I miss those long Blvd's, cruising at night.
The idea of L.A is amazing, the reality [ for me ] was really hard.

Man seeing my car is off topic here I just went to the Los Boulevards site. WOW. If this is what your into and have a O.T. car like mine thats were you need to check out. I love the HAMB for the hot rod stuff and traditional kustom history dont get me wrong.

word homie, hard to beat 13" rockets or cragars on a pinto or VW ...
always wanted to build on... pinto WAGON ... :0)
The late Manuel Arteche' from Woodland, CA, built the '61 Buick that I own. THE INVICTA was built with hydraulics as a Custom/Lowrider.
It was not built as a "jumper/hopper"...but as a classy, smooth riding, road machine. Which it really is.
The car was a multiple-award Winner in California, and, when I showed it at the 2001 World Of Wheels here in St. Louis it took both Best In Class & Best Lowrider Awards...I showed it in honor of Manuel, so that his work & this personal Custom of his would not be forgotten.
R.I.P. Manuel, and thank you ! (Here's the link to the "Manuel Arteche Tribute Page" on the Hall Of Fame Legends Site: http://www.legends.thewwbc.net/gpage117.html )
I never cared much for that year Lincoln until now...I was wrong! That looks great.
Thanks Tom! Here's another angle:
Very cool indeed !

growing up in san jose in the 70's & 80's it seems like everybody had 13's & zenith's
Here is the truck i drove in the early 80's. Hard to tell but it had Supremes, I'm on the right.
The truck i drive now.
A friend had one of those at work, i forget the name of em.
The left hand is forward and pull back to brake, the right is the steering wheel. Very fast, i was shocked
