Sid Kayman's 1932 Ford Roadster of St. Louis, Missouri. Sid bought the car in 1944 or 1945, and it had already been channeled and hot-rodded when he bought it. By 1956 or 1957 the car had found its way to Fort Worth, Texas. Don Newhouse came across it in a backyard in a local neighborhood. He bought it and got it back on the road again. It changed hands a couple of times before it went into storage in the 1960. In 1994 Karl came across the car. He bought the old hot rod. Karl rebuilt it, changing it to his own vision of a hiboy. The build was completed in 2002.
Frank Livingston's 1949 Chevrolet Fleetline, the Caribbean II, of San Leandro, California. Frank's fourth 1949 Chevrolet was built as a recreation of his first 1949 Chevrolet, the Caribbean. The recreation was restyled by OZ Welch, and the build was completed in 2002.
Larry Ernst's 1952 Ford Convertible of Toledo, Ohio. Restyled by Clarkaiser Custom Shop, the first version of the car, named "Pharaoh's Pacer", was completed in 1955. Larry was a Roman Catholic priest who later became a monsignor. Owning a radical and famous custom car put him at some odds with senior members of the church, so he showed the car under the fake name Grant Macklin. The second restoration of the Ford was completed in 2002.
Richard Zocchi's Second 1962 Pontiac Grand Prix was restyled by Lucky 7 Custom for Richard Zocchi of Walnut Creek, California. The car was built as a chopped clone of a 1962 Pontiac Grand Prix that Gene Winfield restyled for Zocchi in 1962. The build was completed in 2002.
Junichi Shimodaira's 1930 Ford Model A Tudor Sedan of Nagoya, Japan. The car, known as Rod Riguez was built by Junichi at his shop Paradise Road. The first version of Rod Riguez was completed in December of 2002.
