Bittn By The Fleetline Bug!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. Thanks John! I think your's is killer - you won't bump into many in that nice warm colour! As for stance, I am on 15s, the front of yours looks similar ..maybe it's the sand bags in the trunk! :D:D
    p.s. I always take pics when the gas tank is full. Sounds funny but you'd be surprised at the difference in bumper height on a full tank. :eek:

    I love this car. Thought I wanted to chop mine, but now I'm not so sure. Any more info on this car? What wheels/tires, front fender trim? Any more pictures?

    They are sweet old rides, I have a 48, just under the line of what you were looking for...
     
  7. stock fender trim.
    wheels look like stock steel with trim rings and center caps and probably around a 205/70/15 radial

    you're right. NICE car.
    the more i look at it, the more i think i'm going to do something similar. 'cept maybe get rid of the license plate peckers and trunk release.

    I just picked up a '51 fleetline. After seeing that maroon one I don't want to chop it anymore. What a nice car!
