These cars are really rare. I don't think I've ever seen one on the road (except mine :rolleyes )

My lad said this morning that it looks like Doc Hudson off that Cars film. I thought that was cool!! :D


First things first ...

:D Happy Birthday !!! :D

secondly , if your lad say's that the standard looks like doc Hudson then how about getting a patina'ed up old race car theme going on something like this ...

'The sensational standard 8 ' :P

looks fantastic lowered, have you thought about doing a kustom and then ageing it and making it a bit ratty so it looks like a suvivor from the 50's here's a couple of pics incase your not familiar with the kustom scene

I do like these. The wheels are so far up into the arches, you'd think they'd be poking out the top! :eek COOOOL!!

I can't go much lower without some major mods to the transmission tunnel. The prop shaft already hits the bottom of the car when I go over speed bumps. (I'm working on some bump stops)

As for the rust look, I love it and it's something I'm considering for my Beemer project.

Image
hmmmmmmmmm :drool


Unfortunately, I don't seem to have sufficient sized balls to carry it out. The Standard is heading that way naturally but the photos don't show it. There's a classic car restorer in my head telling me to leave the original paint alone.

I love the bamboo front grill on the pickup!! :rofl

Yeah. I think you're right. I reckon white walls would look much better. There's something wrong about these alloys but I can't put my finger on it. hmmmmmmmm
