1952 Chevrolet owned by Jon Thomas. Jon bought the Chevy from the brother of a Tacoma Capers member. Jon's Chevrolet was restyled by Tacoma Capers member Dick Page, and it featured frenched 1952 Ford headlight rings, filled hood and trunk, filled door handles and 1950 Buick taillights that were frenched vertical on the fender ends. After finishing the body, Dick painted the car Candy Red over a silver base. All work was done in Dick's mothers garage. The interior was pearl white 1" pleats by Bill "Little Bill" Wright, he also a Tacoma Capers member. Jon was a collage student at the time, and had to sell the car soon after Dick finished it.[1]
