    Thanks Cruiser, here's a couple more pics, I ve got to figure out how to get the pics on Kustom Cadillac Cruisers. It's pretty low but the back end needs to be a little lower than the front.

    Thanks, It's a custom mix the original builder came up with from House Of Color.

    I have to say, taking a stock car and doing all the things to it the factory design teams WANTED to do but couldn't due to mass production compromises (like no seams, lower roof, lower ride height, better paint, perfectly straight body panels and fit etc.) is hands down the way to build a beautiful (and acceptable for most) custom. You simply can't build an ugly car following this formula, but...

    This De Rosa built Cadillac is what I think a true custom should be. Completely custom. ToolowtoolongtoochoppedtooleanedforwardtoocurvedtoostraightjustTOO!@#$in'UNIQUEoverthetop.

    For me these guys pulled off something that's REAL hard to do. They completely transformed a stock car into something ELSE that's more beautiful (wicked?) than the original design. CadZZilla was another one. There aren't many.

    Chopped & sectioned 1953 convertible that was built and owned by a former member of our club. It has a working top too.

  9. Here's my '66. Next on it's list of stuff to change is paint. The pics look good, but its a 50ft. paint job. I wanna peel off the vinyl and paint the roof red metalflake, and paint the car a solid red tone to match the metalflake roof. Then do some mild scallops on the side and hood

    Mine at ride height. Just back on the road. All new ball joints, bushings, bearings, brakes, etc. No bags, either. Still needs exhaust, probably do some bellflowers to fill that gap at the back.

  15. Hey Wayne,
    Here's the Buick but it's actually a Cadillac Coupe Deville underneath so it kind of applies. Rags

    Charles,that reminds me of the good old days, when I had my 52 convertible, are you gonna make the coupe into a convertible, or build that one? That coupe of yours is fine!! Here's mine on the way to largo fl, to see Frank over at Enhanced Concepts,for a c-notch, and driveshaft tunnel job, and few tweeks on my air ride.

    When are you going to Franks? (or have you already been?) I just stopped by there last week to see him.

    I actually went to see your old Vert in Atlanta when your buddy had it. I really wanted it, and that has been my dream ever since.

    Obviously, my red coupe is close, but it's not a Vert. I'm gonna build the Vert, and not touch the coupe. I guess I will end up with 2 red Caddy's.

    I've already dropped it off at Franks, he's working on it now. That's the best thing you could do I wish I had kept my vert, and I would still have both caddys.

    I did these Photoshopped Cruisers for another Hamb post...

    Thought they would fit in here as well.

    Something different...
