70's style
« on: December 21, 2012, 05:10:53 PM »
When talking about the seventies, the first thing that comes to mind is long-haired chicks with halter tops & bell bottoms... oh wait, this is a car forum !  Mmmmm, give me a minute here....

okay, back on track - wide tires (the wider the better) followed by wild paint jobs & jacked up, I mean JACKED UP hot rods !

Actually, several styles emerged in the 70s.  John Buttera's T tudor was the epitome of the resto rods, highly detailed with many hand fabricated chassis components.

Jim Jacobs and others felt the need to go another direction, a much simpler direction.  Built to drive long distances without worrying about one-off parts breaking, they built their hot rods with basic components.   Pete & Jake's coupes popularized the traditional movement, and it is even more popular today, albeit with some minor changes.

Andy Brizio's AMBR-winning T roadster was very unique with the Art Himsl-applied paint.  I'd love to see this paint style come back !

No, I actually like it  :o, but I have no idea what style of hot rod it would compliment, other than what's been done already.

Psychedelic (how many would know how to spell that) paint isn't for me but I do remember the really wide wheels hanging out. Bellbottoms were cool.

Only thing I owned w/ a wild paint job was a 70's GMC van.
Portholes, swivel captain's chairs, couch, TV, shag carpet. Had a stove, icebox & a sink at the back door.
Paint was a combo of greens & blues w/ airbrushed mural, lace & freak drops.
It was awful looking. Camped in it & pulled my blown Sanger hydro with it.
