Rob, you are an extremely talented guy with impeccable taste and a great eye. I'm not a restomod fan, but all of your builds shine like jewels. Stunning. Great job!!!

The shop is empty!

All are stuning, but I really love that 57, and if I had the spare coin, I'd bid on it. Good Luck

Agree with Mecum being all over the place and certainly on the low side. I hope all those with the money are heading to Scottsdale.

Thanks guys! We are very proud of them, they all drive amazing but the twin turbo Split-Window pulls like a freight train!

Good luck Rob! Im sure you will do great since all of your cars are in the showcase section. I got screwed to the average section. Apparently i did not kiss enough *** for 6 months.

Ill post my experience here afterwards. I'm pretty pissed off currently. They told me to bring my own stanchions last night. Meanwhile, there is a 67 convertible with a stock frame and bolt on suspension in the showcase section.

Chris,
Been there with the same frustrations on past experiences, but I still believe the buyer will pay for quality, Joe's 58 that brought 400k wasn't in the showcase he was in tent 8 I believe.

I expect your car to do very well, my suggestion is to personally represent the car, which I'm sure you will do, it seems to have made all the difference for us in the past.

that’s all I can do at this point. I’ll see you there!
i just don’t understand the game! You have a lot of cars going, but why they would place stock frame cars that these owners are calling “pro touring restomods” in the “display case” is beyond me!

Default 63' Fuelie unit

I have not been on the forum for a long time.
I'm glad someone was able to produce a replica fuelie intake for the LS motors.
Just wish that was available when I did my car.
Jim :-)
