    damn it to hell that looks good.
     
  3. Looks good from here...I'd pull the bumper in a little, it may just be the angle though.

    They aren't my favorite. But thats just my opinion.

    I like smoother, deeper hub caps.

    Love them and love your 39
     
  13. Bullshit. That size whitewall and tire rake and stance with full wheel covers would have been in style in So Cal in '58-'59. The wheel covers probably have been Olds spinners, but those sure look good.

    Are they '56 Ford caps, Reddy?

    Gotta disagree with you there man. A lot of that rake is the angle of the pic and the driveway tilt. IMO it looks great...different than all those w/ caps and rings.

    It looks good, but a set of 53 caddy caps would look smoother, the stance gives a late 5os early 60svibe its all about aesthetics and flow if your building a kustom, attitude and stance
    building a hot rod!
