Customs The Hottest Kustoms Lately...

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by TheFrenZ, Jun 27, 2007.

  1. The key is leaving or adding the right stainless or chrome. I know opinions vary but to me the Bettancourt Merc is probably one of if not the smoothest best flowing 49-51 Merc ever built and honestly I think the side window and belt line trim would have ruined the perfect organic profile the Ayalas achieved.

    It was more a statement about your comment of any other window than the windshield as the Bettancourt Merc did have the windshiled stainless. I agree with the statement about windshiled stainless but think other windows can be pulled off with out the stainless trim. The comment about beltline trim was just made because it seems to always go hand in hand with talk of window trim.

    Again my point was that it is very rarely done well but it can be done if properly executed
     
  2. I have to agree, I really cant think of another car that pull's it off right now but the Bettencourt merc is just gorgeous.

    Saw this at the Rainbow Falls Run in Pe Ell, WA last year. No idea who owns or built it, just liked it a lot...

  7. Some of you need to remember it's not a competition to see who can post the most pics, quality has to be the main criteria.

    From another thread, that prolly many have seen, but then i thought this is about the greatest kustoms lateley so this fits the bill 100%.
    All the kustom or bomba Nash ive seen in the last coupla years are pretty bitchen, i like when odd brands get recognition.

    on a side note, that Jaguar custom few pages back was prett kool. W/ a few corrections and a color change could be real bad ass.

    The 2 Cadillacs I could find after i found the first one. Could have sworn that he was a builder but just a BIG pocket collector. Both are customs.

    I'm almost sure you don't ask that very interesting question to people that like your car, did you ? never see anybody asking that pertinent question to Rikster ? So now we need a car to have a point of view ? :confused:

    By the way, i love your car Bro, and i like the maroon one too, but it seems I can't give my two cent ! Thank for not pointing the fact that i'm a fuckin French because most of the time when i give my opinion that's all i had for response :D
     

  24. I suppose you are aware that there is already a long running customs thread which covers the past, that's why this one was started in the first place.

    And for real early/early style there's the taildraggers thread.
