There is one day left to get to Gene Winfield's 3rd annual open house Custom and Hot Rod show

http://www.c-we.com/piranha/GeneWinfield.htm for a quick biography of Gene...

just 2 vehicles he has made that you are probably familiar with are the shuttle from the original tv show Star Trek, and the police vehicle "Spinner" from Blade Runner

Here is what it looked like at 10 am, and the people just never stopped arriving!
Folllowing are some of the cool customs that caught my attention, and this is just a quick sample, I took about 300 photos and have many more to post, but wanted you to get a look so if you feel like it you can get to Gene's tomorrow. The show is on from 10 am to 6 pm. Exit the hwy 138 at Backus Rd, head east about 1/2 mile and then south about a mile, park anywhere along the road.
















In and Out burger mobile restaurant was spotted on the 15 south of Los Angeles

•Cookout Trailers are booked on a "first come, first served" basis. We advise you to book your cookout a minimum of 3 to 4 months in advance. Longer lead times are always beneficial.

the odd design style of Paul Jaray, applied to a 1935 Maybach Streamliner coupe at the Paris Autoshow contrasted with the 1938 GAZ gl1


Above image from http://dieselpunks.blogspot.com/2010/06/perfect-streamline.html via: http://megamoto.tumblr.com/

Bottom photo was from Le Container I think.. not sure
Anyway, what a contrast of designs.. the Jaray at top was streamlined body, big cabin... opposite the GAZ below. Odd to have found these photos at about the same time.

if macho had a look, this might be it

This is the photography of Webb Bland, http://notbland.com/images/dodge/cult_challenger_srt8.htm and his photography is impressive, and so is this Challenger from Cult Motorsport

I found the above photo at http://www.ridelust.com/the-fastest-street-legal-cars-of-all-time/

http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2008/02/i-find-movie-custom-cars-fun-in-can-you.html was my last posting of the above photo, but it's necessary to post it along the top photo so you can see the interesting parts, like the blower, which the top photo doesn't show

An example of the cool vehicles that Bring A Trailer" has every day

Australian Charger Hemi Six Pack

Mercury Comet Cyclone

1965 Impala NASCAR racer

1959 Ferrari 250 GT California Spider, like the Ferris Bueller car
1957 BMW 503, like the Elvis post a couple weeks ago

Cord 813 Beverly

1922 Battistini coachwork Buick

1914 Hupmobile
So enjoy Bring A Trailer; http://bringatrailer.com/ there is no telling what will show up, last time I looked it was an SCCA racer Mustang from the late 60's, in need of restoration and then you'd be on the vintage racing circuit in great company!
