Cool Cobo Cars and Trophies

I saw this little rat rod at the Hunnert Car Pileup last fall. With its headers turned upside down, it definitely looks unique driving around!
Whether its the Motorama 1962 at Indy or the basement at Cobo, the traditional hotrods and ratrods are my favorites at area Autoramas.


How can you not like an old "service" truck with patina and wide whites?!?!

And speaking of patina....how about this cool Plymouth "more-door" wagon?

I've already mentioned that I'm a sucker for Divco Milk Trucks in a previous post, and I think those who have been reading Suede and Chrome for a while know that I also like the "out-of-the-ordinary"....so put those together and you would expect I would like something like this Divco converted into a pickup truck! (got to admit it was pretty cool.)

Another thing I really like about most traditional hotrod shows are the unique homebuilt trophies. I would love to have the time, means, and spare parts/wrenches/etc. to build similar trophies for our club events...these things are truly unique works of art.
