    Vauxhall pic's...........

    Does anyone have any more photo's of this?




    Because this is the look i want to go for on my Cresta, got to love the 70's / 80's look.
    I have a motorcycle as i can't afford a ROD, but i can have as many rods as i like in 1/24th.

    Sorry mate but surely you don't want to revive that era. I know a fair few of us cut our teeth on motors like that but that must be the worst time in rodding history.
    If it's got tits or tyres, its gonna be trouble

    the only good thing about that era in my opinion was the lack of rules,everything got customised,a lack of snobbery and attitude but apart from that they look ****e nowadays

    Just your opinions, surely?

    Personally I love that stuff. Jacked up, sidepipes, Wolfies, murals.
    Bring it on (back).

    Sounds great to me

    There was a PB round my way in the 70s-had yellow painted slots in the wheels and yellow and red enderneath with the rear valence cut away slightly to show of the underside more.

    No doubt a "cruise light" shining on the rear axle!

    Hi Ratrod 1,

    I had a couple of customs like that (that style anyway) back in the 80s. I don't know if you have ever driven anything like that all jacked up high at the back. If you havn't i stongly recommend that you do as i think your plans for your ride will change very quickly.

    They may look good but i can assure you a really well done car like that is a pig to drive and a badly done one would at best be dangerous.

    I daresay there are others who have been down this route in their younger days and will tell you much the same.

    At the end of the day though you must build and drive what you want to, as that is what it is all about.

    Cheers.

    Russ.

    Ditto what UK Russ says. I saw this one with a milder lift last year, it still had a retro custom look to it without being OTT.
