Of course we would like more!!! Actually, we never got to see the first ones you posted.
Some great stuff from Japan...
Pics stolen from somewhere else on here,like many others before.
So many great touches on that Merc...I especially love the treatment on the hood, but maybe that's 'cause I watched him do it
Rusk originaly posted pics of our car so ill show some more
one of my favs
not from lately but still on the top of my list
1955 Buick from Wichita Ks
Beautiful car! Too bad the owner's a pompas ASS! Just try to talk to him at a show. He's full of himself.
Just for the record, I'm the guy who took the original photo, which you so mercilessly cropped...I forgive you.
The story is, these were taken at the South Austin Speed Shop before the Garage Magazine party.
I got there early and there were only a few people in the shop.
The sun was still out and the car was out in the open where I could shoot it.
Later, the car was moved up near a wall and of course the place filled up with 400-500 people.
Thank you G Griffin!
Thanks for having mercy on me good lord ! To my "defense",the pic you're talking about was already posted exactly like that on page 2 of this post.I just pumped it up for everybody to enjoy,the bigger the better.BUT I mercilessly cropped many other pics before,I gotta admit I always do it,exactly for the same reason,full screen pics for maximum viewing pleasure.Signed : The lucky motherfucker. ( Btw,I'm using the simple text box and can't insert smileys here ! )
AND THANKS A TON FOR THE OTHER PICS !
I went back and saw that tiny pic.
You did a helluva job blowing it up.
This is my all-time favorite thread!
I Love all of these Kustoms,Here's mine A 58 Plymouth with 57 Desoto Fins
would it be wrong for me to add my own car to this thread,,is that vain???
,,sorry,,its just a work in progress,,,but i am so proud!,,
Timeless stuff,cool car. (oops...I dit it again...)
Sam,you definitely have a reason to be proud ! That Chevy is very welcome here.
thanks FrenZ,,,if things go well,,i have a bunch more planned for it,,,,
Sorry to dredge this up, but I found this pic while on google surfing for a totally unrelated image and said, "DAMN." Anyone know any more about it ... maybe a front or profile shot?
That purple Zephyr is Terry Cook's "Scrape". Do a search for more pics!
Thanks for the tip.
go to Decorides.com. It is in the Petersen Museum now. I believe he sold it and now sells replicas and kits based off the original.
I posted this a while ago, but yanked it out of fear the owner hadn't seen it yet. Isn't Donn Lowe's work just amazing?
love this thread!
Anyone know what type of hub-caps those are?
Soon, very soon.....
no skrits on my cars
Sorry, I haven't had time to work more on my '40 for this year, but now I
bought lots of vintage speed parts for the '46 flathead and have some plans
to tear the car apart and finish it finally. Yes, I know I have the 1941 Cadillac
too, ha ha...

Oh men,the description has a couple of hidden jewels whe you realize that this was Lance Bass...
"Grapevine was expertly chopped, channelled, nosed, decked, shaved, frenched, skirted, and pancaked."Sounds like everything Lance has gone through in the last few years..
"Comprising the best of both worlds"..Ummmm,yeah...
"this Kustom is a true chick magnet --and the full console hides trunk release and A/C controls."Chick magnet?Thought this was Lance's car??Trunk release,hahahah,and does A/C stand for ass clench??
"Naturally, the lower you go, the slower you go. For normal operation, you might desire to get it up . . ."I'll let this one speak for itself..
Seriously though,if it didn't have the flames or the N'SYNC script on the back window,that car would be damn perfect..
I found a photo of this wild 1951 Mercury somewhere online... some time ago. I can even remember where I found it. Its far from the traditional customs I like so much. But this unfinished project sure got my attention. A very nice hard-top chop ala Hirohata Merc but with slanted A-pillars. A very wild new grille opening with stock looking but home made grille.. No front bumpers and what looks like molded in 1937 Ford headlights (not sure if that is the best headlight treatment for this custom though) and a super wild paintjob... that could as well be created by Larry Watson in the late 50's.
Does anybody have any moe photos or info on this one? if so please post them.
Your '40 is absolutely gorgeous!!
The color is very close to what I'll be painting my '37 hopefully this winter, and you've given me a lot of inspiration.
Do you have any interior shots you can share?
