In this video from the 2020 NSRA Street Rod Nationals held in Louisville Ky I caught up with the Custom Hot Rod “Driftwood”.To start ..You have to understand that what You see in this video is all custom.It looks like something that came from Ford back in the day…But Ford never made anything like this.
Everything is handmade.They started with a chassis for a 1929 Ford and cut it up to make it work for what they were building.Debuted at the 2020 Detroit Autorama it was a Great Eight winner there.When I shot this video it was in the Builders Showcase at the 2020 NSRA Street Rod Nationals.Both BIG honors.
Under the hood is a Ford Flathead but even it has been modified to accept some custom caboators.Two of them!! and finished to a very high level..The owner tells Me although He lives in kentucky He’s a beach Guy.The interior shows that influence.The front seat is fashioned after a bench you would find at the beach with custom gauges that include palm trees.
Wheels are a personal choice and no one set will please everyone.Anyone that doesn’t think true wires with real knockoffs aren’t cool.Should never be a judge at a car show..Just sayin.lol.Driftwood the custom Street Rod from the 2020 NSRA.//ScottieDTV
