Thought you'd appreciate this...
Yes it is ! it is called Kustom Weekend, Last year I made a video of all the madness that went on.
Here's the link, hope you enjoy it.
Great video, thanks! Some cool rides there.
That looks good.
Keep it up.
Hadn't seen your thread before today.
Caught my eye 'cause I have a '53 Chrysler 2dr hardtop project.
You're gettin' there! Good job.
I'll be back.
Niceee, that must be a hemi right? post some photos !
Plymo is out for some short cruises this weekend.
It's looking better all the time! Nice Dodge, Plymouth.
Was a Hemi.
Previous owner pulled the 331 and trans before I bought it. I'll probably put a 440 in mine...maybe a 454.
Hardtops are stylish. Not real common to have ones as old as yours and mine.
Here's my recent thread if you're interested.
Good luck with yours!
How 'bout some spray bomb scallops, for the party?
I was thinking about that, I wanted to do something vintage like it was done in the 50s and this one I like. Tell me your thoughts about numbers and words.
^^^^^^^^That is a terrific car for inspiration! Build yours as much like that as is feasible and it would be a special attraction at every showing. I just love the ‘tribute cars’ to the Carerra Pan America races from the ‘50s.
Started bending driver's side metal sheet and practising the scallops.
Now you're speaking my language! On a street car, I like seeing something that enhanses the cars lines; be it subtle, as you have shown, or not.
Do you know any sign painters? Pinstriped edges are not easy, but they do make the the paint POP; be it scallops, panels or flames.
P.S. Watson frequently finished his work with Gold, Black, or White lines.
I have already search for a painter but I couldn't find anyone, the pinstripped cars in my country are done by their owners... I might as well do the same
Yes! Do not be afraid, we learn from our mistakes.
I think I can scallop the car for next weekend event. About pinstrippin I don't know, seems challenging but it sure looks good. I'll just keep it simple and have fun with the car.
it is a 120km trip on the nicest roads of the country, nothing can go wrong I guess. I'll send photos before leaving.
Looking forward to your roadtrip/event pics. Have fun!
Hey, a skid pad!
If you can read spanish, Norman Reedus is going to be riding his bike to punta del este for the meeting tomorrow ! hopefully you will see it in his tv show.
Very enjoyable trip in the plymo ! still got things to improve but he did it with minor issues like a puncture and a gas leak. Photos of friend cars too. Pontiac sbc nitro and the duster.
almost forgot, this is the video I made for the Punta del Este event. Enjoy it!
That looks like a good place to have a tire dealership!
Great video, thanks! Looks like a fun time!
Been a while not posting, nor spending money on the car but gas. Old flattie is fun! winter is knocking at the door here, so it's very likely I get some time to work on the car in the few next months. My friend of the Duster 72 is giving me those bf tires 245/50/15 for the rear, does anybody think it's possible to run those without modifying much? Planning to use wider wheels (probably the stock ones) 8" maybe or is it too much ?
