Default A Big Thanks To Ben Meissner At Street Rod Designs



Wanted to give special thanks to Ben at Street Rod Designs for this incredible rendering. This car has been decades in the making, going all the way back to high school in the early 70's. A friend of the family had ordered a 71 El Camino SS brand new with an optional custom color from Chevy. This was back in the day when you could do this. The color was a Cadillac special order called Nutmeg Firemist metallic. He went out of town for a couple weeks and left the car with me to drive. Cowl hood with black stripes, Cragar mags, black tonneau cover, I was in heaven. I've never forgotten that car and the rare color combo, and always wanted to do one for myself. I've attached a pic below of the color on a Yenko Nova.





The plan is to use a custom chassis from one of our vendors and as many parts as our supporting vendors can supply, and make this an official Lateral-G build. Just need the money tree to start growing so I can get started...

Working with Ben on this project was awesome, completely painless. I highly recommend him for any artwork needs you may have.

No, this would have been around 1973/4 or so.
