WE finally got to a show! Sunday saw the A602’s holding their annual Autorama with loads of incredible custom builds, live music, great food and tons of custom classic fans. Our chopped custom Cortina was let out for the day and fit right in amongst all the builds, it was very well received and got people talking, which must mean we’re doing something right.
The A602’s asked us to give out an award so we came up with the Skull & Pistons Garage Car Porn Award, however we weren’t quite prepared for how hard it would be to pick just one build. Whenever we see custom builds we know how much time, effort and money has gone into them, they really are an extension of the driver’s personality. Just the fact that people have chosen to go off-piste style wise and shun the norm deserves an award in our book. Anyway, we had to choose one and so we chose this 59 Chevy custom pickup truck… This was really our cup of tea when it comes to custom style, very clean, stylish, tasteful and full of rock ‘n’ roll attitude. This truck was an absolute stunner – pure car porn.
We were also asked to select the best car from the A602’s club selection, again a near impossible task, we love them all! However after much deliberating we ended up choosing another Chevy truck, this one was very different. Look at that amazing patina and the engineering that had gone into this beast was insanely cool – well done Frank! Love it.
Here are a few more beauties from the Autorama Show, we forgot to take the good camera so these are just iPhone snaps but the cars speak for themselves. Also Make sure you check out the A602’s they’re a really friendly street and strip rod group, full of knowledge and love for the custom classic scene. Holding regular meets and cruises these guys are loads of fun, get on it folks!…
