I started two more truck builds for some contests this year. After my 50 model chevy I noticed the ratrod/shop truck style seemed to be very popular among the judges at several different shows. The 55 cameo is going to be a simple quick build. The 64 on the other hand is going to be fairly detailed. As for now I am just going to stick with the stock wheels unless I can find some 20 inch smoothies. I may just make my own if I can find a wheel/tire that is the right size. The are both going to have the weathered look.
I've been wanting to do a gasser so I figured it was time to build one. I had this 55 nomad sitting on the shelf for a little while and thought I'd put it to use. If anyone has seen this kit the frame is going to require some scratch work but it shouldn't be that bad. Here's a quick mock up from last night to give you an idea of what its going to look like. If anyone doesn't understand the door lettering its just a little trailer park boys humor from the tv show. For some reason I cant post pictures from photobucket so I guess the attachments will have to do for now.
I thought I would post this under glass since its now completely finished. I took it to derby city shoot out this past weekend and took 3rd place in the rat rod class. I also won best rat rod at a local show several months ago. So now its on to the next build. I'm going to start a 37 ford pickup real soon.
