anyone know who and /or what won hot rod of the year at goodguys indy this yrar?
Yep. Bill Steele's '30.
Check the website for the whole story. www.good-guys.com
Thank God!...I thought for sure it would have been the '32 sedan by Pinkee's, great car, but what a horrible color.
That's a great looking hot rod. Congrats to the owner.
wow, thats bitchin'!
Very well deserved!!!
am I the only one that likes that lime green?
that's a cool A. anybody know what the dash is? reminds me of my brothers 4WD Willys pick up
I thought that green looked fantastic on that car but some of these guys think hotrods only should be painted rattle can flat black.
The A coupe is one hell of a car for a guy's first full build. and it must be a hell of a nice driver along with looking right.
From reading the criteria for the award a 100 mile road trip and a pass down a drag strip were included in the requirements when a car was put in contention for the award. That will knock out a lot of those rods that never get driven in fear of a rock chip or putting miles on the odometer.
great car, well thought out
Gorgeous little car. I really like the black through the beltline. Helps tie it all together.
Lots of attitude right up front. Very well detailed but still looks traditional. Great stance.
Im sure this cars well done and it has good lines and well balanced ,but man its ugly at a distance it looks like a rat with paint .in a crowd with a couple thousand cars you could easily pass this car over its not my tast but i can see the effort again well done .
Can we see some pics of the other contenders?
where were you this year?
Very cool car, I like it.
Congrats. Isn't he a HAMBer?
I like the Pinkee's deuce alot. Of course I was pulling for Tangerine Scream to win...
Had a great looking license plate also.
The license plate is awesome... Not real legal but awesome none the less...
Lots of little details I can see on that one. Anybody have close up shots of it?
I don't think Billy is a HAMBer.... But I will get on him to get on here since the car is done... This was his first full blown rod... He is normally builds bad ass custom bikes.. www.steelekustoms.com
I borrowed all the pics from a fellow HAMBer... Except the bare metal one...
I love this car!!!!!
What's up with the dual shifters?????
Easy to see why that ones a winner.
There's pics of Dirty2's old tudor on his website.
Is that where Dirty's car ended up?
Did Dirty's car give this guy the rod itch?
The second shifter is the e-brake... We made alot of joke about that when the car was being built..
He did buy Dirty's car... He sold it last year right before Columbus Goodguys... It is now in Belgium..
I was at the shop and snapped a pic of the plate... "The Hot Rod State" Cops might have fun with it!!
I love the car, but am not so sure about the color combo. I'm suprised they'd pick a car with such suttle color. Maybe be less really is more.
