Crate Cars

You’ve heard of crate engines, but what about a whole crate car? For a few years now, Dynacorn Classic Bodies have been producing all-steel replacement bodies for the ’67 & ’69 Chevy Camaro, ’47-’50 & ’52-’54 Chevy pickup (cab only), and the 67-’70 Ford Mustang.

Prices start from $8,995 for the pickup cab, up to $16,500 for the ’70 Mustang (USD).

If you’re lusting after some audio/visual entertainment of the automotive persuasion, then look no further. Their video’s feature everything from DIY, product reviews, car reviews, and how-to’s.

With a hint of Aussie humour to keep things light hearted, I’m sure you’ll all enjoy what the Mighty Mods team has to offer.

Foose Design & Gaffoglio Family Metalcrafters Shop Tour

Chip Foose, a true legend in the world of car craftsmanship. If you’ve seen the TV show Rides or Overhaulin’ then you know exactly what I’m talking about. If you haven’t seen them, go out and buy all of them. Chip has built multiple Autorama Riddler award winners, first learning his craft from his father Sam Foose, also a highly decorated car builder. Not only can he build a flawless car from scratch, he can also draw like no one else.

The following link from Jalopnik takes us on a tour of Foose Design headquarters and then the Gaffoglio Family Metalcrafters shop. I’ll link you to the gallery because the main link doesn’t load all the pictures. Here’s a sample;
