    "There were two Angels left at Eden, to prevent our going back."

    There are just so many bitchin' customs out there now. It's a much different world than the one we try to recreate.
    (Not complaining! The beat goes on.) And if you think we're not trying to recreate an era, what's with the cut-off line? 'Twas a time, "Custom", and "Period Correct" were contradictions in terms!

    Two beautiful "Period Correct" Customs. (Me like!) Pre-1964, they would be cover-cars.
    Now, I dredge them from the "For Sale" sites, to keep things fresh.

    In my lifetime. there came one brief, historic moment when there were more people ALIVE than dead!
    (You've all heard of the "Baby Boom", once commonly referred to as 'The Population Explosion".)
    Wrap your head around that, and maybe you can grasp today's Custom scene, compared to what it once used to be.

    This is kool, I hadn't seen this one before......

    Very Kool! I owned some shorty pipes at one time, if they were rippled I'd still own them.

    I was thinking the same thing, I've seen a lot of pictures before but none in color....
