Rocky "gets it".
Definately with skirts!
Rides a touch high for the skirts - looks a bit more 'hot rod' than 'custom'. Lower it three or four inches, then you can put them on
"AND THE BOWTIE ROLLS ON"
HERE IS MINE WITHOUT.
#2 just looks smoother.
Skirts. I tried a pair on my '51 but they would not clear the hubcaps, but I like skirts a little more when the car is real low anyway, low enough so you can just see the wide white showing, so hubcaps would not reall matter.
Your '50 looks real good .
I see that you are located in WV about 50 miles above Charleston. I found my '51 about 2 years ago a near Cedar Grove, WV which is about 15-20 southeast of Charleston.
I'm located way on the other side of the state right on the WV/VA border close to Winchester, VA.
If your ever over our way, give a shout .
At the risk of jumping on what seems to be the majority bandwagon, if it were mine I'd run the skirts.
Fine looking car either way.
I would say add the skirts but I may be partial to skirts.
Thanks everybody for all your coments.I have to be pretty careful of what I do to it. After 5 years of research she seems to be the last living 50 ford produced and a Bus.Cpe. to boot.I am installing a 50 merc. in her in preperation of a coast to coast tour with her next late next spring and summer.Will keep you posted on the Engine. I am looking forward to seeing alot of you guys on my trip.
Skirts, no question
Great looking car either way, but I like shoeboxes with skirts.
Skirts are more early custom look, I vote skirts
Whenever possible ... NO SKIRTS!
