For my first thread, I thought I'd ask "What were customizers building in the late fifties?" I'm in the very early stages of planning a build in that style, and I want to know what my contemporaries would have been building if I'd have been alive back then (I'm a GenX-er). Keep in mind that these radical customs don't have to be based on 1950's-model cars and trucks. In fact, my build will likely be based on a '47-'49 Studebaker business coupe. For that reason, I'm particularly interested in builds that might be based on vehicles manufactured in the late '40s. So, do your best, ladies and gentlemen. Post your favorite pictures of RADICAL CUSTOMS THAT WERE BUILT IN THE LATE 50's!
