Hot Rods and Custom Dreams

The local car show is nothing special, mostly a mix of stock muscle cars from the 60's and 70's. There are a few true classics (the showroom condition '58 Eldorado convertible- for sale for a cool $135k) but the custom cars are the "show-offs" of the event: chopped and lowered, true artistry in color and form. The topper last week was this Pontiac:



The iridescent green paint job made it into the interior as well as the engine compartment:



This definitely is crossing the line into car-porn:



Ooooh, yeah baby!

Whoa, that Pontiac is green car-porn, indeed. Was it a 1952? My family always bought Pontiacs - seems like people used to be loyal to certain car brands..

I don't really know what year- a 53 or 52, but I wonder if there's much of the original car left, it might all be aftermarket parts on a modern chassis.

Man! That engine compartment looks so bare compared to modern engines...
