Thanks Tom, was waiting for someone to report on SEMA. I go every other year, missed this one.
Did anybody see that new 1940 coupe body that ford restoration parts came out with?
Here it is. Although it was in the Ford Booth, I had assumed it was another manufacturer that Ford teamed with. You mean that Ford is actually making them?
Also in the Ford Booth.
This one is neat. I don't think I have seen a rear spreader bar done like that.
Thanks for the pics. My flight on Monday out of Boston got cancelled due to hurricane Sandy so I totally missed SEMA this year. You see some really cool stuff there for sure. At least I get to look at your great pictures.
Good pics Tom. The '40 coupe repro is ramrodded by Dennis Carpenter after taking over from Bob Drake who started the project. Fords part is to license it for a fee.
I feel like I walk my legs off there, and still, every time someone posts up pics I will always see something I've missed. Thanks.
Right Bob. I think it is physically impossible to walk the whole thing and see everything without your legs giving out.
Nice to see something that is not lime green with dragons painted on it and a shopping cart handle on the back at SEMA.
Great photos. I need to put this on my bucket list of things to attend.
It ain't easy.........
Dennis Carpenter is selling them:
Real Deal Stell is manufacturing them:
Thanks for posting SEMA pics Tom!
thx for the pics
Is that a clone of the 69'er??
Posted from the TJJ App for iPhone & iPad
Not familiar with the name 69'er. I assume you are referring to that "homage" to an old A-Bro's custom roadster from the 60's. My opinion is that this one misses the mark in many ways (if it is indeed meant to be an exact clone). If it is indeed the real thing, my apologies to all concerned.
Man the Eldorod is a sweet looking car. I know it is OT for the Hamb, but Chip Foose sure has an eye for details.
In post #22, the Henry J is owned by Ted Dzus of the fastener fame. He said the car has an all aluminum hemi.
The yellow deuce is the Street Rodder magazine road tour car built by Hot Rods and Custom Stuff with the wheels/tires changed....sure changes the look of the car.
Sylvester car had torsion bars installed in the 50's according to the guy who discovered it in San Fran.
Awesome pics thanks for sharing
Man, some good stuff there. For some reason, the red sparkly dress is catching my eye.
Also, I sort hate to admit it, much less even say it, but that Mustang is kind of seriously bad ass looking. WTF? Did I really say that? I need to cut back on the bath salts.
Some of those cars have AMBR beat all to hell.
a couple of the pics I took
