    I'm just going to comment quick- I LOVE this car, its color, its name, pretty much everything about it... and I love seeing photos of it on IG still in action. If you were to put this Kustom in a category... whatever that category is... its the same one that I want my Ranchero to be in when I'm done with it. Inspiration.

    Wow-great/tasteful tail light mods, and one of the best headlight mods too. And I love the single spear of trim. The B&W pics are fabulous. The rear 3/4 shot is the money. As was said, a radical kustom with restraint and taste. Not many of those around.

    I've always loved customs that have constant flow and perfect symmetry. This car epitomizes that very definition. I have always liked this car. Wish that I could afford it. Bill

    that is a great looking car. I have no "he should have done this or I would change that" for it.. saw it at Pleasanton a few years back. didn't know it had history at the time.

  6. I liked it better with it's original metalflake paint.... but it's still a great example of a early '60s custom.

    Fantastic! It looks like a 1/1 version of a vintage AMT, 3 in 1 kit.

    Boy Howdy Time flies, I took these photos at the 2009 Portland Roadster show.
    I saw the car years ago and it has always been a favorite of mine. 5-7-09021.jpg 5-7-09020.jpg 5-7-09022.jpg 5-7-09045.jpg 5-7-09096.jpg 5-7-09098.jpg 5-7-09099.jpg 5-7-09100.jpg

    Wouldn't change a thing saw this in a thread the other day...I thought it had just changed hands or perhaps it was a bttt.

    Whatever the reason it caught my eye in a good way.

    Just a noted observation...again not specifically a cry baby doll but this doll thing is not nessesarily a new thing. Looks a little Betty Boopish and hell if theres gotta be a doll make it a hot one...;)

    I have to believe that was the hula girl with the palm tree, coconut and pond with water in the display Stogy. No cry baby dolls in those days.
