Most Cal-lookers seem to be hard tops. Probably because they weigh less and are cheaper. Were verts ever thought of as real cal-look material? Any famous verts in the old days? Anyone have a favorite vert cal-looker? How about some pics of Cal-look drop tops.

Mike, that's a pretty cool looking 'vert.

I remember when Metz first built and brought out his 'vert. He was years ahead of the scene in regards to how the car ended up looking. I couldn't stop staring at it during the last Bug-In at O.C.I.R. I've posted pictures that I've taken of the car somewhere on The Lounge. If I can't find 'em, I'll do a few re-scans. By far, my all-time favorite late Cal Look convertible. Especially when it had the old wheels on it with the first factory paint scheme only around the lugnut areas. Timeless and classic.

That red, oval era convertible is very nice. Shubee do you know anything about the blue oval in the background. It looks like a chop top with no engine vents, but a cabriolet decklid. The quarter windows have a different shape too.

Here are a couple I took.

One of my all-time favourite cars, one other favourite 'Vert was Wayne Elam's (in Volksworld around 1996-97?) black '65(?) but don't have any photos of that one.

I think this car was featured in Volksworld in the mid nineties, did he also have a brown 68ishh with rivieras?  If so I'm sure it was featured.

Nice 'vert, Sarge. I dig the no chrome touch on the running boards... looks very at home on that car.

I really like this one! What a good looking car. Great stance and my favorite color.

Lets see some without chrome!! I remember there was a plain white 'vert looker featured in HotVWs years ago, it was alongside a stock black oval window. Anyone remember it?? It was bad ass!!

If it was the same as the Volksworld featured one, it was a Hunsaker-brothers car - I just can't remember which brother! Cheesy

The ultimate one without chrome is Richie Webb's car. T-bars, lucas indicators, nose down and gasburners. Pure cal look!

Yep, that was mine.
The car was a common site, white and mostly in stock form, back in the Camelot & Carl's Jr. days in Anaheim.
I bought it off of Tim & Carla Schull (s/p?) and spent a year restoring it.
The color was a non-metallic dark blue, the darkest I could find at the time.
Dyno brokered the sale to Bill Taramino shortly after it was finished as I got in way over my head money-wise trying to finish it.
It's strange to see it in print in the Cal-Look book after 20 years.
Thanks for that pic Sarge, got any others? Ken.

Nice to finally put a name to a picture, Ken... Greg Brinton pointed you out recently.  That was a sweet looking car and I bet the guys would like to hear more about it (as well as some Camelot / CJ's tales Roll Eyes Wink).  Here's another pic for you from the reunion with the Berglar, Lazenby's '63 and your Vert as well as another I've been trying to figure out who's who in... any ideas on the sepia late model or the red car on the left?   My apologies for screwing up the thread here, folks! Wink
