    I love that photo Dave.
    The Ford on the Left is an Valley Custom Shop built coupe for Byron Walton. I did an article on it in 2014.

    Thanks for the link Rik!  I had missed that article and it’s great to see other angles of the car and to know a bit of it’s history.  I’ve always been amazed at the quality and variety of customs and rods that appeared on the various specialty car lots in the ’50s.  I like to imagine myself as a kid on a bike back then; making regular visits to these lots, wishing I had my licence and dreaming about cruising the high schools and drive-ins..  I would have felt like a King!  Sigh.

    Found this one online… Mild Custom 1950 Mercury in black on the left side of the photo.

    Very nice!  Perhaps they saw “Rebel Without a Cause”..?

    Two photos taken at the Kurtis Shop.

    Both show the same mildly restyled 1950 Merc in the background.

    Does that shaved shoebox have a removable top? Or is it just the pic ?

    Hey cool, that’s Hollywood and Vine and my signs were on the same corner until 1942 that is.
