A parking lot is a parking lot is a parking lot—unless it’s the Summit Racing parking lot. On any given day or time, the lot outside a Summit Racing store can turn into an impromptu mini car show, depending on who’s stopped by the store. On Wednesdays, we’ll share our parking lot find of the week—another benefit of being Powered by Summit Racing Equipment.
Nicknamed Frankenscayne, this 1959 Chevrolet Biscayne four-door sedan is a whole different creature thanks to matte blue paint, painted rims, whitewalls, and shaved door handles. And that’s a good thing. Biscaynes were produced primarily for the fleet market but were offered to the general public as a low-dollar, bare bones vehicle.
In short, Frankenscayne is a different take on one of the most basic, run-of-the-mill vehicles from the late 1950s.
That’s what hot rodding is all about, isn’t it?
