NASC Nationals Custom & Hot Rod Photos from Sunday

Recommended Posts

Sunday saw one of the best car shows of the year for me which conveniently enough is less then 2 miles from my front door, It's the 38th NASC Street Rod Nationals, every year your guaranteed to see something different and this year was no exception.

 

How about a pick up Ford Consul for starters?

This Transit was really mint, It sounded like a V6 or V8 when it drive out but it's listed as a 1.6 and looked like a pinto?.

Enjoyable thread is enjoyable.

 

At first I thought this unknown custom...

7881088840_83884f501f_c.jpg

 

...might be a 55/56 Packard Patrician with a considerable amount of bodywork. I'm less certain when comparing the red custom with a base model on Google. Maybe it's Packard parts blended on to another car instead?

Nice shots. I quite like YUK (except for the bar on its bum) and compared to the standard one for sale in Holland (well I think it's sold now after quite some time) at around 8k euro it's not too dear... Love that A40 too.

Now this is where things get weird... This Land Rover is like marmite, apparently it's based on a VW Beetle chassis and listed as a 3.0 V6.

Once again a superb set Trig, thanks for making the effort to post them here :D

 

I wouldn't cross the road to see most of the British rods, something seems so wrong about the proportions and the wheels, but I'm a great fan of 40s US pick-ups. I would be happy to any of the ones there home, but particularly this one :

However, sometimes you just can't beat stock, especially when it look like this 8)

Thanks Trig! I've seen that A40 before, on the A40 club's own site, but it's always worth another visit, it looks very well done. As does the PA, although I don't think it quite works, somehow. Something just looks wrong; start with the wheels, perhaps, and play it by ear from there. Wonder if the builder of the 2-door Sceptre was trying to copy? For me, that actually looked better.

 

Excellent collection, as always.

Sadly not Paul, I saw it first at the same show last year where it was showing as untaxed since 1978, I think it was a barn find which had the Volvo lump fitted to get it back on the road, i really like it myself.
