    i think the idea got to be that if a little is good, then a lot is better!

    I often wondered about that car when I first saw it featured in a magazine. I still wonder if FM thought what he was doing to it was cool or if he thought it actually looked good.

    I can imagine him saying "that looks good so lets add something else to it that will make it look better".

    Me too! The second exhaust above the rear window might be a bit much but other than that it's perfect!

    The Owner told Builder he really wanted portholes like a Buick. This is what he got back.

    What's crazy is that someone spent a lot of time, energy and money to build that hideous beast.

    Most customs are ugly.. I like a light dechrome job, with a slight lowering, with a nice set of vintage wheels or chrome reverse. Then make it handle like a new car and have a vintage engine with straight duals (NO X PIPE YUCK!!!) with glass packs or Porters is my kind of custom job..
     
  18. Talk about but ugly, that one should had been left stock.
