Beautiful car too.
thanks buddy.. hope to get shiny paint like YOU soon! come find me at mooneyes, say hi
Here is my 49, she is a rough start. This next summer she will be better.
this is mine finally back on the road
My '50 convert the day my parents pulled it from a farmers field near Smithfalls Ont. in 1972, 4 months before I arrived! Second pic is from Oct. of this year when Dad passed the car down to me...
My '51, bought new by my Great Uncle in June 1951. Dad owned it for 45 years, and I am on my third year with it. Mostly original, but repainted twice (same colour) and a Hampton Coach interior. First pic is me in 1976 on my first day of school. I love this shot because of the Zehrs bag! I've worked for them for 21 years now...and always tell my Mom that I should have gone straight to work this day! Second pic is the '51 today...
looks more like this
Any more pics of this beauty?!
Here's a picture of our '50 Fleetline. I have lots of plans for it but just going to lower it for this year and collect parts for it.
Nice '50 spiffy!
The '49 is ready for some nice weather...
This is one MENTAL kustom man, can't wait to see how it turns out. What rear bumper did you use, that a Caddy bummper?
I like all the subtle modifications on this one. Sometimes less is more.
God DAMN thats clean!!
My 53 210:
I had it out earlier this year. It had been sitting since 1971. I got it running and took it out for a short spin. I traded the set of white walls to my friend in exchange for delivering it to my house.
Here's a picture of my '51 Chevy wagon at home in the California desert.

Here is my old wagon
Update on mine. Just got it back from LG Kustoms in edmonton where it had 52 merc headlight rings frenched in, the gas door filled and filler relocated and then I had this crazy idea of using 55 Chev tail lights upside down. Lee made it happen by extending the quarters a couple inches I think it looks pretty cool!
How are you? When you going to join the group man, the '53 looks pretty tight,
you know your just a click away.
I hope to see you there.
