Holy guacamole! So it is a 1959 Thunderbird convertible with a modified 1960 Thunderbird interior. Nicely done custom.

Talking

Looks nice. But, call me a realist, I'm not too sure about the Vise-Grips on the Light Switch.

Roger on the "More Work". But, isn't it fun! And I thought El Guapo had something to do with the movie "Three Amigos". I can see that it is the Hood Release now.

Cool El Guapo / Three Amigos

Hey guys, I think the vice grips give El Guapo's 59 / 60 hood latch, a very unique look.If anything else, at least he's prepared for just about anything that requires to be clamped down or smacked!!!!!!!!!!!

As a matter of fact, Took some friends out Thurs. night and the bracket I made for the alternator was off just enough to throw a belt, and of course I brought no tools with me and nobody at the club we were at had a 9/16 .So out came the vise grips,Got the belt back on ,battery charged and off to the next club where someone had a socket set i borrowed for the price of a beer.
Next day installed spacers for the bracket and a tool set in the trunk.
Those vise grips looked pretty good.Of course I had to replace the rounded off 9/16 bolt.

Cool

El Guapo. That is why although we put alot of time and effort into our cars the mighty vice grip, is an essential tool to have in the vehicle. Almost as important as " duct tape".

If you want a laugh, On the main page you will see a button
to " search ". Enter in "duct tape" and read the posts.
