Down On The Street

I spotted this gem of a chopped-and-channeled five-window coupe on San Diego's Kettner Blvd. today.
Lean and mean, I dare you to show me a better car to pick up a date in.

Or, better yet, to use drive your mother-in-law on a Kohl's/the grocery store/Walgreens run.
Why yes, officer, the vehicle did have straight pipes from the factory back in the 1930s. Does one really *need* larger tail lamps? Me thinks no.

Safety equipment? The (likely non-laminated) windshield counts, right? Sweet bias-ply treads too.
To my eyes, it has just about the perfect stance.
Although I'm not so sure that I'd want to take it on a long journey with such limited suspension travel.
Give it a year-of-manufacture plate and consider it done.
