Attention HotRodders: It doesn't get any better than this! A perfect blend of "old school" flavor featuring an ALL STEEL body with a perfect 3" inch chopped top, Crazy Purple w/Red Tinted Flames, Chrome Reverse Wheels and Baby Moons coupled with great modern engineering. All of this equals an extremely well built hotrod that is a pleasure to drive while the nostalgic look of the flames and bullet holes makes it a real head turner. It's all about the Newstalgia โ€“ Baby!
