    I'm searching around after pictures of any 60's car with a carson top, fiberglass roof or removable hardtop.
    And i would also like to see them with the roof off.

    The cars i have in mind are like 59, 60-64 cadillacs, impala and so on..
    I would like to see some pictures, Best thing would be if anyone have like a build thread on any forum?

    hope you get what i'm searching for..

    Remeber Gatoloco? the 63 Buick that was a beautiful 60s style custom with outstanding paint and all? The one that many refer to as the car that brought them to early lowrider style and al that?

    Well, that got brought to the VERY NEXT level by some clueless ass hat with a ruffly 10" chop and a carson style top with spear shaped sail panels and all...
    that is what i think of when i hear 60s cars with carson top.

    But i guess anything can be done with enuff goodtaste and planning. Good luck.

    Bill Hines nephew, Teddy Z did a 60 Chevy with a carson, IIRC. Blue on blue. More modern looking custom, but a custom none the less.

    The Custom Rodder September 1994 has a full feature on it. It also shows how Teddy Z did the top.
