Only a little bigger. That's what is referred-to as "slightly gomezed" here in Texas.

Here ya go tubman. There is a fine line between a great custom car and a clown car. I don't think this car in the thread is a clown car. But I know nothing about the car.


A lot of custom cars from the 50'60s were improved on and really went down hill fast. Too much of a good thing goes wrong real fast.

This car is probably why I see cars with curb feelers and go why. Just because you ordered everything from the jc whitney catalog doesn't mean you should.

It's okay to stop trolling people for a second. So many guys/gals think they can customize a car. They are like a kid with a guitar thinking they will be successful and touring. Very few are. Very few are cars to remember.
