The photo doesn't do this car justice. The flames that are ghosted into the ENTIRE car body are amazing. I would love to own this car.
There was another car at the event that simply blew me away and I wish I had taken a picture of it (it rolled us on their way out). It was a burgundy Corvette with ghosted flames that had a holographic effect. They were so life-like. And they seemed to 'lick' as the light changed.
I remembered that originally, the hood ornaments had an actual function other than decoration. They were the temperature/pressure gauge. This is on a Ford Model A Speedster.
This was one of my favorites at the show. Absolutely beautiful. I am a big fan of just about any car Foose designs. I was talking to my uncle about the Foose/Shelby/Roush Mustang earlier, but didn't expect to see one of his cars here. Actually, there was another Foose car at the show on display at the Mother's Wax tent.
Show or Fair?
I was walking by this when I realized that the angle I was looking from gave the scene a nice 'look'. It kind of made me think of an old car ad, the family parking their new car and going to the state fair. The booths kind of give it a fairground look.
I wouldn't say yes. A German tourist came up to me as I was taking this and asked me if this would be allowed on the road. I honestly don't know. Remember the movie 'Carbon Copy' with George Segal and Denzel Washington? George asks Denzel "How much did you pay for this car?" and he replies, "14 dollars and a record player." "You were robbed!"
Hell Hath No Fury
Probably because it was parked at Daytona. Beautiful car. Truly a land yacht.
Mustang at Daytona
I had to get down on the ground to take this. I absolutely hated seeing that ugly bus (that's still partially visible) in the background. I have lived here for more than a quarter century, yet this was the first time I had been inside Daytona's track. The last raceway I had been in was the old Riverside International Speedway in Moreno Valley, California (a distant memory and a shopping center now) when my dad worked there.
One of many 'hot' rods at the show. I'm torn as to whether I like this classic style of flaming more than the more realistic flames like Mike Lavalle does. Lavalle has some incredible flame jobs out there.
