heyy, has anybody fitted dagmars to a stlyeline? any pics
This is all I could find.
And, of course, the bodacious tata's on VooDoo Larry's '53.
There is a HAMB'er with a ('53?) Chevy converted into a PU, that has Dagmars.
I believe he is Scandanavian. If I can find a pic/link, I'll pass it on.
thanx bud, that green cars wicked ,
Out, for me.
What is that great looking bumper?
looks like a 52/53 Desoto bumper to me.
2nd photo looks best. Grind the contour to make them straight.
slight change of plan, ijust spent the day out in the rain to get them fitted for a show tomoz, i thought the bumper looked too good to spoil, so went for grille instead
It seems that a American actress from the 50's by the name of Dagmar helped inspire customers and thus the Dagmars were born. HRP
Oh, forbid me to be thunk as a 'dickhead'...but IF you were to have stuck those tits on a Desoto bumper, I'd most certainly have posted a rude comment.
I think your nice grille loses in the exchange.
I can't see from the pics how deep the bullets are, but could they be moved to center under ends of the upper grille bar (by trimming it to accommodate) while adding back a couple of teeth? (This might look better if the black paint were stripped, or perhaps painted red.)
The turn signal lights would of course need relocating.
Funny. When I first saw your plans to put them on the bumper, my first thought was: they'd look much better up higher, as part of the grille. But I didn't say so, because I didn't want to be that dickhead with stupid comments.
Now you're cooking!!!
And the red surround looks great!
themoose did this Photoshop, with lower bar also in red, and silver grille bar (between the teeth). A little more refined look, but both are good.
What d'ya think?
There is an area along the (Imjin?) river at 37.986510 / 126.852967 that would be Dagmar's left breast. Back away a bit and you'll see the right. This is a well-known US Army training area (at least it was in the early 70s) about 3 klicks South of the DMZ. It was called "Dagmar" during the 50s "police action" because it referenced something that most US military map readers would understand, but the enemy would not.
