When I first saw this car I was blown away..then saw who did it...all I knew of him was what I saw in “old school rodz” or turdz depending on your taste. He was totally cool, humble, invited me over the ropes, spent some time going over the mods and how they were exicuted...I gained a ton of respect for the man they call Vodoo Larry...still love this car!
4/5 years ago saw this very well designed 58' Nomad Wagon was sitting in one Morrison Chassis buildings, don't know the current status... Dyno Dave
I met Larry years ago, when he displayed this car with Gene Winfield's featured exhibit at Cobo Hall.
He also indulged me with utmost courtesy. At that time, he was more comfortable with the "flat" set downstairs. and actually proclaimed this would be his last "Shine" car! Thank the Kustom gods he shed that notion!
What s the story on that ^ Mo, it looks Hudsonish..............in a great way!
How about a Caddy, to up the ante?
That Caddy is BAD ASS!
After changing the front grille treatment on the Hudson it was still lacking some finishing. Lindsay did some pinstriping that makes a difference. Not the best picture in the sunlight!!!

Reminds me of this great looking Caddie...
MO, is this a 35/36 Ford?
Yes indeed! There were some build photos somewhere on the HAMB, if you can find them.
"The Goodguys Kustom of the Year award for 2010 went to Hollywood tattoo artist Pascal “Bugs” Jarrion’s 1935 Ford built by Troy Ladd of Hollywood Hot Rods. From Goodguys:
The car originally started life as a humpback sedan but was meticulously transformed into a chopped 3 window coupe. All body panels were either handmade or modified to create a longer, “Zephyr” style Westergard-inspired kustom. In addition to the chopped top, the low and sleek look was achieved by the rear 8 inches and adding 10 inches to the handmade rear fenders. Fender skirts and running boards were also fabricated while a Bentley hood skin was used for the decklid area. The headlights are from a Chevy truck, and the distinctive grill came from a White truck. The car was finished off in a ruby brown metallic. It sits on a custom frame with Ridetech goodies, a 4-link rear suspension with a Ford 9-inch and a tried and true 350/350 combo."
Has anybody got the link for this build?
Thank you Straykatkustoms
Unfortunately the thread on here that was more in depth doesn't have any pictures working anymore.
