Hot Rods & Customs at Cars in the Park, Saturday, August 20
Let's start with this glorious 1951 Custom Chevy Pick Up. Here are the facts gleaned from the matching sign propped up against the back passenger tire (that's the sharp-looking shape you can see sticking out from the right side of the truck): Blown 355 C.I. Small Block Chevy, Richmond Super T10 4 Speed, Bustom Chassis, Heidt's Independent Front Suspension, Ford 9" 4 Bar Suspension, Fiberglass by Shaw's Fiberglass, Paint by Gary Crisp, Upholstery by Custom Upholstery, Design by Alan Shaw of Shaw's Fiberglass, and Custom Built by Randy's Rod & Custom. A wonderful couple owns this beauty. My enjoyment of it brought big smiles to their faces. Brilliant flames everywhere. This has got to be one of my all-time favorite grills! A close-up of the origin of the flames, a fire-breathing dragon who lives under the hood. The Blown 355 C. I. Small Block Chevy.
