    Nice car!. I prefer them with side trim, as they present a large, unbroken flat space. '53 Buick. or maybe even stock?

    NOT NOT NOT.
    EVERY one is cool in it's own way, and I sure like yours a lot..
    Being an old fart, love the flat black and pinstripes..
    Cool car man...good for you...

    YES! I haven't eaten there since Feb. 13th, but it's 145 miles from my house. Maybe a Hot Rod Hundred for Arkansas is in order!

    Always love to see someone with them with no sbc in it. Does it have overdrive? Yours is not crusty at all. Mine was a target before I found it. Bullet holes every where.

  11. Love the '49 decklid hinges.......much sportier than the 50 hinges. I'd keep the original 50 grille....I love the 49 and 50 grilles.

    Good eye on the decklid hinges i also like the 49 hinges better. I plan on keeping the 50 grill donno if ya can tell in the pics but ive swapped out the grill for one that has much better chrome than the one it had when i got it.

    It's looking pretty damn good as is. As others have stated, shiny paint, stance adjustment, wide whites andbperhaosxa little engine dress up then stick a fork in her and call it done!

    Looks nice, I would be tempted to drop it down a little bit in back for more of a speedboat stance yet drivable low. And something to break up the slab sided look.
     
  21. Good looking car,all the updates have been spot on. HRP

    Thanks man my buddy did the pin striping. My T bucket was the 3rd car he did and the 50 is the 4th. Been telling him it looks great and gets lots of comments but he still dont think hes good at it.

    My Crestliner was in Rogers. It didnt sell on ebay so I called him and made a deal This is only the second Crestliner I have ever seen. I put a Mustang gas tank in sideways to serve as the floor and still have to make a filler tube to the gas door.
