Saw an interesting custom car at a car show
#1
I was at the Mukilteo Car Show at the Historical Flight Foundation on June 22nd and saw an interesting custom car. It was owned by Alice Cooper originally and was sold at Barrett-Jackson. The car design is inspired by the song Welcome To My Nightmare.

It is registered as a 1936 Auburn Boattail but it was made in 2007, not sure how they allow that.

The person who now owns it bought it from the guy who bought it at Barrett.

The paint job and airbrush work is well done and the paint work alone is said to cost $36,000. My car was parked butt to butt with it all day so I had the opportunity to look at it in detail.

Cool car and the guy who now own it was very nice.

If the Tru-Fire was done by Mike Levallee, it's well-worth the $36K. thumb

If someone else did it, they did a smashing job duplicating his style. thumb

very FEW Auburns left..... not to mention one that has a paint job like that. just curious what a 36,000 paint job looks like. My neighbor had a 17,000 paint job done. His ideas and CONTACTS were superior to mine. LOL when it came back he was pissed with the work done for the price. I just smiled.

This was at Daytona and along with my car was one of only 16 classic cars at the "Super Stang Fest"

The neat thing which unfortunately I could not capture was a FADE. The fade was of a stallion horse in the paint...which was absolutely awesome and as you can see the camera didnt pick it up.

I can see something in the paint but can't quite make it out. I do like the rims.
