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.
Bob Palmer's 1955 Ford Thunderbird, The Golden Bird, was restyled by Clarkaiser in 1955.
Bobby Darrin's Dream Car was a total ground up custom car by Ron and Bob for Andy DiDia.

The Clarkaiser Custom Shop consisted of two legendary postwar customizers named Ron Clark and Bob Kaiser. Clarkaiser Custom Shop was located in Detroit, Michigan.
