Indy Goodguys Post #2

We spent some time in the Gasser Corral before making our way to the vendor area. This '55 Chevy gasser was VERY kool.
Snap-On tools had the coolest display @ the show. Lots of cool samples of their tool and toolbox lines to look at, but also a couple of cool custom one-off vehicles that you could get "up close" and personal with. The Snap-On Glowmad is a custom '75 Chevrolet Nomad that uses ALOT of tools to carry a Snap-On theme throughout. Notice that the side trim and tailgate trim are made from Snap-On wrenches.
And check out the underbelly of the car. A custom from was built to include large crossed wrenches. Heck, even the wheelie bars are made from wrenches!
Another cool part of the Snap-On Tools display was the custom chopper built by OCC. I can remember watching the boys build this bike on American Chopper...(man, I miss that show.) The same themes of the Glowmad are carried through on the Snap-On Chopper, with uses of Snap-On tools and custom parts to resemble tools. Check out the cool custom wrench wheels.
It's back to pictures of Hotrod National participant cars tomorrow! Come back and visit.
