[zfp_photo id=’h338346fa’]

I walked by this car at the Todd Harrison & Son Phoenix Car Swap Meet and did a double take.

Not sure of all the modifications but there were at least body mods to the front and rear fascias. Do you like or dislike what they have done? More shots after the jump Continue reading

Project Olds – ’65 Oldsmobile 442 Clone

I saw this for the first time at SEMA 2013 but was yet again pleasantly surprised to run into it at the Goodguys 16th Southwest Nationals. This nicely built Olds was a featured project of Popular Hot Rod and has a laundry list of mods which have turned this big girl into a corner carver. At its heart, Project Olds is powered by a 461 CI Olds motor that was built by SAM Racing and puts the power out through a Hurst Driveline Conversions TKO 600 transmission and Strange Engineering S60 rear axle. With a Viking and Detroit Speed Coil-over conversion and Baer Brakes on all four corners this thing is nimble and handles well enough to get an invite to the 2013 Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational. I know that my Cutlass doesn’t move like this think, maybe some day ;o).
