“GT-39” ‘39 Ford DeLuxe Convertible
Cindy & Mike Warn
Aurora, Oregon

Featured Builder: Tim Divers: Divers Streeet Rods: Startup, Washington

Tucked away in the Cascade foothills of Western Washington State, you'll
hear the sounds of metal grinding mixed with AC-DC crackling over the
radio. This is where Tim Divers of Divers Street Rods, Inc. and a talented
group of gear-heads create.

Raised in Fall City Washington, Tim's young years were spent working at
his cousins Model Garage. Along the way building his own hot rods such
as a 1960 Chevy Pickup and a 1970 Chevelle, which was later raffled off on
a Seattle Radio show for Cherry-Cola.

Divers Street Rods, Inc. has become a competing source in the world of
rods. The success behind Tim with Divers Street Rods, Inc. can be found
through Tim's own personal integrity. “I would not, under any
circumstance, allow a vehicle to leave my shop unless I was willing to put
my family in that car. Safety first.” The tag-line for Divers Street Rods, Inc.
is: a) Think out of the box b) Dare to be different c) If you're not living on
the edge, you're taking up too much room. Divers' customers range from
the East Coast to the West, including the Hawaiian Islands; returning again
and again for this type of performance and the knowledge that the end
product will not only be pleasing to the eye but safe...and 'outrageous'.

The GT39 was originally built by Divers back in the 80's when it was
featured in Rod Action as “Warn's Weekender”. Twenty-some years later
owner Cindy Warn decided it needed a face-lift. This started in 2006, but
had to take a backseat to her husband Mike's project.

In 2008 Divers Street Rods, Inc. took Mike's project, a 1960 Rambler with a
2002 Ferrari powered motor to the Detroit AutoRama Show. “Ferrambo”
took the industry by surprise with its ingenuity, craftsmanship and
creativity, walking away with the coveted Ridler award.

After the show work focused back to Cindy's GT39. Re-done with a Ford GT
Motor under the hood, which lead into a stretch here, a nip and tuck there,
resulting in only 20% of the original Ford tin was left. A complete body
modification that has resulted in an absolutely stunning street rod.

Divers Street Rods, Inc. continues to create, the next projects due out of
the foothills are a '54 Chevy with an all aluminum big block, a '57 Cadillac
Brougham with a Duramax diesel, and a '72 Volkswagen Bus with a Subaru
STI motor (yes, you read that correctly).

All these these projects and more can be viewed at

“Super Wasp” 46 Hudson Pickup
Bob Bruhn
Los Olibos, California

From the small California town of Los Olivos comes Bob Bruhn's 46
Hudson Pickup dubbed "Super Wasp".

All told it took three years to complete, but the time and effort was well
worth the result. The truck is a true custom from the TCI frame up.
All the modifications were done in steel, no fiberglass was used. The cab
was stretched seven inches and coupe doors were added with hidden
hinges. The windshield was laid back approx two inches and the top
chopped 1.5 inches. Drip rails were molded into the roof. The hood was cut
into five pieces, pie cut, and reassembled. Then the unique twin tunnel
entry to the shotgun blower scoop was added. The front fenders were
extended, welded to the cab and the headlights frenched. The grille is a
one-off custom designed by Bob and machined from billet aluminum. The
bed was shortened eighteen inches and the rear fenders widened four
inches. Matching fenders were used inside the bed to finish the tubs
housing the huge 16" wide rear tires. The whole interior from the dash and
console to the seat surround is all hand fabricated from steel. The running
gear consists of a 500 cid Big Block Chevy sporting an 871 blower topped
with Hilborn injection. This monster spins a 4L80E tranny backed by a Gear
Vendors overdrive and a Speedway Engineering quick change rear end
drives the tires.

One last thing, everyone who heard about it said, "Bob, you CAN"T put the
tail lights in the exhaust! They'll melt!" Well Bob's got news for 'em, go
have a look!

