Every once in a while I come across a little slice of period-perfect perfection. Today's example is one of those vehicles that serves to remind me that less is often more. While I've been obsessing over how to bury "Poochie, our '61 Econoline into the weeds, along comes a tasteful rake that looks, well, perfect. Of course, the rake is not the only thing that makes this Econoline wonderful. I wouldn't be surprised if the money saved not trying to make it ride lower than it was ever intended to,  may have made the tasteful mods ot does have possible. For example, the bumpers, the grill, the roof color and the Cragar SS wheels. And check out the mirrors. Not small peekaboos that hardly work. But the industrial kind that actually do a bang up job. I love it. Kudos to the builder/owner. Period prefect.
