    Great time, great people, lots of great ideas. I really liked the 61 Chevy 2dr Wagon conversion.

  7. Did the '61 wagon begin life as a bubble-top coupe?

    Think this is Buick Lido Lavender? Looks damn good on a '40.

    I've never been to Autorama but it looks like you bring your chair and pop a squat next to your ride? Looks like an indoor cruise in...and lots of fun. Thank you for the pictures!

    Great photos, I was there with my car, looked around but this allowed me to really focus and remember what I saw while taking it all in, I was down stairs several times always a big crowd. I'm adding a couple of my car, I also won 1st in my class..........................Al IMG_1710.JPG photo 1 (18).JPG IMG_1385.JPG IMG_1801.JPG IMG_1805.JPG IMG_1778.JPG

    Would love to see Traditional Kustoms do a story on that 49.. Was it ever in any of the little pages books in the 50's?

    It was in a s***load of little books back in the day. It was shown in black for a while.

    Stay tuned for a Hop Up article on this beauty! We were taking some pics on Sunday before Autorama opened with Dan from Hop Up to do some teasers. Climo's car is singular & remarkable with all the trick mods that were done to it. A 49 convert that was channeled, sectioned, chopped & loaded with a hot Olds drivetrain.
