Pike Peak International Raceway, 7 – 9 September 2001.
”And Now For Something Completely Different”
Custom cars and hot rods may not be to all tastes, some people love them, others dismiss them as cute but not
serious automobile statements, and others regard them with abhorrence.
If you take the latter stance look no further! For those with more liberal views enjoy the gallery!
Whatever your view, the creators cannot be denied having an unbelievable passion for their chosen form of
motoring enjoyment. Their artistic flair, technical ingenuity, engineering skills, the time and last but not least the
amount of money that they invest in a project are quite amazing. Such has been their influence that major
mainstream manufacturers have embraced a number of the regular styling cues into production vehicles and
concept cars, the Plymouth Prowler, Chrysler PT Cruiser and upcoming offerings from Ford and GM bear witness
For decades the customised car has been an integral part of American culture, initially with the youth of the
period. Since then those early generations have grown up, had children of their own, and even grandchildren, but
still they love their cars. Thus at events today you find a broad spectrum of age groups and social levels, and an
even wider choice of stunning craftsmanship to view. You will also find a selection of ”basket cases” in the auto
mart area to spark an idea for a project, should the bug bite.
