San Francisco Street Sighting - 1952 Ford F-1 Pickup
Crown Customs, a hot rod shop on Van Dyke Avenue in the city. It features a patina that looks mostly earned, not faked, and the owner has shaved and filled the door handles for a mild custom look without going crazy like the poor '48 F-1 I featured years ago. That one suffered an atrocious roof chop and lowering that ruined an otherwise original pickup. This one has fat whitewall tires and black steelies to spice up an otherwise "tired" looking truck. I like the Iskenderian Racing Cams sticker on the windshield; who knows how old that might be. I just might have to pay a visit to Crown Customs someday. It seems like a cool place.
