Here's one right up your alley Virgil, and one of my favorite paint schemes. Whoopiekat decals was supposed to be creating this in decal form.

That '63 Vette is sick!! I also love that older pic with the two Willys.

I have always had a thing for the Hill Bros '33 Willys. I don't know why, because I've always thought '33s were kinda ugly but.....
What a bitchin' car!

Sorry to double up here but I just remembered another one......

The Jimmy Shine '57 Chev. It's a recent build but oh-so-sweet and oh-so-correct for that era. Probably the prettiest one I can think of in my opinion.

This is great thread!! If I would post all of my Favorite Gassers, it would take too long time. Here are some Finnish Gassers. Not so much, but....

http://public.fotki.com/Rinnewood/races/vsr-wcsc2011/img-0784.html This may be Dr. Cranky's favorite... :lol:
http://public.fotki....8010253jpg.html and http://public.fotki....8010255jpg.html Gasser can be European car too. This is Opel Rekord.

Keep the eye candy coming. I hope one day soon we'll have the PIntos and the Vegas along with the Gremlin that's coming out soon.
