Default 1958 C1 Gets the Hot Rod Treatment from Alloway

1958 C1 Gets the Hot Rod Treatment from Alloway
By Matt Overstreet

When Larry Olson wanted to build a car for his wife, he went to the same guy that built him a prestigious award winning roadster, Bobby Alloway.

I'm sure not to everyone's taste but Bobby Alloway builds one heck of a car. Amazing attention to detail. Flawless body and paint work as many of his cars are black which shows everything. While not for me a beautiful car in typical Alloway style.

I'd have no hesitation in parking this car in my garage Magenta interior compliments the car beautifully.

I have to say I find it more than a little odd that members on CF would call this 'fugly'! This car is a lot of things but fugly or ugly isn't one of them.

I'm a real Alloway fan, but I hope Mrs. Olson doesn't have any speed bumps in her neighborhood.
