In the 50's the way to customize a car was to make it look more modern. More futuristic. The newest technology of the day was Metalflake. Fiberglass and custom lights were the way to go. Now when we use these flashy brilliant coatings and colors it's in reverence to that golden era. We can relive it to a degree but outside of select car shows it's not what it was. Lucky for us there is one place that the esthetic has remained the same. The carnival. The fonts, the graphics, the lights and the gel coat metal flake. It's everywhere. The best time capsule ever.
