Back in March 2010 I participated in my first run of guest-posts for Build Month on Speedhunters. One of the cars I chose to highlight was a 1951 Kaiser Manhattan dropped over an aired-out ’95 Caprice chassis. You can read the original post here. Earlier this year I did a follow-up post, showcasing some updates on the now blue sled, click here to read. Well, the final chapter of the build is finally here, the Kaiser is complete and it looks fantastic. Check out a few new images below and re-aquaint yourself with the build thread, it’s 54 pages long and full of quality. Thanks to Geoff for the heads up.
I’m pretty sure that the majority of you who read this blog also read Speedhunters. If that’s the case, you no doubt would have seen that I recently contributed to Build Month. This is the second year in a row that I have been asked to guest post, and I am very grateful to be able to do so. I like to re-post my contributions on my own blog, mainly for archiving purposes, so here is the first one for 2011. You can read the post on Speedhunters here.
I’m guessing most of you already read Speedhunters, but in case you haven’t checked it lately, I’m going to be doing some guest blogs this month since March is “Builds/Previews Month”. Firstly I’d like to thank Rod Chong for giving me the opportunity, it’s most appreciated and I can’t express my gratitude enough.
I’m going to post up the builds here too, so here’s the first one that just got published in the last 24hrs or so. You can see the story on Speedhunters by clicking here.
The first build I want to show you is known as the “Kaiser Drag’n build”. It’s a 1951 Kaiser Manhattan owned and built by Keith who resides in Tempe, Arizona.
