Long lost brother of Japan's Next Movie
Bonez, his name was Tony Pastor
Nads... close John Pastor
Yep, John Pastor. Thanx guys, i knew you'd chime in. hard to remember all the names without cross referencing all the time.
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.
Finally almost back together.
Loving' the rake, not so much the wheel covers.
Dirt Diggler, they kind of look like tru rays?
ah yes, you are correct, they have a lip to them.
i got this galaxie confused with this one.
So what did John Pastor's car start out as?
I want to know the same thing!
Thats a British Ford Capri. Not sure on the year thou.
And yeah, as fuzzy as that Galaxie piture is they look like Clasics or Tru Rays.
Whilst on the Brit lowrider trip, how about these:
Chris Martin?? Raspberry Tart
<OMilton Holman 1958 Chevy</O
<OAndy Saunders AUDI I installed the Hydros, so it's the best!!</O
<OClive Miles, Change of Heart</O
<OAndy Saunders 1947 Pontiac, Oh yes I did the hydros on that as well, very nice car.</O
It's totally stock, well cept for a shave and a few other bits and bobs, I have a mild custom one, they were built between 1961-64, mine's a 63.
The day it won 2nd place Lowrider, first place loser.
Here's Tony Coe's Capri.
Thanks Bonez. Only 1485 were imported to the US and only 12 are thought to exist today.
This ´56 Chevy looked so cool I had to give the photo some love to show the paint better.
Bad ass car!
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
