    I've seen this little shoebox Ford at several local shows and thought you might enjoy a pic. Sorry I didn't tak any other shots. I'll try to remedy that later this summer. FB_IMG_1564365453283.jpeg

    There have been some awesome cars in this thread, and, if you all don't mind, I'm gonna be in love with this one for a little while longer.

    (I already posted this over on the Kustom Blues... thread, but it fits here, too!)

    1952 Studebaker Starliner hardtop. I came across these pics on Facebook. It apparently has some Mercury trim and taillights mixed in with some '55 Ford trim. I can't tell if the basket handle trim on the roof is cosmetic only, or if it has a targa-style roof. I've never seen this one before, and wish I knew more about it...especially if it survives.

    To me, it's an eye catcher. Dare to be different.

    As for '58 Fords...For me, Johnny Taylor cinched the "Love it..." part of the equation decades ago.
    Not radical, but a bit more than "Mild".
    How 'bout those perfect fins?

    The side trim features some 800 chrome bullets. (The more obvious stuff, you can find for yourself. ;))
