    Tom Hanson didn't like the fender welt painted the color of the car. And I don't blame him a bit.

      This one is my favorite '52, belongs to Gary Grant from the Karel Staple chapter in Sacramento





      And sweet little convertible belonging to KS Member Bob Bryant



      And one more taken at the 2009 PSW Zone meet, not sure who has this one.

              One from eBay recently. I would like to have one like this.

                How about this nice pair from Glendale. The one on the right belongs to Karel Staple Chapter member Lou Van Anne of Stockton. IIRC, he got it from a little old lady in San Francisco that only drove it to church on sundays.

                  I nearly purchased that gorgeous car off Tom at the Las Vegas Meet in 1989 & I agree with you about those rear fender welts.

                    Those are some beautiful 52s I was just admiring those 52 Hardtops and someone slipped in that black LandCruiser. What a beautiful car that was.
                    I fell in love with those 52 Hardtops back in the early 70s when the Pate swap meet was south of Fort Worth, a guy showed up in a two tone green one and it was love at first site.

                      'You guys do realize that the pictured 1952 Commander State Convertible is the exact color combination of the 1952 Indianapolis 500 Pace Car, right? And a pretty one it is, as have been all the cars in this thread. The black Land Cruiser is especially stunning. Nice topic. BP

                            Hi

                            I like the somewhat busy grille of the '52's. It surprise me how the car looks without the grillework, though. If someone wants to do a custom, a little trim that emphasizes the sweep under would look good, note the grillework of the customized convertible.

                            Is it possible to mount the taillights upside down? I seem to recall seeing a '52 in a junkyard years ago that had the taillights so mounted. The car had other mild 'custom' changes as well.

                              Ooooo, some nice cars in here (and neat to see the 2R also!). Thanks for the pix. Keep 'em coming. I saw another '52 today, sort of, in an antique market...a 1:24 friction dealer promo model in superb condition. Were I drowning in money I'd have bought it on the spot, pricey though it was.

                                My date of purchase pic and my current never to be finished pic.

                                Purchased on March 3, 06. People ask me when I'm going to paint it.
                                Right now I kind of like the paint, but I'm sure down the road I will get
