Some wall hangers in Dads garage.
Dave Losen's pink & white Ford is in the back-ground...
I think I see Bob Kieth's '39 Ford in the back-ground...
Thank you for posting these, I love them!
Another Lincoln Land Kustoms car.
Thanks @chopolds for posting your pics. This rear end treatment is too kool....
I remember that "Dad's 53" Chevy having the most amazing color on it!
The green on the '53 was eye magnetizing.
I remember this car... I was told it was chopped when nearly new & used for the family's daily driver... shopping, kids to school the whole shee-bang!
His Dad told him, it would ruin the resale value of the car. He still had it when he passed away.
Actually, a Donn Lowe built car, for Tommy DeRosa!
I accidently posted these earlier in this thread in Painted versions. They were in primer at this show.
Jim Wilkens, who used to own Lil Miss Vicky. Who now owns the Oriental Buick. This Stude no resides in Kansas with a wild scallop job.
I took a picture of his door panel in Springfield, the bottom pic was taken in Michigan. George West. I was trying to take a picture of his interior, so he opened up the door for me.
That was George West's (R.I.P.) Merc. He was a heck of a nice guy & a L.L.K. member... Front wheel drive & trick through out.
And you forgot Diesel powered. Being a kid at the time, It seemed like he was older than most of the custom guys showing cars. Heck of a nice guy was an understatement. A frontal view from a show later on.
Oh, I remember it being diesel powered... George had a positive attitude and a philosophy about using O.E.M. parts exclusively. "The junk yard is your friend" He felt that in the event of a break-down, you could get everything you needed for a repair at any parts store. No aftermarket B.S.. Brilliant!
this was built in ark city, by jerry loomis, built for kirby neal of koolrides. the car was sold never seen again.....

Holy crap! A very rare @finkd appearance!
16 year old me was at that show, but I didn't see that kid in any of the pics. It's super cool to see the fairgrounds circa 1986 and pick up the things that have not changed.
Thanks for sharing the photos!
I know some on here will think I'm a little sick in the head for saying this but I love kustoms that were built in the 80's.I think they look better than the kustoms built prior to the 60's.
The customs of the 80's are just like the customs from prior years; Some are amazing... some are butt-ass ugly. And so it goes!