“Hem Rod” 32 Ford Rod Sedan
Don Smith
Mansfield Texas

Featured Builder: Eric Peratt: Pinkee’s Rod Shop: Windsor Colorado

After graduating from college and working at General Motors for six years,
Eric Peratt realized his true passion was building cars, not being behind a
desk at a car company. With the completion and sale of a 1933 Chevy
Woody Eric built in a three-car garage, Pinkee’s Rod Shop was on its way.
“Selling the ‘33 Chevy allowed me to buy some essential equipment and
relocate to Colorado which is where I wanted my family and hot rod shop
to be”, says Eric. Once in Colorado, Eric built an 1800 sq. ft. shop at his
home and completed the 1998 Detroit Autorama Ridler Award winner – the
1933 Ford roadster “Comet”. In 1998, Pinkee’s incorporated and became
official. Since then, Eric moved Pinkee’s to a scenic area in northern
Colorado with views of the Rocky Mountains to the west and the Eastern
Plains. The current shop now covers 10,000 sq ft with state-of-the-art
equipment and a new Haas CNC Machining Center (Almost Famous
Design) for creating one off, detail pieces that Pinkee’s is known for.
Pinkee’s has recently started a product line including 32 sectioned frame
rails, crossmembers, spring clamps and motor mounts.
Eric and the crew at Pinkee’s have been recipients of many prestigious
awards in the hot rod industry beginning with the Ridler award in 1998.
Some of the other noteworthy awards are: Goodguys Trendsetter, Grand
National Roadster Show Builder of the Year, Goodguys Street Rod of the
Year, Goodguys Custom Rod of the Year, Chip Foose Design Excellence
Award and many Goodguys top 5 awards with numerous cars including
Hemrod is a heavily modified 1932 Ford Tudor Sedan sitting on a Pinkee’s
sectioned deuce chassis. Hemrod has one off real knock off wheels and
many other one off detail parts on the car. A 392 Chrysler Hemi powers
Hemrod with a TKO 600 5 speed transmission. Hemrod is owned by Don
Smith from Mansfield, TX. Don is a former drag racer that ran the Pro Stock
Truck Series in the early 2000’s.
The same determination, persistence, teamwork, quality employees and
perfection that Eric, his wife Cristin, and all the crew have put into building
Pinkee’s Rod Shop goes into every car, whether it’s just adding A/C to a
car or building a dream car from the ground up.
You can see many of the cars that Pinkee’s has built and is currently
working on at or in person in Colorado –
stop by and see us anytime.

“UNO” “Custom Chopper Motorcycle”
Dalton Walker
Hanford, CA
 Split Image Kustoms, Hanford, CA

Painters: Dion Giuliano’s Kal Koncepts, and Craig Fraser’s Air Syndicate

Dalton, 30yrs. old, welding comes naturally having been raised and
working side by side with his father since 13yrs. old. in their own welding
and fabrication shop, Walkers Welding in Laton Ca., and started his side
business Split Image Kustoms (s.I.k. Motorcycles). He is known locally for
several modified and air bagged trucks that have appeared in several
different magazines since 2000, and more recently motorcycles. He has
gained a lot of recognition as one of a few welders that build their own
frames and parts. His first bike "UNO" took 3yrs. to build. It's simplicity is
unique and the paint is flawless. The paint was was done by his good
friends at Kal Koncepts & Air Syndicate by Dion Guilliano and Craig
Frasier. Last fall Dalton took UNO to Las Vegas for Bikefest and won 1st.
place in the Radical Division, which landed him an invitation to Artistry In
The Iron Competition this past year. UNO went on to compete at the
Easyriders shows in Los Angeles and Sacramento where he won both in
the Evo Radical and Best Paint categories. UNO was shot by world famous
motorcycle photographer "Michael Lichter" and is due to be in an
upcoming Easyriders Magazine. UNO has also appeared in several
magazines such as Cycle Source, Low Rider, Thunder Press, Air Brush
Action, Back Street Heroes, Street Truck, and Street Choppers. UNO was
displayed at the 2010 SEMA show in the IAWATA paint gun booth. Dalton
also took UNO and competed at the Hippy Killer Hoedown show where he
won the "Freddy Hernandez Award." Quite an honor coming from a living
legend such as Freddy Hernandez, an "old school builder." More recently,
Dalton took UNO to Long Beach to the Ultimate Builder Custom Show and
placed 3rd. in the Freestyle Division. Dalton is currently showing a new
build which has landed him a spot in the American Motorcycle Dealer
World Championship at Sturgis SD in 2012, and has won the David Mann
"Best of Show, and Cycle Source Awards." Dalton's old and new creations
can be followed at
Dalton Walker has been a welder, and fabrication specialist for his fathers
company for as long as he can remember. A few years ago, he started up
his own kustom fabrication shop, “Spit Image Kustoms” ( “SIK” for short)
At the same time he began working on a few choppers. Dalton did not want
to just modify up existing bikes, he wanted to create bikes that no one had
ever seen before, but with the old world craftsmanship, so that people
would be fooled into swearing the bikes were original production models.
Dalton not only hand fabricates the frames, bars, and engine mounts, but
the wheels, and front ends as well. When you see one of Dalton’s
creations, you would be hard pressed to point out what is factory, and what
is fiction. All of Dalton’s creations have been painted by Kal Koncepts/Air
Syndicate Inc. His favorite paint work is just as old school as his creations,
Kandies, patterns, and metalflake! Dalton has taken best of show at the
Easyrider events an unprecedented 4 times, with his blue chopper, and
gold bobber. Keep an eye out at Sturgis this year for the new stretched
“Denver” style chopper he is building for Craig Fraser of Air Syndicate.

