Cars Profile

About me and my passion for cars

I've had a strong passion for 50s cars and the traditional style. I'm into how things really were rather than someone else's modern rendition of the late '50s/early '60s. It wasn't cry baby dolls against fenders or fake plastic food on trays. I'm into the kustom scene, and the East Coast scene: spiral wrap, angel hair displays, etc. I don't identify with the street scene much, the GTOs or the Beatles. But. I have respect! It doesn't matter what ride you have or how you fix it up, it's just what you get out of it that matters most.
