I believe this is the absolute rarest car in my photo collection.  Del Huyser from western Michigan.  Apparently, he had this car built, and put up for sale upon completion...at least that's what my understanding is (I know - one or more of you probably drove it!!! '<img'> ) .  Anyhoooo, hope you guys like - I think it was one gorgeous machine (I really liked the work on the front Halibrands).  BTW - this was Martin, MI 1974.  Michael Beach photos

 


While I didnt care for the Mavericks in their street production guise, a slight amount of body distortion made them really cool, especially with injectors or a blower peeking out through the windshield.  Having a Tae Kwon Do martial arts school as your sponsor is a first tome

Always loved the "Custom Body" entries...this one especially.  Guess it's because I saw it run the most.

Paul Smith, Martin, MI 1984


Mr. Smith, Martin, MI 1985 - now sporting the trendy and quite stylish "cow-catcher" nose extension.  :P
I haven't been this happy since I had two forks at the all-you-can-eat buffet!!!
