Ever watch that show called Rides?

I saw it last night for the first time. The subject of that show was a 1961 Cadillac Billy Gibbons was having customized for his girlfriend. Wow, what a car!

Rides, West Coat Customs (a little drama but very neat cars), Overhaulin', wheeler dealer are several other neat shows as well.

Yup! And the shows David mentioned below.

That Caddy is awesome!

I enjoy watching people with skill sets I don't have. Even if all of the work is not my style (the Caddy is) I do appreciate the craftsmanship, blood, sweat and tears that go into the work.

62 and 3 got a little better (understated fin). If I were coing a custom I would shave off the lower spar.
