    nice very nice
     
  3. 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.

  4. 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....

    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.....
     
  8. WOW...that thing rules....

    Looks like one of Weez's "cartoon cars" with killer detail and execution !!

    Amazing !

    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.
     
  12. Ahhhhh, WOW!!!
    Thanks for posting that video!
    Great skills and vision!
     
  13. 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....
