    Damn Jim, that really looks good. I don't think I could ever build a true 60s custom like that, I like the cookie-cutter customs mostly, but that really does look cool. Kopper Kart get under your skin?
     
  3. Love the grill. I am looking for that perforated metal to do something with the 58 T-Bird grill on my 54 Ford. Where can I find it?

    I don't know that I would call it 60's.

    Looks neat Jim.

    I'm sorry Mr. Kustom Historian, late 50s early 60s.

    I knew it looked somewhat familiar and the first thing I though of was Junior's coupe, but I could only find pictures of the first version when the thought corssed my mind.
