I know it’s a popular term these days but this 1941 Buick looks Gangsta 🙂 I hope you enjoy.
Up until the 1950’s there was a automobile called DeSoto.

This is by far my favorite model year Ford pickup truck the 1956. This owner did a great job customizing this truck notice the exhaust tips exiting from the running boards.
I love the way the original wooden bed is restored on this truck.
And a little trick sheet metal work in the tailgate with some louvers. I hope you enjoy.
This is a 1956 Cadillac Coupe deVille. This is when cars really started to get big. Notice the massive amounts of sheet metal and chrome.
This one also was tastefully lettered in gold along with the insignias.
Notice the full width air vent under the windshield for ventilating the interior.
These cars also drove the gas station attendants crazy because the gas filler was accessed by swinging the tail light to one side and the filler was behind it. Also take notice the dual exhaust exits from the bumper something that todays car designers think is a new idea. I hope you enjoy.
This is another example of a classic american hot rod. This 1950 Ford coupe also was customized with a chopped roof some trick metalwork with the rear fender skirts hiding the wheel and the suspension was also lowered to give it that sleek low rider look.
It’s all finished off with a flame paint job on top of satin black paint with some pin striping. I hope you enjoy.
I am more of a Ford person but there is no denying the great looks of the 1957 Chevrolet. I think it is one of the best looking model years, and back then the manufacturers changed the body style each year.
From any angle this car just looks great.
1957 is also the year “fins” started to appear on every manufacturers auto line. These cars used to drive the gas station attendants crazy also. Notice the door in the chrome above the tail light was where the gas filler was hiding. Younger people might think “what gas attendant ?” Years ago there was a gas the attendant that pumped the fuel, checked your oil and cleaned your windshield (and that was all for 39 cents a gallon gas).
Bullets like the pair of them on this Chevy’s hood were also very popular. I hope you enjoy.
This deuce coupe is a little “in your face” but thats the beautiful part about the hot rod hobby, you can make them as wild as you want.
A little peek of the air filter on the small block Chevy engine.
This one also has the more classic approach to hanging the mirrors compared to yesterday’s deuce coupe.
And of course the beautifully finished dashboard and interior. I hope you enjoy.
