    Man that freakn A looks good...I have some of them old Boyd paints and was considering that Dusty Rose Pearl on a build that I did ,after a couple of test panels I just couldn't make up my mind....after seeing it on yours I like it..to me the combination of red,white and chrome 20210712_182814~2.jpg on that type and style of build looks so clean , sanitary and nice it really compliments the roadster body style ....but I feel if not done right , the same combination can really cheapen the look...
    You sir nailed it right on ..in my opinion.
    Just enough white to compliment the perfect amount of red and a good amount of chrome to bring it all together..
    Very nice
    White firewall and running boards would of been to much.

    That may have come from an Ulrich Custom Upholstery Kit for Model Cars. This page on my website has some info about model car club plaques that were being sold. That plaque is shown here ...

    Hey Rudestude, that's a nice bunch of tailfins ya got there! I once scored a '60 body and bumpers from a slot car racer - it had a tough life but it is in primer now and when we get out of the depths of the coldest and wettest winter we have had in twenty years, I would like to get some paint on it!

    Making progress on the '59 Ranchero mild custom. Here are couple recent shots after the Tamiya Candy Lime was shot over a Silver Leaf base coat. Upper body color is Tamiya Racing White. Since then it's received three coats of Tamiya TS-13 gloss clear.

    I really like the sedan delivery...reminds me of one of my favorite old Hot Rods from way back .....the so called "Gasser" look when it was "unique".
    Now days you put a straight axle under anything and I mean ...anything ...and they call it a gasser.
    Most of them not even having a clue to what a gasser is or was...
    And yes Im currently building a straight axle, actually its 4" drop, 50 Studebaker....and I hate when people call it a gasser....its my "70's style Street Freak Hot Rod" it's the way I wanted to build one the first time I saw a Bullet Nose Studebaker when I was 16...now at 60 Im finally getting around to it.
    Anyways cool car ...heres some pics of the one I remember. 16273749452262245070094082833421.jpg 16273750598438241316161199560916.jpg 16273748530142171354185478926623.jpg 1627374968355620858479495422420.jpg 16273749567981284989779467953165.jpg 16273750299348062340465844682860.jpg

    At least it wasn't a separate post for each picture....I have seen that on other threads...
    guys building up them "like" points trying to win that car...???...you get a car of your choice , a traditional Hot Rod or Custom, for the most points ...right?

    I don't mind pictures...I just don't like when guys post a bunch of pictures at one time and each picture is a separate post...takes to long to go through them...and alot of space.

    My thing is pick the best of the in-progress or finished and post those.
    And I'm not saying just one. Rudestude has a point, in a way, and this
    generally goes for who post multiple real car photos. When there's 8-10-12
    photos I can't like the one or two that catch my eye, leaving me to bypass
    the entire post.

    I enjoy seeing the models. On Saturday evening I start checking to see
    if anyone's posted new models. You guys do very nice work. I also like
    seeing Rudestude's acquisitions, even if they make me jealous. Show the
    modelers some respect, give 'em a like. There are some that don't bother.

    I'm happy that this one is finished after all this time and reasonably satisfied with the result. These pics don't do justice to the Candy Lime color and I may attempt more photos later against different backgrounds to try and capture the iridescent quality of the paint. If anyone else should decide to build a model from one of these bodies, contact me and I'll be happy to let you what I did, and, more importantly, should've done!

    20210804_234232~3.jpg 20210804_234132~2.jpg Well played quick......point made and received.....I " like" it.....I would "like" it more times if I could.
    Really like the White Buick, black rims and narrow WW's very Kool.
    I cleaned and touched up the 59 "Tiger" Buick a little...thought I would just touch up the black in a few spots where it was flaking off......each time I would feather the edges a little , more paint would come off...after chasing the continuous flaking edge about 80% of the car got painted with lacquer and a brush....finally said to hell with it and rubbed it out gave it a little wax called it good.

    Thanks. And thanks for the comment on the Buick. I can remember when
    every guy's car didn't have mags, or even chrome reversed wheels. Clean
    black rims and clean narrow whitewalls with baby moons were the look
    of choice of many. Some guys ran full Corvette (with spinner) wheel covers,
    some daring guys gave the rears the two color drag racing look. Stock dog
    dish hubcaps, no matter what brand of car, were replaced with baby moons
    or just removed. Chrome spiders were out there but not that common, and
    No One was running four inch whitewalls. That would have looked damn
    silly on a red '65 Impala, which two friends each owned.

