I drove up to Detroit last minute on Thursday evening and as usual I'm sick when I get back. F Detroit....until next year!

My heart wants the So-Cal Streamliner even though it's impractical...



My head says go for the perfect '32 Sedan down in the basement so I can scoot the family around in. I'd also be able to sell the winter front grille insert off of it and but a roadster project which would be a toofer! This thing was perfect!

"Mine would be the 28/29 pictured above. It’s still under construction, obviously, but I can already hear that blower screaming in pain and the tires ripping up a backroad somewhere far out in the country. It’s an evil bastard and I love that about it. It just fits my present mood."


I can imagine it fighting for traction on the salt.....Just has the look of a battle ready monster ready to leave its mark. Hope to see many like it at Speedweek. Thanks for the great image.

I really dig those pipe on the blown roadster. The black paint on the other is f-ing amazing too. DAMN!

I love that '28-'29 roadster as well. Killer car. Killer motor. Killer stance. What more does it need? (aside from finishing it..)



But I really like this chopped Chevy too. At first, I looked at it and thought "Nice Ford" then I read a couple comments on that it was a Chevy and went back and noticed the belt lines weren't Ford.





I'd have to flip a coin between the two.

Yeah, I agree with Jeffrey on the streamliner... it was amazing!

I also loved the Jo Kerr built roadster which was sitting right next to his coupe.

Jeff, I agree with you totally on Jo Kerr! I went to his shop last year and he is a great craftsman with attention to detail. He will go far in this industry!! I love both of his builds that were there. One of my favorite cars there was Andersons 36. Just awesome!!

In case you didn't know, that's Dan's tudor also. It's an all original 4 cylinder car that, supposedly, has only had a head gasket replaced. It runs and drives great, and Dan just lowered it and converted it to hydraulic brakes the week before the show. He found that Pines that had matching patina, and Pete Eastwood dropped the headlight bar too.

Yeah I figured it was his daughters when I seen the A. Webb on his show sign. Pretty jealous of that thing for sure.

I believe that the Blown Roadster is the epitome of the Perfect Hot Rod!

Of course it didn't have to compete against my all time favorite... the 15oz coupe!

That blown roadster in the lead photo is a Hot Rod. Freakin' killer.

I thought this T Roadster was about perfect. I went back to look at it everyday since setup on wednesday. I bet with that tri-power Y-Block it's a lot of fun to drive.
