    Rumored to have come out of Sarasota Florida. Any of you recognize this car? It also has metal bubble skirts 20221029_204403~2.jpg

    It was at the 1991 World of Wheels show in Atlanta where it won its class. Was possibly at the Joe Bailon show in California in 1990 based upon some things found in the car. FB_IMG_1667210799800.jpg

    Has a bit of a Mopar look to it. Bet it fools a few who see it. I like it.

    Don't generally go for pink, but that's pretty cool.

    That's because of the 55 Dodge Royal lancer trim and paint scheme

    Someone put a lot of work into building that custom.
    Hope you can bring it back to the way it was in 1991.

  22. I dunno, I think it’s got a certain kind of charm, art deco perhaps?

  23. I would clean it up before I made a decision. I like it, I think it looks worse because it’s not as “polished” as the rest of the car.

    Interesting but I can't get excited over the color combo. If it were me the Dodge trim would come off and the car would be painted a solid color and that might be that same white. Somehow I imagine black with that same interior and the skirts back on it though.
     
  26. I like it...but why did they have to go with pink? Oh well, its not mine so my tastes are irrelevant.
    Anthony, you'd drive anything....:D
     
  27. Needs a lot of changes to look like a real custom, maybe more like this one, very ugly in its current state.

    I t has a 1950`s vibe to it. Sadly, most people aren`t into that style today.
