    I personally have a fetish for the '60's styling, maybe because of the creativity that is expressed, defiantly because of the competiton influenced designs, chrome, different paint choices, tuck'n roll and pleated interiors and not to mention the different wheel choices.
    So. let's see what blow's yer skirt up ?
    Show and tell about your project / Rod ......or pictures of cars that YOU think of that depicted that sceen.

    I'll start with these .......

    There is just something about '60s styling that does it for me. Could be its easier to wax nostolgic about someplace where you have been.

    I think that the utmost coolest thing about '60s rides is the fact that they could be tweaked and customized and still run like a scalded ape.
    Recall that in the '60s "All show and no go" was not considered a cool thing.

    Nothing, the Packford's final vision is a '60s thing, I've got the chrome slots, I wanna paint her flake but the body needs a lot of work. I'd like to do a canted quad headlight front for it, but the wife hates that idea. Shit, I wouldn't even mind going '70s honestly, panel paint and murals in an LSD haze. I'm a child of the '70s man.

    We need to get together sometime, haven't seen you in a million years.
