    A pic from the 80's?? More info on this car please. So cool. Love the bumper/grill combo. Does it have '58 Ford roof ribs?

    Also unique (for an un-chopped car) is the canted B-pillar.
    Titus' "Crimson Skull" is a legend; a depiction of the transitional, Heyday of customizing, when Ayala bodywork met Dean Jeffries brushwork at the Barris shop.
    Though I'm generally not a big fan of striping on early-style customs. this is another case where the lines actually enhance the profile of the car; separating the subtle two-tone paint, and effectively standing in for the absence of side-trim.
    The transition to flames (accentuating the port holes) is a defining element of the car, and perhaps my favorite feature.

    Here's a shot without the "bars".

    My wife asked "What is so interesting on the HAMB?
    I said" I don't know enuff words to respond."
    She Said "TRY !"

    I said ; HOT RODS, GIRLS, CUSTOMS, and Racers.
    That seemed to pacify her..

  17. Wow..never knew they were one and the same..I gotta say I like it a little more semi Kustom vs radical..the pic I posted the car looks perfect other than needing some wider whites and chrome reverse wheels

  29. And the "hatchback" was a later version of Dave Crook's car. I believe these photos are fairly current.
