    Cant believe we are almost through April, currently doing final cleaning and display loading for the Medford Rod and Custom show next weekend. First time ever attending this show, but have heard alot of good things about it. So we are looking forward to a fun event. If anyone on here is attending, say hello! I'm sure Ill be spending most of the weekend at the show itself.

    Such good pics! They emphasize details I had not noticed before, such as the splash pan(s).
    But it is really hard to take in all the details of such a complete custom, from photos alone.
    You and your Gramps deserve a ton of credit, for creating (him) and maintaining (the two of you) a true custom treasure that spans more than half a century (and counting!).

    Thank you for the kind words, both my grandfather and I are just happy to be able to enjoy getting to show this car all around the west coast and hopefully in the future go east with it. We never really imagined getting the car back in the family after my grandfather sold it in 1990.

    Yeah those splash pans like to hide until a speed bump pops up, lol

  9. Love this car. It just nails it. I would like to make one suggestion as I noticed you have an SP license plate. My Vette had SP's when I got it. I hated the bright yellow on a black car. You can run the year of manufacture plates. The 55 to 59 YOM plates are blue. The early ones are embossed with "56" in the corner where mine has the "58" tag. 1955-59 have slots and holes for the various year tags. The date shown on the plate is the expiration date so my plate was issued a month before the car was born but DMV didn't catch it or doesn't care. If you don't have a date in the right corner then you get the modern small orange lifetime special interest sticker. I think it's $11 to switch plates.

    I would agree with you on that. That plate has been one of the only real differences of opinion my grandfather and I have had when restoring the car. He wants to keep the plates because they are the ones he put on the car when he owned it the first time, so the compromise was the heavy smoked cover.

    The DMV says its $11 but its not. I did the same thing with my O/T 68 Camaro. I swapped original plates onto the car as it had normal tree plates and it was over $100 bucks by the time I walked out as they then make you re-register the plates to the car.
     
  11. Can't argue with "history"

    You have to already have collector or SP plates to get the $11 swap.

    58379030_3055062777840789_6568236908168609792_o.jpg Well another car show is in the books. The Medford Rod and Custom show was a first for us and it was a fun weekend. Weather cooperated for set up and tear down and Taboo came home with a sponsor award and a first in class. 57821721_3055062481174152_6329883111052017664_o.jpg

    It was a smaller indoor show, but had a very high count of well built cars, little to no filler cars. Only thing that was a challenge was keeping stuff clean as the main hall we were in is a rodeo arena so we were on a dirt floor that was very uneven. They just hard-packed the dirt and covered it with a tarp.

    Finally had a chance to edit photos I took of Taboo. I am not a professional photographer by any means, but tried to act like one taking these photos.
