Features Kustoms blues? I need to see some kustoms....

Discussion in 'Traditional Customs' started by straykatkustoms, Oct 6, 2014.

  1. Dug a little more and found some more great shots also from the HAMB. Courtesy of @realkustom51.
    Larry's Merc was the cat's ass! E

  2. Lots of changes @Sancho. Removed the third brake light and changed the grille. Removed teeth in hood scoops and changed the cool little chrome mirrors to the modern ones.
    If Larry did redo the car, it was the classic custom illness of going over the top and doing too much. The earlier version hit it out of the park in awesome custom style, while the second version is a point chasing trophy hunter. E
     
  3. I really like that last photo you posted without the striping down the side.
     
  4. Reverse "What Ever Happened To...." LOL
    "What Did This Sled Use To Look Like?"
     
  5. And I just noticed the "King of Mercs" 1989 in this photo:

    Thanx for the correction Sancho...I thot he was from the Springs since he always seemed to be out here hanging out with the Knights...and IF YOU were at the HRR& R, why didn't you come over and introduce yourself...??? You shot a pic of our Caddys...at least one of us was under the canopy most of the day...!!!

    Thought you may like to know that Old Time Garage is resurrecting this old custom:

    Not the same car. The red car I think is a 53 while bob moreira’s car is a 57. See the side coves?

    You just don't see many '38's.

  15. Doug Hall's AWESOME Buick--striped by Ed "Big Daddy" Roth and Larry Watson. I know it was done at a show for all to see. If I'm not mistaken it was at the Rat Fink Reunion in '99.
    Does anyone know if Mr. Hall still owns it? I know he has sold many of his customs in the last 10 years or so. E
