    Yes I've noticed a lot that old school ideas get forgotten about when it comes to inside a lot of newly build customs. They often emulate new modern cars. And have new modern looking gauges.

  10. An awful lot of them have interiors that look like they were lifted straight from a new luxury car... generally too much 'detail' rather than styling for a 'trad' appearing interior.

  11. At some point the members here might understand that 90% of the people out there building cars are not building them to meet this boards standards.... then again probably not.

  13. I won't deny that. But if the owner is claiming traditional status, these interiors are pretty jarring. And customs aren't the only offenders, you see this in a lot of high-end quasi-traditional rods too.

    Don't get the idea that I'm a purist and buy into the 'commonality' argument of what is traditional, I'm not that hard-core. I do firmly believe that being traditional doesn't mean you have to stifle your imagination. But a traditional look does require certain design elements while blocking others.
