My thing on any mod, does it REALLY add to the look, the over all look? Personally, this is me personally, I don't think shaving handles on any pre-1950 car adds a damn thing to the looks. They are boxy, covered in all kinds of lines going every direction, the over all look isn't improved one bit. Take a 50 Ford or Chevy, whole different ball game. Shaved handles and frenched lights, you are shaving off the ONLY things that aren't flowing with the rest of the lines of the car. And on a 69 Camaro, DON'T GET IT sorry, it isn't a custom, it makes no sense what so ever to me.

On the 30's cars, the handles are one of the very cool features like the lights hanging out, like the vertical windshield, like the running boards, they ADD to the cars character they don't take away from it.

Just my opinion.
