    "I feel retarted askingthis. But what is this for? Please? Sounds cool. But not sure exactly what it is!"

    I didn't know what it was either. The picture almost looks like Kelly had on a stiletto heal. I Wikipedia'd it to find out.

    I'm sure Skipper will chime (hint hint) in on what it is and it's history. Just one more very cool detail.

    So what were these Bermuda Bells used for? To get a girl's attention, replacement for the horn?

    Dale Gillispie which is Muttley's father use to cruise in L.A. in the mid fifties in Garden Grove, Long Beach, Torrence, my home town of Downey and well all the cities, for fun and witnessed some great kustoms and cool shit. He personally told me that the Bermuda Bell was just a noise maker and attention getter and that was all. He said the same with the Wolf whistle you could pull the wolf whistle, ding the bell and honk the horn all at the same time and it sounded like a Kustom Orchestra. Must of been hell to pay at the drive in theaters? Thank you Dale for the History in L.A.such a great era.
     
  5. Good to see they got there, the phone call I got from them 3am Fresno time (8pm here) was hilarious!!

    Mind you Dean and Skip could be long lost brothers!

    Mark's been secretly working with a group of scientists overseas. Since he has so many cool projects yet to build, he decided to clone himself. The "copy" was ordered a little taller since the next car will be unchopped... I'm sorry Skip, I know I wasn't supposed to tell!

    I have searched as well, just saw 20 pages of different photoshoped color schemes haha.
    I really love this car, and being that I have a 51, I would love to see pics of all the small progress things and techs.
