Went to one of the last shows this year. I have one more next weekend. There is not a lot of pics because it was for rat rods, customs and some nice original cars. As usual, I suck at taking pics, but I did get a few. On the way home I started to get a loud noise at the back end of the car when I took the foot off the accelerator. Goes away when I give it gas. Sounded like my driveshaft was wobbling. I made it home and just put it in the car because I was tired as heck. Looked at it yesterday and one of the front ladder bar bolts had worked its way out. Put in another one with a nylock on it and took it for a drive. Much better. here are the pics I did take.

I would bypass the majority of car shows that are primarily restored muscle cars and cookie cutter late model cars to go to a car show like this that offers real, home garage built cars even if there weren't a bunch of gassers. I really like that 55 Chevy with the bubble hood. I'd walk right past any late model Vet, Camaro, Mustang, Challenger, etc. to look at it.
Thanks for posting Dave and good catch on the ladder bar bolt.

yep, this was a 1965 or older, trucks were 72 or older. no 4x4's no billet wheels and NO late model cars. My favorite was the el camino. Solid car from california. guy was super nice! I forgot to mention I had the dash pinstriped. I will grab some pics tonight.

The car in your second group if pictures #1 and #5 is one Ian Roselle built on his show. He sold it right after it was done to some guy who said he'd finish it himself.
It was such a cool car. I had trouble getting pics because every time I walked by, there were tons of people around it. No way I could even fit in that thing!

I must have missed that episode of his show. He shows what can be accomplished with hand tools and a couple rudimentary shop tools but also a whole lot of talent and imagination!

Is that the full custom garage guy?
Yes, that's the guy. Don't recall when it was originally aired, but I've seen the build on his show twice, and repeated several times over the years.
Looks like the current owner took off the stupid wooden spoke spinners he used to have on it.



He built it, and rebuilt it by changing roofs, and even doing some crazy body mods. Seemed like he had a tough time keeping himself from changing it until he finally sold it.

While I can totally appreciate the craftsmanship, I don't get it. There is no leg room, it is skinny as hell because the transmission tunnel and would not be fun to drive.

No leg room, no head room, reclined seating position, and not much that would make it very easy to drive for long. But a lot of Ian's builds push the limits, and are often built to look like cartoon drawings of cars that never existed. It's sort of a theme car to catch people's eye, and draw them in. Lots of strange cars were built on his show, and not many I wanted to own. But his creativity and building from salvaged parts made me want to watch every show. He could build some unique cars and never buy any new metal, or parts.

Love the pics Dave. Love seeing Temper Tantrum being showed off. Glad you caught the loose bolt in time. And yes Ian is my hero. Loved his dog (Dude). Great show.
