    Brian Bass' '49 coupe has a real badass vibe to it. Not a lot of shoeboxes out there with an attitude like this one.

    This is just me, but anything with painted or powered coated bumpers isn't a good thing.. For me it's just wrong

    Seriously?? Those are not powder coated or painted bumpers. Those are called rolled pans. The car was built between 1958 and 1962.

    And for me, cars who's rocker panels that sit on the ground and look like the suspension broke isn't a good thing, THAT is just wrong....just like basically stock bodied cars that claim to be customized..

    I dont care what its called or when it was around,its still shit.My opinion,get over it.As for my ride sitting on the rockers,it doesnt,it never has.And my ride is a mild custom,done with restraint.Not an over done,tasteless car that makes you wonder what the hell it started off as.

    Yeah, the Connecticut Yankee is shit...I think you'd be in the vast minority and it frankly makes you sound stupid....your statement was wrong, period. They are not bumpers.

    Oh yeah, it doesn't lay on the rockers, i think you could slide a credit card under there..just remember when this crap gets deleted, I didn't start the shit slinging, I just posted a pic of a car I thought warranted a spot in this thread.

    nah you started the shit slinging buddy,with a personal attack on my ride.I stated my opinion and you couldn't handle it.And I love the pic of my ride,thanks for that.Glad you like it.And that's salt rock masking the space between the rockers and the ground,so you posted the wrong pic to prove your non existent point...oh yeah I still think the yankee shoebox is hideous..after all it wont be me that gets the thread canned..you are the thread killer aren't you?

    Bro, it had nothing to do with couldn't handle it, you made an incorrect statement regarding painted bumpers, I educated you you by telling you they were called rolled pans. No harm no foul. I'm officially done with the 3rd grade shit slinging...

  14. I really like the less is more approach. This Convert photo I hyjacked off this sight. It's close to the Roger Cunningham 50 that I like so well. The Green 51 is my current almost daily driver.
    Again I took the less is more by just doing minor mods. I really wanted to section it during the body work stage but I also wanted to get it done. Maybe next time around. Not shure if this is the kind of insperation your looking for but they work for me.

    Yup. Lil Bat rules. I saw some build pictures with Bill Hines using 1/2 conduit for the fins. Incredible the way it turned out
     
  16. For what it's worth, your car is sick as fuck!

  18. That car is uglier than hell! Those roll pans are EXACTLY why it looks like hell...reguardless when it was built.

    Heres a few more to add to this righteous collection. :D
