Jimmie L Holmes' 54 ford "Poison Ivy",
This was done in '84.
Tarlo , Just to set the story right , The car was restored by Carl Olsen . What I did was all the paint work , including the flames and the silver leaf lettering along with the pinstriping. The ironic part of the story is that the car originally was owned by Billy Wilkerson , who lived on the street behind me when I was a kid !!
Not real early, but i've always dug Jack James' Larry Watson painted '57 Buick.
Here are 3 more of the Jack James car, from kustomrama.com

Here's the Pierson Brother's coupe
Wow great thred, Im subscribed!
Got some other pics about this 56' Car Craft ?...
Thaks for posting here :°)
It's a pretty new build ..but I was going for an early '60s look with mine (kinda like a full-size AMT kit):
Early flames are the best.
I have a very high appreciation for any style in it's infancy. It's more raw....more punk rock.
My historical owners' informations shows that the
Flames have been painted in the early 50's !
Second owner was an auto body repair man from KY
The man puchased the car, Painted the flames
and customised the car somewhere between 1950-1955,
Drove it up into the early 60's before sold it...!
Killer Thread........... I got 33/34's
