Car shows, part #10,987,353

...as the local lowrider car club sponsored a show at the park this morning.

I've seen most of the cars before, but there are always new ones. This hot rod, based on a 30s-vintage Ford, was built in Japan. I would guess you could buy all of Idaho for the same money, though that wouldn't be as much fun...




Almost directly across for that one was this "rat rod," a mixture of scrap parts which was built locally and probably cost the owner enough to buy a Yugo in running condition...



The inside is as "ratty" as the outside. Note the gas pedal, which suggests you wouldn't want to drive barefoot. You'd either get burned, or get tetanus...



The were some fine restorations as well. This 1950 Studebaker Champion coupe was the sweetest of the bunch...



The guy who owns it -- and did the restoration work -- is the son of the Stude's original owner...



Naturally, I have plenty of pictures. A few more will appear anon....

Nice photos Scrib! Very cool looking cars!

JF -- The main reason the photos look good is that it has been cloudy here all day. It's like shooting in a studio with good lighting.

I'd take the rat rod over any of the others. I would add some gauges and some decent upholstery, and call it finished.

dal -- it's got gauges, dude! And the pads on the floor look like they were carefully upholstered....
