FALL CHATTANOOGA CRUISE PART 3

THIS IS PART 3 LOOK TO THE RIGHT FOR PART 1 AND 2 IN MARCH
I have left the crazy stuff for last! 
As this hits the blog I am in final tasks to head to Chattanooga for the spring cruise this coming weekend!
Full size pick up turned into street rod 

Hey I am working on something like this!!

Five window coupe turned extended cab pick up
Tasteful muscle Chrysler 




Is that a luggage rack?

Rich Corinthian Leather anyone?









Love this fat custom!

Just to clarify NOT built by Creative Industries! You know who you are, stop hiding!!






Hey all the MOPAR dudes hiding over here?
Just for the record T/A Challengers were only 1970's not 1971's









I walked past this 3 times
Then I saw the Toyota 4 cylinder engine in it!









Look carefully this was  born an International Scout II 

Hold me tight I am scared!


ah, ah, ah, never mind! 
The city would not allow the old Firestone sign mounted on the building so it found a 40ft trailer mount! 





Although Corky Coker seems like the kind of guy that might always be fooling around, be assured this man is a force in this hobby. Anyone can buy a bunch of cars, but if you look at his collection it is very clear Corky knows his shiitake! In that private museum are some of the rarest motorcycles, cars and trucks around!
What's a Hurlburt? About a pound, oh that's a Henway, ask someone they will explain. OLD JOKE alert!
From 1912 to 1925 William B Hurlburt built his trucks right in NYC!
Outgrew the factory on the upper East Side they moved to the north end of 3rd avenue right on the Harlem River in Harlem!

NO NOT Creative Industries!





Two days to Chattanooga!!