    It's funny how things
    catch on, making some think that giant ww's with mags
    were common, along with guys and gals being tatted up beyond belief, and
    every guy had a four inch pompadour and duck's ass haircut, looking like
    Sly Stallone, Perry King and Henry Winkler in "The Lords of Flatbush". I was
    born in 1950, got may first issue of HOT ROD at eight and never saw a girl
    in a poodle skirt.


    Looking at the '59 from the side it just hit me that I've never seen one that
    had the rear wheel openings opened up to match the front, full size or model
    car.

    Geez, who put a quarter in me this morning?

    Hell quick....I could drop quarters on you all day long....I like to here what you have to say and your views on things
    I find that they are usually very close to my thoughts on subjects.
    In high school one of my cars was a 62 Pontiac Bonneville 2dr ht. all white with a black painted on landau roof , silver blue intior with lots of chrome, I lowered it painted the wheels gloss black looked good, had a 63 421 with a single 4 bbl ,and auto trans ...it run strong...theguy that sold me the car had the tri-power for the 421 but he wouldn't let it go.
    One day at the local wrecking yard I found a set of original Moon disks paid $20 for them went home and asked my dad how you installed them he told me ...so over the week end I drilled and screwed them on car had a slight rake it looked good but it needed more so I got some 1/16 and 1/8 black pinstripping tape and gave the whole nose of the car a black pinstriped flame job...it looked great, I could always do pretty good flames, lots of practice on my pee-chee's, Monday drove the car to school.....people were asking "why do you have pizza pans on your wheels"... idiot's.
    By the end of the week two of the disks got booted in by someone....idiot's.
    This was in 1978/79....idiot's.

    20160327_173203~2.jpg 20160327_173232.jpg 20190708_222822~2.jpg I know what your saying on the image thing these days ..I wasn't around in the 50's but even in the 60's 70's and up I don't remember seeing the look they got going now
    maybe some in the 60's in Southern California and into Mexico.
    But its like the Harley biker thing was a few years back...if you got a Harley you had to dress full leathers let your hair grow out into a tail , boots , bandana on and on.
    to each there own.
    Myself I just like it simple and cool....if no one likes it...I don't care.
    Here's a couple shots of my dad with his look and his hot rod....59/60

    The pics of your dad and his ride are treasures. Your pops has got a bit
    of the look going on in the first photo but not to some ridiculous extreme
    and I'd venture to say more fellows looked that way as opposed to the '50s
    caricatures we see at gatherings these days. The car is definitely right on.
    We lived on the southwest
    side of Chicago and didn't have, or really need,
    a car. The bus took my parents to work and took us to the zoo and the beach
    along Lake Michigan. The car didn't come until we moved out to the 'burbs.
    I'd love to have the '64 LeSabre my old man had. Dark blue 2 dr with a white
    top. Pop the wheel covers off, unhook the odometer and I was happening. I
    got my mitts on that car in '66 after getting my license. A little over a year
    later he let me buy a '66 Nova Sport Coupe 327/300 with a Powerglide. 17
    years old, a junior in high school and I had one of the really nice looking cars
    in our small town.

    Back to your Poncho for a moment. Some people just didn't get it and, yes,
    there were some idiots out there. When I bought an El Camino my buddies
    started moaning "How're we gonna go cruisin' in that?". Geez, maybe we gotta
    use your car once in a while!

    To continue the '59 Buick theme...

    With the '59 Ranchero done, I used some of the leftover energy to start the AMT '59 Buick I've always wanted to build. Spent more than a few hours getting the wheelbase adjusted and the stance nice and low, with the tiniest hint of a rake. Rolling stock are tires from the Revell/Monogram '59 Cadillac on '53 Buick Skylark wires from Modelhaus.

  29. So here’s the story… my dad built these two Hubley Duesenbergs in the late 70’s as a gift to my grandfather. These two cars sat on my grandparents’ mantle for over 40 years. My dad passed away of cancer 15 years ago. My grandpa passed away 4 years ago, and these Duesenbergs came to me. Needless to say they mean a lot to me. Recently they crashed to the ground and were damaged. I have been restoring them with donor kits. I was able also to re glue the custom acrylic case my dad made for them. I finished the phaeton and am working on the town car.

    Look good. Hope the repairs go well.

    I built the one on the left as a kid too.
