Anyone know who's car this is?

Hey I found this picture online a while back and I don't remember where I found it. The guy handbuilt the entire car from top to bottom and it won hot rod of the year award at some show. Any clues?

Don't remember his name

The owner is from Ontario Canada, and the photo was taken at the Syracuse Nats. I had a long conversation with the dude at the 2004 Nats. Was an industrial arts teacher by trade. He hand built the car in his garage over a period of several years. The man is a true craftsman and a pleasure to talk to. Told me he had no skills with aluminum before doing the car. The body is entirely hand formed aluminum panels. He also fabricated the suspensions, grill and interior. I think I have a couple of photos somewhere of the car. If I find them, will post.
