Vintage Firecracker

Someone took his passion to an extreme and made this car his baby.

This classic car was parked in the circular drive so the owner could watch a youth soccer match. Keeping out of a side-by-side parking space avoided the possibility of dings and scratches from a neighboring door swinging open and scratching it up.

I made today’s image from this angle to include the whitewall tires, detailed body decals and the amazing chrome “teeth” on that front grille. The detailing and explosive color on this car reminded me of the toy hot rods that my own boys used to collect and play with; this vehicle runs, and is life-sized.

Please post that in the comments for others if you know the year and or make!
