Projects My first traditional custom

Discussion in 'Traditional Customs' started by, Apr 22, 2021.

  1. I often get asked, "How did you learn......about cars?" I have always had a huge interest in cars, especially mild customs. This is the car that I learned the most. I used it as a canvas to express what I thought a traditional custom should be. I learned the most and the fastest on this project. Please enjoy my short story of my journey taking this car from a field car to an award winning cruiser. It also has the 235 in it

    I saw your car when I bought that gas tank from you and was very impressed with how tidy and well thought out your car is in every way. You do very nice work!

    If my memory serves me right - it has to do with activity count.

    I normally don't like the 51or 52 because of the rear fenders but you have made the car even appealing to me so good job.
  21. Thank you!, I always thought they looked "stubby" I think by lengthening it balances the back end a little bit more

    Thanks for the video. Excellent car and equally excellent past owner. I never would've sold it if it had been mine.

  25. Thank you! I appreciate it! Unfortunately the sale was driven by a life change I needed to make, but the money went into another one of my projects!
