    My 2 H.A.M.B. friendly cars are both stick shift with multiple carburetors.
    They are also colors which look black some of the time or blue (the '32) or deep maroon (the '57) IMG_0431.JPG IMG_0260.JPG KK

    Pedal out of a plane that crashed in our yard is now a gas pedal, Finned Aluminum Oil filter cover is now a beverage holder, tail lights consist of Pontiac cups Studebaker stands and early Vette bullet lenses, duel quad scoops are vintage jet boat items....more IMG_20190713_184834574.jpg

  4. My 56 may be unique because its bright yellow. Nobody likes bright yellow but me and the other Mensa members...:D

    My truck may be unique because of the 348 with three deuces on it.

    What makes mine unique? Because I built them myself, Just as no two writers are the same ,I'm sure every builder has their own idiosyncrasies when it comes to building a Hot Rod . There for no two are the same.

    IMO Unique like beauty is in the eye of the individual. You can change the"Look" of a car with a wheel/tire change, the most reasonable, to paint, the most expensive. It's the details that make cars stand out. I always look at the unique cars, personally I have never owned anything wild/bazar/different, just what I like and the diversity is what makes our hobby so Great.

    One owner for 56 years is kind of unique.

  19. Since there is always someone that is going to say something negative about my car, then I must say that is what makes my car unique. Hey, I gotta remember that! Next time I hear "you should have done this......" I'll just respond "that is makes it unique".

  21. Don, I have always wanted a yellow car, My pal Chopper had a 1955 Chevy 2 door post in high school wearing a very similar shade of yellow, it was powered by a 327 and had a 4 speed transmission, the interior was straight out of a 1964 Impala SS, all black and it wore a set of black centered 5 spoke mags, that car still excites me when I think about it, for the time it was one of the nicest cars in the high school parking lot.

    My 55's paint job is unique. The primer is airtight bridge primer. The clearcoat is a clear that is used for anti-graffiti and stone chipping on the bottom of jet aircraft
