Ride of the Week | January 30th
Bill Kyzer's Model A
A good friend of Michael, Bill, started this Model A but asked for a lil help to get er done. We of course were happy to get our hands dirty and help out.
This all steel Model A features a 350 small block Chevy with a 350 Transmission.
We also added a 9" Ford Rear End, Dakota Digital Gauges, Vintage Air, Inc. AC and Heat, Ididit Steering, Pete and Jake's Hot Rod Parts front and rear suspension, Alumicraft Street Rod Grilles Roadster Grill Insert, Brookville Roadster, Inc. Grill Shell and Harold from Windsor Fabrications created a custom cowl vent shifter that we just love.
Street Rods by Michael handled paint and fabrication including that metal visor for the roof line.
All in all this was a great build and we are happy to share it with ya.
Ride of the Week | January 23rd
This car started out as a true hotrod dream. 700 plus horsepower, air induction system, weighing under 2500lbs... you name it. Our job was to make the dream a reality.... oh and ALUMINUM EVERYTHING!
The motor is a Steve Schmidt Racing Engine, a 434 Chevy Small Block with 4L60E Transmission with a CompuShift Gearbox and Lokar shifter.
We lengthened the frame in the front 4 inches and matched the frame horns for aesthetic appeal. The frame was also narrowed to 30" to keep the looks banging and the drive smooth.
The hood was lengthened 5" with a Lee Nottingham 33 Grill.
Street Rods by Michael, Inc handled all the fabrication and let our good friend, Gary Mizar, go to work on the paint.
Some of the other goodies on the Joker included 2 rows of 5" Louvers, Billet Wheels, American Autowire Wiring Harness, Classic Instruments Dash, Johns Industries, Inc. Rear End, Pete and Jake's Hot Rod Parts Aluminum Rear End and Rear Ladder Bars, Vintage Air, Inc. AC and Heat System and Ididit Steering.
We are very proud of everything we build but this, this was a fun build.
Ride of the Week | January 16th
2003 NSRA Give Away Car
When the NSRA approached us to build the annual Give Away Car, well, we jumped on it. Right away we knew we wanted to do something totally different than had been done before. After a few calls to our friends at Pete and Jakes, American Street Rod Design and of course, Gary Mizar, we had a plan.
This beauty packs a 347 Stroker Ford Motor, features Johns Industries rear end, Pete and Jakes front end and suspension, vintage air system, billet tail lights and brake lights and a ididit steering column.
Beyond all the parts, we lengthened her 4 inches and pitched the nose and put coil over shocks with tube axle in the front.
This car is still easily one of the most popular giveaway cars ever built and we are damn proud to have been a part of it.
Ride of the Week | January 9th
Dan Barbeau's 32' Ford Sedan
Dan purchased this '32 Ford Sedan from a fellow rodder that had originally purchased it from Street Rods by Michael. Dan brought it back to have us paint and finish the car.
This car features a Street Rods by Michael Chassis, Pete and Jake's Hot Rod Parts Front Suspension, Johns Industries Rear End, 350 Chevy Crate Motor with 700R4 Transmission, Pete and Jakes Triangulated 4 Bar, and a full Vintage Air, Inc. AC update.

Ride of the Week | January 2nd
Alan Riegler's 56' Truck
You ever wonder how projects get started well it usually starts like this, "Hey guys can you put a front end under my truck? Wow that looks great!!! Can you install air? What about paint? Can you do that too?"... and BOOM! a new ride comes together just like that.
We just about rebuilt the whole truck and we have a new friend. Al now has a mega bad ass 56 F100 and we are all happy. Thanks for the work Al.
Thanks to the teams at Heidts Hot Rod & Muscle Car Parts, Griffin Radiator Manufacturers, Vintage Air, Inc., SPAL Automovie Cooling Fans, and American Racing Wheels
