    Its still alive and well, I think it was in primer but not 100% certain on that . There was a thread a while back on historical Canadian customs and there were some really cool pics of it over the years.

    so hard to choose! my all time is the saint vasquez convert.
    but a very close second is this hambers sedan...I hope to replicate someday.

    My vote goes to the Valencia Chevy too, there is a lot of other cool chevys to like the dan landon 49 and carl abajian's 49, but I have been in love with the Jesus' chevy since the first time I saw it on print.

    Admittedly, I have way too many "favorites", but the Jesus Valencia Coupe is at the top of the list.

    Does anyone one know where it is now?

    Yup, I did a search - here's the thread: http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/showthread.php?t=47079&highlight=canadian+customs
    Great photos in there - thanks for passing that info along. I should've known a car like that would turn up here somewhere..
    That is a neat shot, especially in color. Thanks for posting!

    Great to hear that a car of that caliber is still being cared for - and driven - today. If I ever win the lottery, I think I might have to look him up!! ;)

    That's slick
     
  27. I think my 50 is my favorite by far, but then again, It's still being built and I am a lil biased. The black & green 53 is a close second and I have a pic of it readily available. I also tossed in a few others I really find inspiring.

    Lucky 444's '51 that we got to tour Honolulu in last week. That's my new favorite. Killer ride with that 6 banger singing out the back.

    That thing needs a rear window very badly. It looks hideous!

    Anybody remember the article that Ganahl did about the three Chebbies he had a hand in? Was it in TRJ or R&C? What issue?
