Tricked Out T
I'm in the mood for the unexpected and I'm not using unexpected lightly here. How about trying on Doug Weigel's "Tiki"/"The Polynesian Spectacle" for a walk on the wild side. This ride most definitely blurs the lines between art and automobile and is totally unexpected. I saw the "Polynesian Spectacle"/"Tiki" up close and in personal at the GoodGuys Southwest Nats. and lucky for yours truly, I was able to chat with creative genius/builder extraordinaire Doug Weigel for a few minutes. When I asked about the inspiration for his radical ride he humbly replied, "I get an idea and it just grows from there." He's a self described "local guy with a bad habit". I hope he never gets over this "bad habit"! As a car builder and working artist, he is a steel sculptor by trade and his mad skills are evident throughout this wild build. In addition to the all the hand made elements on this terrific T, the ""Polynesian Spectacle"/"Tiki" boasts a blown Chevy small-block, sure to get this rolling wonder where it wants to go post haste! Weigel's work is a genius blend of imagination and innovation, making this ride a truly unexpected "Spectacle".
Take a gander at this completely hand built, one of a kind 1910 Ford Model T. As the Polynesians would say that's one lolo ka'a! (That's "crazy car" for us Yanks)
By the by this baby won the Go For The Gold Award in 2010 at the Darryl Starbird's National Rod and Custom Car Show. Doug won $20,000 for his efforts. Not bad for "local guy with a bad habit"! Keep on letting those ideas grow Doug.
Til the next time - Keep on Kruzin!
