Automotive restorations always were things I loved seeing. There is just something about having every single part new or made new in an old car. Its like bringing new life to a car that already has a ton of soul. The Dodge D200 is such a unique looking truck itself, it really seemed like a no-brainer for ICON to sink their genius into it. Basically what ICON did was make a brand new truck on the inside and kept it original on the outside. Sporting a brand new dodge Ram power-train, custom interior, and tons of custom chassis mods this is no ordinary Dodge. Nothing was left untouched. And to poke at my soft spot they added a beautiful Triumph in the bed. Man, what I would do to own this combination.
Oddly enough I am really liking the styling of a bunch of the newer American cars. I guess it’s about time they took some styling cue’s from the Europeans. When I heard Fatlace was working on a Chevy Sonic for Sema it really got me interested to see what could be done to the car. I really liked how it came out. I’m glad they decided to go with a OEM+ look. With a wrap and 19inch(to my best knowledge) Rotiform’s the car looks surprisingly good. I wonder how popular these cars are going to get 10 years down the road when they become inexpensive.
I realized I really never did any coverage of this years Sema Show. Honestly there is just really too much to cover. Came across this video and thought it was very well done. So enjoy SOME of the great cars that were shown in this years sema show.
So Sema is here! And I am not attending, ugh. Next year, next year. So with every year many, many projects are being unveiled. One of the more anticipated for me was this hot rod from eGarage. I absolutely love when they introduce modern parts into very old cars. I also love the simplicity of old hot rods and how many different looks you can achieve from a small 2-seater car. Anyways, here is the video showing in great detail, 27 Unfvckwithable. As you can see A LOT of thought and work went into this rod.
Like I said in a previous post, Rotiform does it again. I’ve been waiting for someone to bag a A5 in the states for the longest. And of course it looks amazing of a beautiful set of Rotiform’s. I wish I had color info, because it’s sick! I’m pretty sure this has a matte white wrap and will be seeing more of it during Sema.
We all know the A8L isn’t a limo, but damn it’s freakin long. In other news, Rotiform does it again. They never cease to amaze. A8L on bags and a dope set of BWE’s . I guess we have to wait until the Sema show for it’s “official” unavailing. Until then here is one of the better pics. Added to my list of “must-build”.
I really wish Rotiform would update their site with ALL the wheels they offer.
