  • I thought I recognized these wheel covers

    I was looking at this 53 Ford retro custom on eBay and took a second look at the wheel cover. It looked very familiar.

    Wow, I'd love to have that car.......once I took off the skirts, continental kit, sidepipes, and the funky bullet in the center of those Stude hub caps.<G>

        Yeah, then you'd have to RAISE it 3 inches so you could DRIVE it!

                I've gotta say, those may just be the best-looking non-factory skirts I've ever seen! Those look fantastic!

                    Too old? I remember these cars back in the early sixties. We used to call them 'La Bambas' and laugh our arses off at them. The kids would put lights in the wheelwells too. They were a joke forty years ago and they still are. It's especially funny watching them attempt steep driveway approaches and speedbumps.

                    My Mum used to say (whilst shaking her head at one of these), "It took the genius of Detroit thirty years working to make a car ride decently and morons a week to ruin it." I noticed she said the same thing about the extra high 4WDs of the 70's and 80's.

                    I like everything about this car except the idiot suspension and the pipes. The skirts are funky, but they work and look good.[8D] I'd hate to change a back tyre on this one though...[}]

                        Pretty cool, for a Ford!

                        Especially if it has a flattie with Smittys.
