Let's see some photos of your '52.
refer to the avatar on the left.
I highly recommend making the trip OneBad56.. Kevin and everyone involved in putting on the CCR are a class act and the cars and people are well worth the adventure. I like your idea of taking your time and enjoying the road rather than pushing hard - you might see something you wish to pause and peruse!
I am currently working on a '51 Fleetline that will be a mild custom and always interested in seeing other similar cars. Mine'
s apart now but here it is before I took it apart.
Big thanks Moriarity for posting. Stunning show! I gotta put this on calander for future.... Although I feel permanently "tail light shamed"
Late 70's mild custom: shaved, nosed, decked, one piece 51 olds windshield, two piece hood made into one piece. Stock height with daisy mags, medium blue paint with white to yellow to red flames over the front end. Do not know how many owners there have been.
The previous owner lowered it, painted it satin black and put on the wide whites, baby moons and black steelies.
He also re-did the interior in leather and the original seat was re-sculptured.
I've added extra grille teeth, installed one piece California bumper, upholstered the trunk, got rid of the '80's billet knobs, window cranks, door cranks, and pedals. Installed banjo style cranks with art deco knobs. Still have to change out the wheel. I have extra interior trim which I will be polishing this winter and then installing. Engine compartment also has been re-dressed from modern crap to finned items, not overdone. Took off a flat bar trailer hitch too as well as changed out the ariel from a rubber thingy to a chrome one
Still has the original glass and window frames, which are slightly scratched and pitted respectively.
Unfortunately some other winter plans are now on hold, coming back from a show that would have taken 8 hours to get home, the harmonic balancer/crank pulley decided they didn't like working any longer and decided to part their ways from the crankshaft about 1.5 hours after leaving the motel..
Have to replaced the engine, hence looking for a new one. Engine has been rebuilt once and the crank ground 10/10, therefore less expensive to replace than rebuild back to stock specs.
Does this whole event take place at the head quarters hotel?
Can you tell me the name of the head quarter hotel?
I think I will have to miss Santa Maria next year and come to Indy. Looks like a killer kustom show.
at the hotel on Thurs and Friday. (some of us get there on Wednesday) and on Saturday the show moves to Edwards drive in.
go here for an entry form, pre register early as the show is already over half filled and cuts off at 200 cars.
Thank You, looking forward to seeing some new cars
That's a Clean lookin' Fleetline you got there Dave!
Very Kool Pix !! Thanks !!!
Man guy's, I think I need to make a trip to this Kustom only show in Indy first before I can get my Vicky back there to join in the fun. Some of the guy's here in So Cal are trying to put a Kustom road trip together. We will see what happens.
Bitchin Vicky, you guys will not regret it....