Kal Koncepts/Air Syndicate, Bakersfield, CA
Dion Giuliano’s Kal Koncepts, and Craig Fraser’s Air Syndicate have been
working together for 20 years. While Dion specializes in fiberglass
fabrication, painting, and clearcoating, Craig is more known for
Airbrushing, Pinstriping, kustom graphics, and the fine art of the Kustom
Kulture. Between the two of them they have seen KKAS go through the
highs, and lows of the Kustom Kulture, and many changeds in the steyles,
and trends of the kustom paint industry. With more than 65 magazine
covers, and 350 features, Dion, and Craig have been able to stay on the
leading edge of kustom painting for the past three decades. Finishing up
their team for the past 6 years has been Brandon Lambie of Black Sheep
Kustoms. Between the three of them there is little that cannot by
kustomized, modified, painted, and airbrushed in their shop. Whether it be
a chopper for the Easy Rider show, Guitars for Fender, and Jackson, a full
blown drift car for HoK, or a set of Drums for Poison, Kal Koncepts/Air
Syndicate is always up to the challenge.

Paint to live, live to paint
Rice Fink started out as a cab of a 66 Subaru JDM caretaker’s truck, that
had been sitting behind Dion’s shop for over 20 years. One day Dion
literally decided he wanted to not only finish it, but to get it done in time for
SEMA. In three months this truck went from a frameless cab to the micro-
truck you see today. Powered by a Yamaha Genesis 600cc engine with an
independent sandrail rearend. The entire frame is handbuilt, as well as the
rear bed. It is fully hydraulic, sponsored by Reds, and even sports a full
stereo system sponsored by Sony. The paintjob is 100% House of Kolor
kandies, layered over flakes, and pearls. Usually showing in specialty
class, or radical, the Rice Fink has remained undefeated I the past dozen
shows. The theme of the Rice Fink is based on Ed, “Big Daddy” Roth’s Rat
Fink character. The truck itself is a tribute to the vehicles built by Big
Daddy, and the influence he had on the Kustom Kulture

“Drift Drag Car” 89 F/13 Sylvia Nissan
Natalia Guillano
Bakersfield, CA

Kal Koncepts/Air Syndicate Inc, Bakersfield, CA

Natalia Giuliano’s S-13 Driftcar started out as a humble late 80’s 240 SX.
After dropping in a RB-20 turbo charged Skyline powerplant, the car was
elevated to driftcar status. That still was not enough for Dion, and his
Daughter Natalia Giuliano. So he had VL Speed Pull the engine, upgrade
the turbo, intercooler, intake, and just about every other goodie on it, while
Brandon Lambie cut off, and swapped the entire front end for a Right Hand
Drive JDM set up. After putting it all together, with a new body kit, HoK
paint, wheels, megan racing brakes, Mob Shop roll cage, and Addictive
Audio sound system, the car was ready for Natalia to showcase it in the
Dub Booth at SEMA 2011. (Not a bad ride for a 15 year old who has been
addicted to Jr. Dragster Raging, and go karts since the age of 8)

“Milk Truck” 1916 Ford Milk Truck
Doug Weigel
Albuquerque NM

Doug Weigel's 1916 Ford Model T Milk Truck is one of this year's featured
cars at the Super Nationals.

