Here's some more from my roadtrip FL to TX
Here's my 61 falcon still Aa work in progress
And my soon to be 62 rambler. Just cleaning up to sell.
I love the 61 falcons! Nice rides
Yeah but I bet Granny got a little miffed when she had to smoke her cigars in the back.
I stumbled over this pic today and somehow I thought of this thread.
the waxheads valiant safari has to be one of the best in oz - he is a hamber too.
It's OT but this is my new daily driver. It's a '67 Olds Vista Cruiser. I've owned them before and always wanted another. It has the 330 and Turbo 400. It's a California black plate car so no rust. All it needs is a pair of good tail light lenses. These are pretty faded. Should be a fun ride.
Knas-n, are this all 59 Ford wagons in Sweden.
OT, but very cool!!
Yeah, Olds Vistas are some of the coolest wagons EVER. Between a 67 and a 72 i wouldnt know which one to choose.
The Mobsteel folks had this awesome '56 Century wagon at Frankenmuth this weekend to show off their new large-diameter steel wheels. I'd probably want 15s on mine, but I thought the stance and everything was very cool.
The big steelies would be neat on a late-model Charger or 300C.
Dont think i see those on anything really. Just my personal taste.
Maybe on a minitruck, but i see it as a stretch too.
Uhhh...no. I don't see them on anything other than a farm wagon. I don't see any size wheels over 16" looking good on any of this old iron. Just my opinion.
If you guys re-read my post, I do not advocate large wheels on old iron. I mentioned the Charger and the 300C because they already have large-diameter, modern wheels. I happen to like the steel-wheel look and have often wondered how that might be accomplished on a modern car if I had to own one.
The 56, as I said, would look a lot better with 15s, but I think they nailed the stance and did good by not messing with it otherwise.
My 1960 Parkwood.....

Durrettcustoms, what size are those rims/tires?? I'm in the middle of a '60 Brookwood build and they look perfect
that is awesome
OH My ........ I want it ^^^^^^^^^^^^^ ....that is SO cool.
Is that a Hillman?
This is nice! The color looks at home on the body shape.
no its a ford 100e escort most call em a squire but this is the escort it was the poor mans version.
My mother had a BelAir sedan that color new...I really liked it.
My buddy Dave has been working on this wagon for a little while now . He just got the paint done and when I showed him this post he wanted me to share some pictures of his wagon .
It's a 1964 Dodge Dart wagon , which apparently only a few thousand made originally .
Oh NO! Don't tell me the wagon rolled into the pool??
DOH! I just noticed...that's the roof. WOW!
Yep, and there are way more I tell you
Well brother, that is fuckin insane! The quote on the back is as funny as it is true
Anyone know what that color code may be? Thats the two tone im going with and i like that turquoise.
Heres my 67 Belvedere.
And my 63 Dodge 330.
I just found out the wife and I are having twins. That puts us at four kids. A nine passenger long roof is starting to look real good about now.
