National Champion 69' Boss 429 Mustang!

This is the second Boss 429 we shot for Tom Hernquist - known to us as “the red one”. This is a National award winning car and has been featured in magazines and on credit cards. Tom sold “the white one” we shot last year at the Barrett-Jackson auction. But he’s not selling this one, he’s keeping it for himself! Tom is an awesome guy and a very lucky man! He is in the process of restoring a 3rd Boss 429. Apparently the 3rd one is gonna be “the black one”. We can’t wait to shoot it too!

Russ Gillespie's '55 Chevy Pickup

This is my Dad’s truck which he has just recently overhauled. Dad went out to Bonneville for the 60th anniversary of Speed Week and that inspired this wild creation. I helped him design the two-tone paint scheme with flip-flop scallops. The wheels are actually 15" with 17” and 19” Full Moon’s mounted with Zeus buttons fastened to 15” moons underneath. We shot Dad’s truck earlier this year, I’m finally getting it up on the site. Check out the full gallery of images by clicking here. I also included his old showboard so you could see the before and after.

Rob Ida's Latest Works of Art!

We are extremely proud to present our photos of these two amazing custom street rods. Both of these cars have been just recently finished by Ida Automotive in Morganville, NJ. Rob Ida and his dad Bob have been building some of the most innovative, wild, immaculate, ultra-custom cars for decades - and both of these cars represent their best efforts. The 33’ Willys “Roaster” was completely built from scratch. Starting with a pile of sheet metal and some billet stock the artists at Rob Ida Concepts sculpted this masterpiece which features a hand formed body and fenders, removable top, one-off wheels with integrated custom brakes, tilt-away steering column, and a blown 600HP Cadillac NorthStar (which is notable because it, along with the tires, are the only things “store bought” on this car). There are truly too many things to list about this car and words don’t do it justice anyway, so check out the pics here.



This 37’ Chevy Coupe called “Black Opal” is a classy, low slung baggin, twin-turbo sportin’, custom dub rollin’ stunner that is bringin’ sexy back to street rodding in a big way! And I think our model friend Heather Childs helps with the “sexy” part for sure. But seriously, I love seeing street rods built by relatively young guys like Rob using modern components, with contemporary influences. Be sure to notice the sculpted fender accents, hand formed brass trim, one-off wheels, headlight and taillight treatments, motor through the hood, custom dash with billet gauge cluster, etc. Best thing you can do is check out these pics yourself here.
