    I agree 100% Can you imaging how much kooler it would look with the front end fixed properly. It would peg the kool factor gauge.

    Lets have some fun. I don't have a list but this is one I had always thought it would be kool to own. If that would ever happen, I would only change the width of the front end. You believe this would ruin the legacy of the kustom? I don't think it would. If I would change the front fender wells than I would agree with you.

    See how the tires fit within the fender well, This is an easy fix they have the wrong size wheels.... Very classy looking.

    Thanks for sharing your link, going to have to go back and check it out.

  14. I think I misunderstood. The wheel offset is strange in the new pictures versus the old ones. I agree about changing the wheels to get them to tuck better. I thought changing the wheelwells is what was being talked about. I guess I got my signals crossed. Sorry 'bout that. Now, back to our regularly scheduled programming..........E
     
  15. I was definitely talking about changing the wheel wells. I respect and acknowledge your position on historical customs and preserving them but at some point their is an albeit hazy line between preserving history, and just a car that was built a long time ago.

    Like I said, I respect your stance but in my mind that 39 isn't the Hirohata Merc. But, the whole point is moot because I probably wouldn't want to pay the price for that car then enter into all that entails to change it to my liking. So... carry on, don't mind my ramblings! :)

    Edit: To Mick's point, the wheels being tucked in does help it a lot even with the large wheel openings.
