great scallop job, perfect accent to the body lines

The scallops and pinstriping were done by Pete "HOT DOG" Filan. I purshased the car after selling my 50 Fleetline this last summer. It's a 15 year old school build from the Chicago area. 1951 was the first year of the hardtop for Ford. It's powered by a 1959 283, with a 327 cam, 3 duces, a combination of 49 & 50 Ford side stainless, 49 Plymonth bumpers, 49 Chevy license plate guards, Maverick rear end, Old's Fiesta hupcaps with extra flippers and the bullet and working Unity spots. 50's Customs and Tuck and Roll are BACK!

the most far out cool and ridiculous stuff I came across at SEMA

Hi Patrol 4x4'ers!  This is just one of 8700 galleries of things I've posted, I hope you'll check out some of the rest. I recommend the humorous stuff most, http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/search/label/humor but I have about 1000 catagories and you might be more interested in something else specific.

Far out ridiculous rims... no self respecting Charger or Dukes fan is going to buy these Forgiato rims that badly mimic the Tornado rims
Most ridiculous vehicle to use low profiles, and thousands of dollars of airbrushing.

Most ridiculous place to put a gold club bag

I doubt the below is true. Too coincidental, and I stopped believing everything I was told many years ago, especially when it comes to advertising. I can believe it rolled down a 300 foot dune, but I doubt there was anyone in it, especially just a day before it needed to be the prize winnign advertisement for this safety roll cage


Wow this would be a lot of fun

way cool gerry can mod... this is just bitchin  http://www.rampageproducts.com/trailcan.html
