  2. I'm not sure of the year of this one, but it certainly is an early looking flame job.

    A '26-'27 T with a midget nose is the ultimate Hot Rod.

    This example of flamed car done wrong. The car owner told me this was post war car. It might been before he screwed the car up. The flames makes the car look like a clown car. I remember going to the circus seeing two clowns ride in a car like this, pulling cotton candy cart. Now I know why I hated going to the circus. Clowns are scary and creepy. Pinstriping on the car. The car owner told me it was Von Dutch style. This far away from anything Von Dutch would have done. The thing that almost made me all must throw up. On the dash was painted "Flathead Forever" and on the trunk "Better Idea by Ford". I wish these Goldchainers would stop screwing up these cars.
