Like myself? I can't seem to make up my mind whether I like these things or not. They have a certain amount of undeniable dignified badass about them, but then I think they are a bit goofy, oddly shaped in the rear and maybe a little girlie (not that there is anything wrong with that). I am kind of digging them more lately and think I might be slipping into the dark side. Anybody feel something similar about these cars? You don't see too many of them customized in any real way other than some custom wheels and for salt flat racing. And for good reason, the lines are definitely bold and maybe too hard to work with and make clear improvements on. The factory lines are quirky, but they are strong. I was kind of digging around for some examples that are street cars that have been toughened up a little, lowered maybe, more aggressive wheels/tires, but not cheesy. Anybody have any good examples to share for inspiration? I am thinking a dual supercharged, 4 spd manual one might be in my future some day, but I would want it to be just slightly more badass looking than factory, just slightly. Just enough to give someone a hint it might be packing. In the planning stages of what my next project might be 10-11 years from now when I am done with and recovered from my current truck project. Here are some things I have found. I saw this baby at the CA Auto Museum in Sacramento a couple of months back a bit street roddy Or should I just get a '53 Stude coupe instead? .
