While not entirely compatible with the rain we're experiencing in California at the moment, I'd still love to go cruising in this sweet red hot rod by ianying616. Just look at that beefy styling, that aggressive stance and all that shiny, shiny chrome. Can you just imagine what this baby sounds like?
I might be skewing this a bit more to the holidays than intended, I'm in a christmasy mood. But really, with that much pearl gold, silver and chrome, I could see Santa screaming around the north pole in this beast by redfern1950s2. Well, that is if he could squeeze into it. With a chop that aggressive he might have to roll Big Daddy Roth style, if you know what I mean.
In soviet Russia, hot rod modifies you (yeah, lame joke). Did you know Ford had a contract to produce cars for Russia based on the design for the '32 Deuce? Me either, and neither did builder Lino M, but what a source of inspiration for this radical chopped and lowered GAZ that came right out of the Russian space program.
You may not know this Star Wars fans, but you owe a debt of gratitude to this yellow hotrod. Prior to Star Wars getting greenlit the executives at Universal were scratching their heads at a little film from a young filmmaker named George Lucas. They didn't get it, and in fact almost shelved it, but when they finally released the film it was a smash hit. It had humor, it had poignancy, it had music and it had cars...We loved it. Based on it's success George was able to finally convince 20th Century Fox to give Star Wars a shot. The rest, as they say, is history. This updated version of John Milner's hotrod by Tiler makes me smell gas and hear Wolfman Jack.
This is pretty clever. I almost just scrolled right past this MOC, I suspect you almost did the same, but take a closer look. The roof and back of the cab is a book, and the windows are pail handles. The bottom of the cab is actually inverted, somehow the gap between the cab and the trunk is perfectly filled by the book half and I have no idea how this whole thing is held together. There's actually a lot of really slick building in this tiny hot rod by grantmasters.
Car builder extraordinaire Lino M is back with another stunning MOC. This time it's based on another Tom Daniel classic over-the-top hotrod, Beer Wagon. I remember building a Monogram model of this one as a kid, and I remember my mom being not so sure about the subject matter. Then she saw Mr. "Gasser" and suddenly this one wasn't so bad.
