Did not expect a 6 cylinder did you?

Very thinly applied rattle can silver paint job

Is this what they call a TOY TRAIN?

Maybe it's too low if you have to extend body parts for the tires?

I bet it pulls wheelies just by scientific calculations
A mid-engine Buick V8 VW- enough said!

I want this one!

A Hovercraft!


Caddy hearse

Oh no they killed Kenny!

Nope just a Charger with Daytona Wing and fender scoops- his garage is too short for the nose cone, really!

What's with the wings?

PACKARD hearse 

What is it?
A Rockne named for the famous Football coach built by Studebaker


This has become so common people think they came with extended cabs!

This actually an old custom brought back to life
Le Parisianne 

Well it is actually a clone- the original still is around and had at least 1 update before being cast aside


More toy trains?

Yes jet engine powered

The other guy told me he would have the only Dodge Wagon- hey!

 I had no idea when I first saw this rig
Holy update Batman

Yes they restore GTO's

The guy was holding up a paddle with the name of what it was, I was scared to talk to him so I ran away! 
Nice survivor Satellite

You don't often see stock Packard's at hot rod shows  

I want this Caddy!

This one happy little tike in his little tike!

This crazy dude built a real one!
No no this is a smart tike!
Movie TV time 

And he even has the clip on tie- say it, cute!

 Much effort went into this one and I really like the actual Packard Hubcap on each wheel, look close!

Bob Hirohata with the most famous custom car
This Mercury set the wheels in motion
Sam Barris actually was more linked to the car than George

The car recently was displayed on the US Capitol mall of Washington DC and is on the National historic registry!

Movie was 1959

Follow the flow chart folks!
