I hadn’t seen this before. Too cool.
You know that To-Do list up there? There’s a part where it says: Buy diff for S13.
That NEEDS to happen in time for winter. I want to go street drifting again! I miss it so much! I haven’t been since the night I ran my coupe into a curb and nearly went to jail. How fun that was.
Must run in the family, I guess.
In case you’re wondering. The car is a 1956 Simca Aronde. Since my father (and my mother for that matter) is French, his hot rod platform at the time would have to be a French car. This car was built in the mid 1980s and created an uproar in Europe, becoming the most iconic French hot rod of it’s time.
The car was on several automotive magazine covers, including Autoweek!
It was finally shipped over to the good ole US of A to compete with the American muscle we know of out here.
Sadly, it has sat in storage since the early 1990s rotting away, but last year my father pulled it out and decided it was time to resurrect the famous “Omlette Baveuz” .
I cannot wait to drive it! On top of that, my dad is babysitting this sweet 1932 Ford HighBoy.
Now just wait till I find a buyer for the S13 and pick up my 54 Chevy. Yum!
Over the past year, my interest in classic cars has drastically increased. This might be because of my dad’s 56 Simca Aronde chopped-top hot rod and my constant attendance to hot rod shows. My interest blew up after attending yet another El Mirage event after having been absent for years. Since then, I’ve been obsessed with listening to late 40’s and 50’s music all the time and fantasizing about owning a gas-guzzling, slammed and rusted rat rod.
I took a big liking to the 1954 Bel Air/210 and have also been considering selling my S13 to start a 54 Chevy project. These cars are gorgeous.
Knowing me though, I’d probably end up making it look like this.
Which I wouldn’t mind.
