Thumbs up Hot-Rods by the master... Chip Foose

Certainly almost every1 in this forum knows about the legendary Chip Foose. Here are some of the cars that he has hot-rodded. All of them are up for auction and are intented to fetch $200,000+.









I especially like the one in which he has converted an old hearse into a motorbike carrier. Since it is designed to be big enuff for cruisers, sportsbikes should fit in easily as well.
Most of the donor cars are classics like Maserati and Buggati, hence, their new names - Foogati and Fooserati !!!

But, would you want to fit in a sports bike in such a hot rod? It would look out of place. I would rather carry a real chopper, that goes with the lines, and the theme of the hot rod.

May be an MV Agusta Brutale with the Foogatti, but definitely not a jap. sportsbike.

BTW, Good find - I have always loved his designs.

DROOOOLL Chip Foose never fails to amaze me. His skteching was one of the few reasons I watched Overhaulin'.

Yea, the bike carrier is my fav among this lot too.
