    cydways, Good luck on your '55. You can find my mild Club Sedan in my intro. Just click on my name, and look for posts that I started. Should be too many to look through before you find it.


    Some standard 55-56 Kustom tricks, if there is such a thing. 55 merc wagon taillight, or 60 Dodge Pheonix taillights. 58-60 Thunderbird Front bumper, '55 Pontiac side trim.

    Here's a great looking '55 Fairlane Vic. It has a huge but subtle mod, in that the guy grafted on a complete roof from a '56 (non-Crown) Vic, which has a factory chop.

    Holy S%$T!!! That just might be the ultimate "gook wagon"!!
    The funny thing is, who ever did that is obviously super talented when it comes to working with stainless or aluminum (??) I can't imagine the hours upon hours that went into it. The craftmanship is top notch, its just that the whole thing is over the top!!

    No shit?!! Thanks for that insight! I remember the thread about the Cernys Sr and Jr, and your picture being posted, but I didn't notice the top! I believe that your picture was taken at Paso, but I don't recall having seen the car there (although I've been there every year since 1993)!
