In 2011 I decided to get rid of the Genny look in the rear. I chopped six inches off the rear fenders added a roll pan and recessed the license plate and added LED tail lights to give it more of a street rod look!

Showing my grandsons how we do a BURNOUT!
I Put this video together in memory of an old hot rod friend of mine “Hot Rod Mike“.It features my car With Mike Love From the Beach Boys Using It As A Photo Shoot Back Drop At A Concert At The Palm Beach Fairgrounds. It also features a lot of Hot Rod Mike’s other friends great cars. We will always miss this great guy.
So, will the Grandson be allowed to do burnouts with Grandpa in the passenger seat? In time I'm sure. Noise, smoke, and speed all get kids addicted to cars. How do I know? A neighbor took me for a ride in his hot rod and he did the same thing to me.......A LONG LONG TIME AGO!! Great looking ride....hats off to your skills.