This one-of-a-kind, all steel body milk truck was hand-built by the owner,
Doug Weigel. It is powered by a blown 350 Chevrolet engine, 400
transmission and 8.8 Ford rear-end. The aluminum milk jugs, breathers and
interior were also created by Doug.

Doug built this milk truck not only because he loves creating vehicles
similar to the ones in the early 1900’s and making them hot rods—he also
wanted to pay tribute to his family’s history of being in the dairy business
in Knoxville, Tennessee.

He designed this truck from the Model T trucks they used in his
Grandfather’s day. He used the original name and phone number from the
dairy he grew up on, in Knoxville. It was located on the French Broad River.

Doug lives and works in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and still has all of the
original, one-of-a-kind cars he has created (all in steel) over the past
several years. Weigel is a steel sculptor and prototype fabricator in
Albuquerque, New Mexico and farms in Woodruff County, Arkansas. He
started building street rods as a teenager in Knoxville, Tennessee. His
favorite cars were ‘28 and ‘29 roadsters. He would buy parts that he needed
at junkyards or would buy whole cars for $50 to get the parts he needed.
He worked on other peoples cars too, after school and working on the
family dairy farm. He also raced those cars two nights a week. He started
building cars again about twelve years ago after a long gap of time like
most guys who work and raise a family.

“Blind Side” 85 C/10 Pickup
Jason Hill
Lubbock Texas

“Blind Side” 85 C/10 Pickup
Jason Hill was called “the King of Squarebodies” by Truckin’ Magazine
over 8 years ago. His love for the 1981-87 square body Chevy pickups
comes from getting one to drive while he was in high school. Over the
years he has built more of this body style than we can count. He has
collected one of all the body styles available from the 80’s truck era – an
award winning super custom blazer that was won Best of Show awards
across the country and was a Street Trucks cover vehicle, a dually that he
loves to drive and still with the original paint, a custom four door shortbed,
numerous single cabs both custom and retro, and this amazing find – a
rare extended cab.
Blind Side – named after Jason’s loss of sight in one eye and a play on
words for his competition – sits on a custom built frame done in the Hill’s
shop, painted in the same lime green as the outside. The dash is from a 64
Chevelle (another of his favorite cars- and that he’s built several of) with
1969 Camaro gauges. The truck has flaming PPG paint and a custom
Lipstick Red interior. The front wheel wells have been section to help with
the stance – and the truck definitely lays the frame on the ground.
Jason started building trucks in high school, but started his business
several years later in 1995 in a 1,500 sq.ft. shop. After building a 6,000 sq.ft
shop and realizing it to was still too small – he now occupies a 24,000
square foot state of the art shop with 8 employees , which also houses his
friend and custom interior builder Jimmy Davis of JD Glassworks.
Hill’s Hot Rods built trucks and cars have been on the cover of or featured
in over 80 magazine articles. He built trucks that have placed 2nd at the
F100 Nationals 2 times, many many Best of Show awards, SEMA feature
vehicles for the past 10 years, and most recently built Fast Lane – the truck
that was awarded Good Guys 2011 Truck of the Year.

“Black Dragon” 1944 V Model Mack Firetruck
Roger Brown:
Builder: Tom Stark, Precision Designs
Lawrence, Kansas

