This is a basically fresh car. It was professionally Built in 1999 by “Basic Hot Rods” of Tulsa, OK. To date, the car has about 2,000 trouble free miles on it. It was awarded the “Real Hot Rod of the Year” at the Daryl Starbird Show in Tulsa, the largest indoor car show in the nation. The car has received awards at every event it has been entered in. The best part is that it is a great driver. This is a car that started out being a “nice driver” and ended up being an excellent “show car” for the street. The car is very solid and easy to drive on the street, where it belongs. It is also very fast and handles very well – never gets hot! Street Rodder Magazine described it as being “what John Milner would be driving if American Graffiti was made today!”
