Great pics Flipper! Thanks for posting all these.
It was built at Kemp's Rod and Restoration. You might give them a call to find out more info.
Here are build pics from their site.
Car bras and billet steering colums,CB radios and center consoles,yep thats goodguys...but that 36 green ford with the wire wheels is awesome...thanks for the pics
I have to agree. How about a Bug eyed Sprite version? Spriget MKIIs? Austin Bantam!!! Gary
Did someone wreck on the autocross on Sat?
Part of the reason I take and post so many pics is to learn "what not do do, as much as what to do".
Every once in a while I get an idea that I think may look good...I surf through my pictures to see if anybody else has tried something similar. Sometimes I find the same idea; if it looks like hell, I drop the idea right there. .....Sometimes it looks great and I do it.
Awesome pics,Thank You
That's one of the reasons for going to a GG's show...or any other "billet" show for that matter...there's lots of ideas there on every car, from individuals, and builders, that can afford to say "do it this way no matter the cost." If it wasn't for them, half the ideas on HAMB cars today wouldn't be there (including the dreaded air bags...!!!).
the shoebox with the yblock is perfection!
Yes, it was one of the RideTech truck & was pretty bad too....green Chevy truck, I think it was.
As for the show itself.....
I love this show, enough traditionals to keep me happy, but stil too many rat rods and this year way too many junk rods. IMO, Nashville is a very fun town.
MAN , glad i didn't drive the el camino:>)
Great Pics! I was there 3 days and did not see alot of the cars in the pictures you took.
My first post was a negative take on all the streamlined interiors, bucket seats, and center console interiors, but I can't imagine so many fine cars in one place, especially the unusual humback sedans, rare models, and unusual vehicles, a real treat. It is hell to be so stuck in the 50's-60's look and not be able to appreciate the big wheel, low profile tires, tilt columns, billet pieces. Then I realize it is mainly because I don't have the bucks to obtain all those items. Hats off to the guys smart enough to be successful in life and build beautiful cars. ~sololobo~
I do that all the time. They are a big source of relief later when you think to yourself, man, I'm sure glad I didn't do that - especially paint colors! Gary
Great job Flipper, thanks for all the interior shots. I am looking for interior ideas for my 40 and got plenty from your coverage.
Great Pictures Flipper! Glad you stopped by and introduced your self,always nice to meet fellow HAMBer's.
Come on Bruce....I am not talking about cars like your El Camino, it is as traditional as can be. I was not talking about rust or rough bodys, I am talking taste and safety.
Love the photos! WOW! Great coverage. I too like everything but prefer traditional, however, there are a LOT of cool ideas that can come out of studying everything there. THANK YOU for taking the time to post all of this.
PS: What are you shooting with??
Nothing special. It is a four year old Canon Powershot S5is. I just leave it in auto mode all the time.
I know it is not HAMB style but I dig this.. any idea what the wheels are
great pics thanks if i hadnt of lost my job i would of been there ....maybe next year
something off a space age train ? they might be blanks before design cuts ,they do look pretty big 22 or 24 on the rear, boones modified wheels ?
Those wheels are centerline smoothies that have been brushed and Chevy centercaps.
Centerlines by Delmos Rod and Custom
Wow what a job posting all those pics.I just used the scroll button on the mouse to move by the stuff I didn't like.
My only comment is WTF on this one!!! Picture attached.
Houston we are ready for take off.
More like a Wurlitzer to me. Still pretty silly. But I do have a few myself... Gary
Awsome coverage Flipper.
Takes some pain out of having to cancel for me.
