  2. I wondered how your car was coming along Bonez. Looks really good - that´s a great idea for a headlight treatment!

    Actually thats how i found it, butr thanx James.
    It used to have only black mesh for a grille, so i temporarley put a stock one on, after cuttin the headlight "trim", meanwhile im workin on this vvv.
    Square tubing and 70s GM rectangular headlights, 2 per side. Pure 70s...im happy :D and proud.

    Further customization is in the works for this one though, will be changing out the quarter panels and side trim for something much more custom.

    This is a fun game I have played before.

    I found this Lincoln for $500 next to the boat dock at Lake Eufaula.

    I had a set of Roadster wheels and white walls back home that came off of a "Excacliber". It seemed fitting at the time :D.

    My other ugly car was a 1971 Pontiac Grandville that I picked up for $800.

    [​IMG]


    Craigslist and $250 wire wheels later :D

    Both of those ugly suckers were a blast. I am always on the look out for something ugly and cheap. :cool:

    Yes..... but those headlight buckets are Amazing and have TONS of potential on other customs....
