Mark, it’s always good to see history.
Thank you. I was actually in Springfield that weekend for a Navy Reserve meeting. I could not attend the event but enjoyed the motel parking lots at night. I remember a Merc. that had the face of a Wurlitzer Juke Box in it's headliner. Thank you for posting these.
This one from Illinois. He had a remote starter on it. At shows he would start it constantly.
I have a picture of that headliner at home, I will post it here tonight
^^^ That shoebox with the Thunderbird bumper is interesting. Not sure I have seen that done before at least in that combination.
Looks like @chopolds beat me to it but here’s my picture of the jukebox
Stopped by my Dads house and got some more 86 KKOA pics. Dad was there in his 48 Ford Sedan, it’s in the event video driving in to the show!
