I always appreciate good workmanship, but the back of that doesn't do a lot for my taste. Others will no doubt love it, each to their own.

each to their own.. I can appreciate the time and effort to customize it... just not to my taste.

Likewise, the back end looks like is was done as an afterthought or they run out of imagination.

The tail-lights and the panels they are mounted on 'clash', there is no cohesion.

Wow.:confused:
What wuz they thinkin'?
Or better still
What wuz they drinkin'?

Is the car named "Clipped Wings"?

:p

Ah - the "Electra".....maybe it wrecked with a Buick.

Pink pictures taken in 1962 so that was the early days of the custom cars - guess they were still trying to "one up" the other guy.

Naaaaa

I agree with many of your comments. That is beauty of being the " owner " of our TBirds. It is their vision that counts as they are paying the bills to customize while the " purists " restore to original.