Builder: Tom Stark grew up going to car shows, drag racing in the Denver
area and working on his dad's and friends' autos in his free time. He
became an aerospace machinist out of high school and after about 5 years
decided to work on Hot Rods everyday for a living. Tom worked for
Zoomers Automotive for seven years. Leaving there he went to work at
Pinkees were he honed in his skills for another two and a half years.
Deciding to try it out on his own, Precision Designs opened in 2009.
Currently in a 2500 sq ft shop located in Henderson, Colorado, Precision
Designs focuses on specialty vehicles that operate to a very high level.
Tom's first solo project was a 1968 Camaro. With it showing very well just
in bare metal, Precision Designs moved on to other projects, including the
1944 Mack Firetruck for Roger Brown.
Tom and Roger met while working races as part of NHRA's Safety Safari.
Roger and his wife Rhonda live in Lawrence, Kansas where Roger is a
Pierce Firetruck Salesman for Conrad Fire
Equipment( Roger's initial interest in the
firetruck was for use in parades to help promote his business.
How does one end up doing a Hot Rod Firetruck as a project you ask? The
phone call went like this. “Hi Tom, What do you think about building a Hot
Rod Firetruck? I asked...uhh how big is it? Will it fit in the shop? “ After
sending over pictures, discussing what Roger wanted out of it ,coming up
with a rendering, 14 months of hard work and sometimes frustrating
engineering for such a big, heavy vehicle, the completion looks like this.
The Firetruck started as a basic lower with big wheels and cool drive train.
Then the task came, how to execute? Tom designed the front and rear
suspension to accommodate the weight of the vehicle using 2” diameter 4
bars and air bags (ACCUAIR) on all 4 corners. The front 4 bar mounts and
air bag mounts are engineered into the same component mounting to the
stock axle. Steering, spindles, and front floaters are GM 1 ton. Brakes are
from SRT 10 ram truck. The rear suspension is a triangulated 4 bar 2” in
diameter sprung with tapered sleeve air bags. The axle is 2008 Dodge
SRW, narrowed 14” with SRT 10 ram rear brakes. Engine and trans are
from 2005 SRT 10 ram crew cab.
The body has been stretched 5.5” to make it a little easier to get in and out
of. We took the 5.5 from the front of the bed. The rear fenders have been
“tubbed” to fit the huge duals under the rear. The entire front sheet metal
has been realigned and fit to the truck straight and square. The windshield
has been chopped 4” to keep in proportion with the vehicle. A lot of the
panels were replaced and running boards were made from scratch. The
Ergonomics of the truck are modified to sit the driver down in the vehicle
versus sitting on top like a buss. Steering column, pedal location and seat
location have all been fit the driver. All this was done while trying to keep
the commercial feel inside and out. With everything complete in bare metal
the 1944 Mack was sent off to Nice Rides Restorations for the “Dripping
black” single stage. The chrome work was all executed by Jon Writes
Custom Chrome while interior was done by Pjs upholstery. The final touch
of Gold Leaf and lettering were completed by Speedway Graphics.

Along with working within Pierce Fire Truck as a successful sales person
for over 24 years Roger maintains his time with his wife and family, married
to Rhonda for 24 years, Two sons - Arron 29, Adam 27 "We wanted to do a
family project, I always wanted a Hot Rod after the ones I had growing up
but now the fire truck seemed to be a better fit since I have been in the
business of selling them for so long. I grew up in SW Iowa, Graduated from
Clarinda, IA. HS and then attended some college and tech classes and
soon moved to Missouri. I moved for business reasons to Kansas 30 years
ago and have been located in Lawrence, KS. ever since."

In Person - Kenny Youngblood

Pioneering The Art Of Speed
No one person has influenced the artistic appeal of motor sports more than
Kenny Youngblood.

Youngblood’s visually flamboyant career in hot rod art began to blossom in
the late 1960’s, when he started out doing hand lettering and airbrushing
on many of the top funny cars and dragsters in the country. His work
defined the genre and captivated fans around the world; setting
benchmarks for style and innovative effects.

In the mid seventies, he moved onto the drawing board, designing graphics
and illustrations for literally hundreds of clients in an exploding
performance industry; establishing himself as the first full-time artist
specializing in the field.

In the late seventies, he moved ahead yet again. This time, from the
drawing board to the easel; creating fine art paintings that depicted a
myriad of hot rod and racing subjects. Realizing there was potentially a
huge audience, Youngblood published and sold the images to the mass
market; unknowingly becoming the lone pioneer of today’s billion-dollar
motor sport collectibles business, and almost a decade before the rest of
the racing world eventually caught on!

Kenny’s God given talent combined with his love for drag racing and hot
rods, has left an indelible mark on the way performance vehicles look
today, and a mark who’s timeless beauty will reflect itself with every new
