    For me, I like 55-56 Pontiacs, except for the front end. The grille and bumpers are too much.
    57 Fords-love 'em, except for the "bug-eye" headlights.

    53/6 f-100s except for the too heavy nose, front wheels and wheel wells look like they could be moved about 4 to 5 inches forward.

  4. Really like the 49-50 Ford except the roof line. The coupe is the only one proportioned right.

    I really like an old Ford T or A highboy roadster with an old overhead V8, 6x2, stick-shift, tuck-n-roll...
    ...'cept for, I just don't like that I don't have one.

    Man, I just like too much stuff. I like Cockshutt pulling tractors with Big Block Chevys in them, except they're tractors.

    If all '55 Chevies had the Nomad wheel wells it would have saved a lot of cutting. :)

    Absolutely love a '37/'38 Chevy coupe.
    But in stock configuration, the rear wheels always seem just a tad too far forward.
    Same with some other cars too.
    But that can be fixed.

    "Really like the 49-50 Ford except the roof line. The coupe is the only one proportioned right." 100% right!
    The coupes look like they're going 100 MPH. The tudors and convertibles look like Grammaw just parked them behind the bingo parlor.
    I've found I like '32 Fords...they actually look pretty good if you ditch the cowl lights and spare tire.

    I really like Torinos except for the same reason. LOL

    I never really thought about it. I seldom own anything stock.

    '47 Stude pickups, except for the mixed-up lines of rear fenders, bed misalignment, and total side profile. (look like someone just stacked everything, and forgot to adjust things before bolting them down!)
    Look WILD chopped...
