Some ideas just sound right. An example of such an idea is taking a straight eight Packard engine, adding a McCulloch supercharger and four Stromberg carburetors and dropping the whole monster in a stripped down ’30s roadster body.

Don’t make the mistake of thinking this car is another rat rod. I have personally seen this car, and there is nothing “ratty” about it. Each detail is well thought out and well executed. The craftmanship is amazing, inside and out. It is so good, in fact, that it was featured on the cover of the February 2010 Hot Rod Magazine. What they couldn’t bring you was that sound.
Oh, that sound.
