    Hey guys,
    I'm looking for Pink/Lavender/Purple/Lilac/Magenta Customs.
    Preferably built to late 50's style.
    I have an archive of images already, but wanted to put the feelers out and see if i had missed any.
    This is inspiration for my own mild custom 53 chev HT.

    If anyone has any more photos of the pink 40, please share! Thats a huge influence so far.

    There are a lot of great ones out there. Some of these are more '60s than '50s, and some are more purple than pink-ish, but here a few that jump to mind...

  3. These pics are from my folder entitled: "I'm gonna build a cool Kustom for my wife someday."
    • The Riviera is Bill Ganahl's (South City R&C).
    • The '57 4-door & Corvair are stockish Chevy colors.

    The search term "mauve" can bring up additional examples.

    Not that I've been looking at pink cars or anything...

    I have always loved the pink/purple hues on customs. Every time I have said I'm painting something pink, everybody laughs & tells me I'm stupid & it'll look like ass. But, every time I have, they had to say they were wrong. I think when you say "pink," everybody assumes it's Pepto-Bismol, and "purple" is always plumb crazy. There's so many shades of colors, that people just never think of.

  23. A little Pinkish… and a little bit of everything. 71C73F69-4294-46D4-9C54-5432C887F154.jpeg 61E90ED1-47D0-422B-971C-D75F79D8E040.jpeg
     
  24. TinWolf, Joe Moreno car in the 90's, burnt in late 90's, where is it now? I'm wondering if all those Strombergs attributed to the fire. I saw the car in person when it debuted at the Oakland Roadster show, it was beautiful. Never saw it run, and not sure it did run. I don't know if it was repaired after the fire, or how bad the fire was.
