dammit!!! just when you think you know a thing or two...
along comes this ruler! beautiful.
nice very nice
Here are a few pics of the sedan that is seen peeking in the background of one pic. Mike built this for his lovely wife Dianne who is a HAMBer and goes by the name Fenderskirt. The sedan is a work of art itself and has seen many street miles and track quarter miles.
The truck is so impressive...the quality of work is top notch...and the imagination and creativity are way above top notch.
People might laugh at this....but...Out of all the crazy work that was done on this ride...my favorite part of the whole truck is....
The roof! Subtle differences from the Henry version...the way the "a" pillars radius off at the top and roll across the body above the visor. Gives a nice stepped framing for the snubbed visor. That combined with the lower profile roof line....WOW!
That's what customizing is all about....
And once again my list of favorite A trucks grows longer..
All I have to say is that it's interesting that his car is the one getting the hidden stereo system (and he's deaf!!!). But hey - I'm not complaining!!
Every time I hop in it to make broom broom noises I'm told I'm sitting in the wrong seat.....
WOW...that thing rules....
Looks like one of Weez's "cartoon cars" with killer detail and execution !!
Great travail , keep it coming please
that is incredible
Weird. I just had put aside a video to upload featuring Mike from a few years back.
Here it is:
Insane talent and one of the nicest, and humble guys you could meet.
Thanks for posting that video!
Great skills and vision!
We are just in the final stages of a full feature in the January issue of New Zealand Hot Rod Magazine of this incredible build by Mike. It will be out just before Christmas....
Wow. All that incredible talent and he puts the steering column on the wrong side !
Looks as sanitary as an operating room!
Clean and mean.
Well we just mailed the January 100 page summer special with Mike's pickup on the cover and making centrefold amongst the 12 page feature. Its an incredible piece of automotive art: http://www.nz-hotrod.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?8586-Jan-2013-issue&p=106736#post106736
Ive got to have this magazine. Mikes fabs skills are not of this world. Great thread and have added it to my favorites.
Wow! is an understatement, wonderful design and execution!
WOW it is a work of Art. To bad a lot of the work will not be seen.

Hope this ain't the last. Do a roadster next.
Cool Truck. Keep us updated. Thanks
Just letting you guys know that you can check it out for yourself at the LA Roadster show. I believe it will be inside a building at the Long Beach swap meet booth.

My Gawd. Stunning craftsmanship. Beautiful vision excellently executed. Badass.
