    Well sadly, that IS something that has historicaly been associated with east coast customs for a long time, since the mid 50's, especialy on "mild" customs. Its true, historicaly, more radical customs in from the east coast were often done in bad taste, but lets remember this, the scene hit here later than it did in California. By the mid-latter part of the 50's, there were grotesque customs coming from every part of the country, not just the east coast. Take the Barris Grecian for example.


    But today, like you say, its a toss up. There are amazing designers all over the globe, and a whle lot more hacks equaly spread out as well.

    what the hell?

    you guys are all wrong,
    that thing is beauty

    I love it,
    the only thing wrong with any of those pictures is that the spare was just thrown in,
    it belongs on the rear mount, inclined to fit the flow of the rear deck

    am I all fucked up?
    I love that car!

    but,
    I must admit,
    my whole family is ugly
    and I love them too :)
