We have quite a few threads on here with pics, and most of you have tons of pics of your ride.
Now, i'm just wondering what if you post just one pic here of which you think it shows the whole attitude of what your cal-looker is about...

I don't have many pics of this season yet, but i have to kick off anyhow...

I posted one of this series in b&w a few days ago-this time in colour mode: my car in front of the Porsche villa (like it cause itīs quiet "uncommon" as a "Cal Look" motive)

Nothing like the feeling when you're out on the road on a sunny day with the ragtop open and the sound of a 3" muffler and IDAs....

Damn, that photo of John Lazenby's Butternut is bitchin! I recall seeing that Bug parked in front of the Buena Park Auto Haus for years. And it always looked that clean....even on Beach Blvd., and in Buena Park! Too bad HVWs never shot that car while it was still around. Just look at the depth of that paint job!

Here is one of my old '67 from Bug-In 14, taken April 1975. Notice the one-piece windows.

Wow, that's a early one-piece picture Deano! With a bullet mirror and cal-look rubber, that thing is full blown! Just the look I'm going for.
I have to admit that I would have guessed a newer date on that picture  Lips Sealed

Thanks for the nice comments about my old '67. The "Cal Look" rubber was actually OEM stuff with the trim removed, as was the running boards. I found the Talbot mirror and Mota Lita steering wheel at MG Mitten back in '74. Now about the window glass. We all talked about one-piece windows for years, but even Leonard Becker and son Jim (Becker's Paint) could not figure out how to make them work. Somewhere along the line, I heard of Frank's Glass in Bellflower, and called them. They had it figured out, so the car went down there just prior to the April '75, Bug-In 14. I wasn't the first to have them on the street, but I was at a Bug-In. At that same Bug-In, the car finished second out of 54 cars in Semi-Custom (then owned by Julie Martin). Jim Larsen's brother Gary, won the class with the Squareback Panel conversion.

I drove this car for about 4 years, about 20,000 miles, mostly to and from Fullerton college, work and F&A. During the majority of that time, the DDS wheels were on it, and I never had a problem. The only other car that had DDS wheels on the street was Bobby Chapman (Ghia roadster), or at least, in southern California that I saw. BTW, my new car will have two of my original DDS wheels on the front!

This car always had the original stock '67 tranny, which never came out for any reason. The engines ranged from a 1600 with a Holley, to an 1835 with a Holley, to dual IDAs, and finally, a 1700 with IDAs and a 110, when the H case gave up the rear galley plug. While I did show it a lot, it never saw the drags. I sold it with a fresh stock 1600cc, for $1800 in February 1975, in the condition shown in that photo. sob, sob.
