Goodguys All American Get Together. Photos!

Went to the Goodguys All American Get together today, you know, that is a darn good show. I like the mixture of all the styles. Here are some photos..

My son and his buddy driving a very interesting go cart amusement set up! The guy says he does about a grand$ a day!
http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/a...cs/Gocarts.jpg

Neat Buick powered T


Very cool COE....NICELY done!
http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/a...Basics/COE.jpg

And the "load" on it, VERY nice Olds.
http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/a...cs/COEload.jpg

An original Stude Avanti! Very cool! We are talking Stude motored here.
http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/a...ics/Avanti.jpg

This truck was worth the admission fee, VERY well done and very cool.



I had one of these Austins once, just like this A-100.
http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/a...ics/Austen.jpg

Very highly modified 56 Chevy (at least a few parts were from a 56 Chevy I guess).
http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/a...cs/56Chevy.jpg

I think the hood thingies ruined it.
http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/a...Chevyfront.jpg

If someone where to tell me they were doing this, I would say it won't "work". But for some reason these late beds look darn good on these 55ish Chevy pickups.
http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/a...Chevytruck.jpg

Interesting paint....
http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/a...cs/55F-100.jpg

Where's the flag man when you need him?


How about a 1955 Chevy "airport limo"?
http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/a...irportlimo.jpg

This may look familiar here at Hotrodders.....


And the motor.....

Chip and Sam Foose built that car, there isn't a single thing unmodified on it. The owner drives it a lot, it has been on the Power Tour at least once.

I worked on this car when it belonged to the guy who had it built. It's owned by someone else now..


Buick 425/th400
The body is a steel 27, on a 32 frame, IIRC the body is stretched a few inches at the panel behind the door. The majority of the car was built by Ron Attebury, while he was in Morgan Hill. It has a cool torsion bar front spring that works off those levers that stick out from the frame horns. The bars run down the inside of the frame rails to adjusters that are just under the firewall. Ron did some real neat fab work to fit all that stuff in there. Howdy Ledbetter did the upholstery ..It is a really fun car to drive.

Later, mikey

I thought I had seen it somewhere. They had a big problem with the undercarriage. It was up on a jack and the guy was pulling bolts out of the rear suspension.

That isn't a Stude with an Elcamino roof, it is an Elcamino with a Stude front sheet end and quarters grafted on. The whole front was glass, I have to assume so were the quarters. It really looked like a kit conversion. I have never seen it marketed, but may be it is new?

It worked "OK" in my opinion.

It was a neat car. I was taken by how much it looked like my brothers car! Not to say it was copied, they are all just traditional touches. But I had one of those brain teases where I am standing there going "I thought he wasn't coming to this" for a split second.

I just went to the link with the 56, ahh of course, I remember that car. The top being on threw me. I still think those hood thingies ruined it.

Cool tri power air cleaner set up.

Very cool and very original air cleaners. They must restrict air flow somewhat I would think?? Maybe they whistle and play tunes at certain speeds.

Is it just because I'm outdated? ...That car's lower 2/3rds is such a statement on true old school customizing...and details I've never seen, like the tail lights and grille bar covering the park lights. It just looks slick and classy....EXCEPT when you look at the dumb-arse Prowler style windshield and the incredibly out of place hood louvers. I guess everyone gets some brain fade at times.

Maybe none of his workers dared to suggest it wasn't the best idea, while they were building it. That blending of new-to-old NEVER works. These guys refuse to believe it can't work....but it doesn't, and never will. If we wanted a modern looking car, we'd customize a 2008. To me it looks like the dopey late 80sT-bird's with the 49 ford "kit".

Loved the perfect chop shoebox, first pic Style & class
and also the nail powered T
