I'm a huge fan of traditional customs. Simple in idea, big on skill to make it look right and most important-restraint! An inch too much on the chop or an incorrect tire and wheel choice ruins the whole package. You don't put Torq-Thrusts on a Matranga-style custom! With that in mind, I threw the taildragger custom look at a '37 Chevy coupe. Starting off with a serious chop, the back glass area has been laid down to flow into the rear deck. The B-pillars are slanted to almost caricature proportions to give a more dramatic effect. You can't have a ride like this without spots, so there are two of them! Did I mention smooth? This baby is smooth! New hood side panels are constructed and flanks de-barbed to create a long and low profile for the car. Blade bumpers festoon the forward and aft sections, and mandatory fender skirts ensure that the slight rake to the rear is nailed. Tires and wheels? What, are you kidding?! Sombrero wheel covers on wide whites. Yep, bias plies. We're talking traditional here. One concession to modern, evolved car building is an Air Ride system to adjust attitude. Finished details include a custom grille in the nose, cleverly hidden taillights (you know the kind), and re-pop E&J headlights if you can find them. Inside, the interior is mildly customized in rolls 'n' pleats. Motivation? Again-what, are you kidding? No crate motor here, it's Chevy inline six all the way with the right goodies. The jewel in the crown of this custom is the deepest, candy blue hue you can imagine. The kind of deep you can fall into. There you have it, I give you the Blue Hawa-yan. Tiki lounge not included!
