That's Phil in the lavender hat pictured sitting behind his ragtop. Phil brought together a colorful band of kustom kulture folks in his Klassic Kruisers car club and they all always wore purple toned clothing at all of the shows they attended. Phil was the most colorful of the bunch and was always a major hit with the ladies as well. We could devote an entire thread here to the crazy stories I've heard and witnessed about him and his group of merry pranksters. My father built a chopped 392 Hemi powered shoebox Ford back in the early 80s and we roamed around a lot with the Purple People Eaters, as we called them, and I can recall more than a few tense moments between my parents due to poor alcohol induced actions my father took while hangin' out with the gang.
