Here are six that are kind of cool, from our Classy Chassis show in June.

The first is a Packard convertible, a class I was judging. My friend and I were going to judge the car pretty well because we both like the type. After studying the car for a second I told my friend that the GM tilt steering column was a nice touch. Walking around the car we saw under dash air,
GM disc brakes, power steering, and other stuff. It was a shame, cause if he had entered it in the modified class he would have done well.

What, you don't like pink? You should see what Mattress Mack in Houston did to his Testa Rosas.

You know, I been all these years thinking I really disliked that late Ghia, and then you show those photos. I'll have to re=think it.

I really like that rusty Bug.

Here's a luxury class Bug.

The reason the Prowler was shaped like that is the Chrysler executive on the project had a '34 Ford roadster.

I never would have thought of Mr Bean as a McClaren F1 driver.

Hey! Don't talk that way about Okie's ride. He has a job and spent his own money.

Well he did get a little help from the President because it runs on alternate fuel.

It runs on hope.

Schwimmers had reduction gearing on the rear axle and were four wheel drive. The gearbox was fitted with four forward speeds and reverse, plus an extremely low cross-country gear. With four wheel drive engaged - normal drive was by the rear wheels only - a tubular propeller shaft transmitted drive to the front wheels.
