Default ++PHOTOS... swiss hot rod culture with the CHEATERS++

The Cheaters Geneva are one of the most active swiss hot rod clubs. It's always a treat to visit their shop where they work on their projects. Here are a couple of pics from their open house party last saturday. Click here for the slideshow: http://www.flickr.com/photos/lowtech...37673382/show/

Next time anyone wonders what traditional is, click on this clubs work. It looks like a scene of The Rumblers 1958, outstanding my brothers and sisters. I am knocked out by the Scandanavion standards for hot rods and customs. Thanx for sharing. ~sololobo~

Wow, what a collection from just one group. Great taste and sense of style. Love the grille housing on the '49-50...original and just plain bad! Perfect proportions on the '34 coupe.
