factory custom friday: 1960 starliner

1960 is one of my favorite years in American automotive design. More than ever before or after, the cars looked like they had just escaped one of those glittery Motorama Shows. With their bubble tops and their tailfins turned by 90 degrees emphasizing the width of the cars even more, they were customs straight from the factory. This 1960 Ford Starliner, which I slightly improved stance-wise, is a perfect example. It would ideally complement the driveway of any midcentury modern house in Palm Springs but it still looks stunning even in this slightly more conservative setting. And yes, I'll be trying to post another factory custom the next Friday so stay tuned, Jetsons.
