    I'm guessing MGA MkII. The original lines are great, and the custom work only makes them better IMO.

  16. I always thought the '46 - '47 Nashes were pretty ugly, as well as the '51 - '52 Nash Statesman sedan.

    A 1941 - 1947 Oldsmobile front end is downright ugly, too.

    That "jailcell" grill on the Ford trucks - I agree, ugly! I've always wanted to put a pair of hands, wrapped around the outer bars, and stick a long nose out the center. Drive around a bit.

    Hey Mark,

    NOT ugly, but very kool!:D I can't deside which one I like more, & talk about factory kustoms?
    I sold off my '61 Fury, but still have my '62 Dart post. Most who grew up on GMs & Blue Ovals never got Exner's styling:(

    Correct and it also has a GM V6 in it.

    Nothing to do with me, just took the photos at the St.Paul World of Wheels last March.

    I really wanted a wagon after we had more kids, no we have a 56 9 passenger belair.

    I took the ranger to a swap meet last nov. All I got was nice car, for an Edsel. The first trade offer I had I took. It was for a 49 fleetline chevy. The car was kind of a terd, but it wasn't an edsel!

    I drove the edsel as a daily for 3 years. I didn't get it painted until about 4 months before I sold it.

    In fact we bought the chevy wagon while the sledsel was in the paint shop.

    I must admit,at a time in my life,I guess I thought most of these cars were ugly in genral but now I like them,a few of these I still think is a ugly body style but thats what makes them cool.
    (The 4 door 60 chev pictured is a car I really like)

    Ive always had a soft spot for these trucks. I remember an article in american rodder or custom rodder in the late 80s or early 90s about a guy that drove baja mexico in an old ford truck. I think he called it an ugly lizard. To this day if Im with my dad and we see one we will say hey theres an ugly lizard.

    I like the idea of this thread - once you get past the half empty glass full of piss. Let us see if there is life beyond a 1932 Ford juice.
