    Just the type of Kustom that holds the factory styling, but cleans it up, enhancing and improving the original designers classic coupe lines. Nice detail on the front vents next to the grill. Great car to bring back an view again.

    image.jpg This is my friend Brian Nieri's 1940 "LowSalle"... Very much along the lines of the one in the article, a beautifully done, tasteful piece of art for sure... May I add its for sale...

    Cool post!

    Reminded me of another Bay Area based '40 LaSalle Coupe ... Brian (@PhatCaddy) Nieri's "LOW SALL":

    What great looking automobile. I am not usually a fan of fender skirts but they work incredibly well in this case.

    The LaSalle is a beautiful car. I've always thought they were the best looking In the GM stable

    I keep dreaming of working that LaSalle grill into the front of my '39. I just think it's not vertical enough to pull it off and make it look good.
