    Hey Bonez, do you know what kind of wheels are on this Galaxie? Are they Theunderbird Wires?

    yup, correct, I was mixing his first name up with Tony Coe, owner of the other legendary 70s built Capri.

    Thanks Bonez. Only 1485 were imported to the US and only 12 are thought to exist today.

    Hey there! Need more info on your past work. To be fair The Poncho is probably the only Saunders car i ever liked, maybe the Volvo too. The Audi is a giant POS! I mean, if it had some wheels/tires and even on stock paint could be fun, but that scheme..please!
    Is the 58 the one that was wgite and done about the same time as John Pastor's? I heard there was a debate between the 2 for who did it first.

    These are some cool ass picks.
    Question: how would you install the back system on say my car (54 Ford Cusomline) with lief springs? Would they make the lief crack? I can buy an entire setup from a friend for less than half the price of going to bags and I don't even have to get MII setup.

    Not traditional? I call BS on that. When I was a freshman in HS, (1961) these things were all over So.Cal. One of the coolest cars at our school was a '59 Buick lowrider...purple w/white interior and those little plastic purple and white knobs everywhere, dingle balls around the windows and about 2 inches off the ground, ww's with chrome wheels and spiders. Not traditional....pfffttt
