I like that interior a lot. It looks very classy but not sissy.
Nice job Jeff & friends! Fresh twists on old concepts being applied to old favorites. I dig it!
I like a little bling for a grill. May need more bullets...
The box of bling has been found Praise the Chrome Gnomes .
Getting closer by the day.
That's one I'll be looking for in Oklahoma this year!!
Best looking headlight treatment on a 57 ford ever, the stock lights killed the looks of these cars
I think the '57 Fords are some of the prettiest cars ever to come out of Detroit. The only ugly parts on the cars, as texasred says, are the headlights. Lots of folks fixed that by using '56 pickup rings, which took care of that problem pretty easily. But adapting those Caddy lights is WAY Kool!
I've got to get to AC (Koolsville) and check it out.
I agree, the '57 Caddy headlight buckets, looks like they belong there. When you see it at Pomona be sure to check it out, a lot more kustom work has been done that we hadn't talked about. Can't wait to see it with the hood, grill, trunk windshield etc.,
WOW!! Just WOW!!!
Looks wicked as hell. Classy but kinda sinister, too
And Chrysler thought they invented the Foreword Look, you guys nailed it man!
Check this out....
Thank you Boss Kat for posting .
Those Cad headlights REALLY fit. The grille? Don't think it fits. But that's my opinion. And we know how that goes.
Those headlights are pointing at the ground......
What a fantastic custom.
But IMHO there's something wrong with those headlights. Also they look like long fingernails, not to fond about them.
You know you did a kustom right when there are a few people cryin and bitchin. It's perfect! I love this car.
The extended headlight brows work for this car. With the big tail fins and the wild interior, I don't think subtlety is the desired end result, and the extended brows fit with the exaggerated theme of the car. Very cool.
Looks like a sleepy old dude with a mouth full of new braces trying to grin.
Love it! Excellent work.
And that folks is why they are called Kustoms!
Its like the 5 blind men trying to describe a elephant after each one of them has laid a hand on it .
The individual pictures of parts of the car doesn't show the whole picture . The car is a Kustom with Class ,Style and Attitude . I hope you get to see it in person . It takes time and several walk arounds to grasp the extent of the build . Its very WOW . But that is my take on it.
Guys are making progress on the 57, windshield is in place...
Spent the day yesterday with Jeff Myers and his crew. Thought this was a kool shot of father & son working together. They have 7 more days then they will be Pomona bound...
Can't wait to see the finished car in person! It looks excellent in the pics and I hear it looks even better in person.
More progress.... Checkout some of the kool details.
