    Uhm, @uncleandy 65 You ever get the feeling of dejavu? Kinda like you cut copy and pasted the exact same photo in the exact same thread. The green car directly above and the tangerine/white former 4 dr 54 five pics previous. You already put 'em up on June 23 and 24th, a mere 2 pages ago in this thread. Just sayin', the repeats and the bone stockers in other Kustom and Hot Rods threads are wearin' thin.

    So as to add something to the thread other than my brief rant, here's one I personally snapped with my camera. At GoodGuys Colorado 2019. I lean toward lowering these cars, but I know the raised up look has its fans too. A pretty beefy I Beam sandwiched between the frame and the already beefy bolt on front suspension.

    Hello,


    The 1953 Chevy Bel Air Hardtop was slightly lowered with a coil already taken out. But, with 6 surfboards and two guys, the car was a very low cruiser going to the beach. (possibly illegal in the lowered stance) No, we did not go to the Huntington Beach Pier, but down the coast, near Sunset Beach. It was much safer and the waves were fun. The 53 Chevy hardtop had chromed reversed rims, but we may have put on some Moon Racing Discs during that period of time.

    Hot rod parts (wheels/rims) experimenting was the order of the day. Our group had one full set of Moons that got moved around everyone’s cars at one time or another. Those were some fun times for us in high school. Real surfers or not, what a combo, hot rods/cruisers and a bunch of teenage/football surfers. (or want to be surfers…)

    Then a year later, it was the drive to TJ for some all white tuck and roll upholstery, including the trunk and roof/package tray. The last step was a very good looking green color. It was one of the only cars that had the custom car treatment instead of the high performance upgrades on other Chevy sedans. It may have been that the 6 cylinder motor was not as powerful as the Chevy V8 motors.

    The drag races against a 51 Pontiac and 63 Chevy Nova were classic show and no go races, that needed some jet propulsion to make it exciting. Teenage fun…what else was there to do on night time cruises?
