Man, I wanted to be Lee Pratt in the 80's as a teen living for the day my next Classic and Custom would come in the mail (and Scale Auto Enthusiast, but that's neither here nor there. LOL). His how to articles made it all look so simple and natural and all I wanted was a car I could start making cool like Lee was. I miss the 80's, really. The cars weren't as refined and "traditional" as we would define it today, but they were few and far between and you had to dig to find them, so it was like treasure when you saw one at a car show and even better when you got to travel to one of the few shows were there would be "lots" of them (more than 3), like Paso, the Mid Century Mercury show in Wisconsin, Hangin' Dice in Ft Smith or the Spectacular. Back then, for the most part, customs weren't something you stumbled upon on the internet or main stream media, you had to hunt them down, so pretty much everyone in that small circle "got it" and was as eat up with it as you were....I'm probably making up stats, but it wasn't 20% eat up and 80% "pass thru" guys that it's just what they are into at the moment and will be moving on to the next hip trend.
