Photo Gallery: Readers Share Their Freaky (in a Good Way) Car Builds

If you want good answers, you must first ask good questions.

Our friends running Summit Racing’s social media channels are skilled at asking good questions that encourage audience participation. And whenever possible, we like to share the results of those good questions.

On a recent #FreeForAllFriday themed post on Summit Racing’s Facebook page, people were asked to share their wildest builds. And per usual, our fellow hot rodders did not disappoint.

Here’s the proof.

“Hoss Ellington-Donnie Allison-Hawaiian Tropic Nascar tribute, carb’d 415 ci LS3 Stroker, T-56, 9″, Bonneville (land speed) compliant and street legal.” — Big Red Too

“A Sawzall Escort convertible. I shot holes through the floors with my 12 gauge to keep the rainwater from collecting.” — John S.

“1978 Cadillac hearse with a 5.9 Cummins turbo diesel.” — Kevin V.

“‘66 Zastava 750, chopped, frenched, dropped, factory suicide doors.” — Gabor O.

“’68 VW with SBC and a shortened S10 frame, with a 4-link rear all for corners on air.” — Mike L.

“1938 1-ton Pro Street. 455 big block with a 671 blower. The list goes on and on.” — James S.
