One of the great things about hot rods is that they can connect you to other people all over the world. I have a good friend that lives in Australia and is a car nut too.. He was kind enough to share a few pics of his work, including project cars belonging to a some of his customers.
We start off with this Fury, which was originally a 1957 yellow Fury, bought in Texas, then transported and transformed into this 1958 “Christine” Fury.
As you can see, it needed a little bit of love to get this transformation started.
Above is my friend James, hard at work. James happens to be a certified Rolls Royce painter and owned/started Brooks Motorcars in Oakland, CA, while living in the U.S.
The classic “Christine” red.
James provided us with a few more snaps of classic projects…
Why a closeup of the tire? James has another business in Australia called Mr. Mudguard where he supplies hot rods, trailers and other projects with fenders (mudguards).
This custom project is a favorite of mine. They used two fenders, the one to cover the tire and then one cut apart to make the connection to the mount.
Thanks to James for sending me pictures to show our readers how hot rodding is done in other parts of the world!
