The Secret Lab Of Holton Hot Rods is the topic today because it is a cooler windy day and kind of blah…I thought you needed some eye candy to brighten your view…or maybe I need it for my view?
One thing about owning a restoration shop…there are always lots of cool cars around…I never know from day-to-day what I will see or hear.
Our trailer moves down the road regularly to car shows all over the Northwest. This Chevelle is a beauty and I love how the picture turned out with the trailer. Being the ad person for our business I look for pictures to be taken in a way that I can use for my ads…this one is perfect…shows the nose of a very cool car with all our advertising on the trailer complete with web page info.
Holton Secret Lab delivers some of the most outrageous; yet incredibly classic Hot Rods and Street Rods…American Muscle and Customs…Classics and Vintage Cars in the Pacific Northwest.
Frame off rotisserie restorations…ground up restorations…all in house…custom paint and design…fabrication…we build what you want.
Notice how meticulously clean our shop is?
HSL strives for perfection with attention to detail…an orderly shop helps you know where things are at and helps keep the jobs focused…both Wild Bill and I are clean freaks:)
V-12 Jag in a 1928 Dodge Coupe…I will be blogging more about “Jagged” as we continue to build and finish this car…since it is ours Wild Bill is going all out with his creativity…it already looks wild and bad to the bone!
These are all customer cars that HSL built and restored…this was a magazine photo shoot.
Best of Class…Portland Roadster Show
For those who are not familiar with the Portland Roadster Show it is a large regional car show in Portland, Oregon. Usually runs well over 400 cars and draws over 20,000 people per day of the three-day show. It is an honor to be accepted to show your car in the show and when you win it is over the top as far as winning goes…I will do a post of the first Roadster Show Wild Bill and I attended with three cars that HSL built….all three won best of class out of 400 cars…we were thrilled!!!!
Wild Bill has painted flames for over 40 years…this picture shows depth in the intricate flames…almost 3D looking…WB you are an artist!
Amazingly cool car…all the comforts for today and it goes down the road with good old horsepower…where is the “Oh Sh*t Handle?”
“Mr. Blu2″ Portland Roadster Show Best of Class Winner Many Times Over.”
Love this car…the design of the body, fenders and grille…the belt line…the smooth classic lines.
It is interesting that the light effects how the color looks…inside car show lights verses outside car shows in direct sun.
Outrageous Super Bee Clone.
At the Portland Roadster Show…has won many times.
This shade of red is a crowd pleaser…lots of depth and shine…very classic and fits the car…when you see it pull in at the car show everyone takes notice due to the throaty sound and the stand out red.
A very rare Kaiser Manhattan…full frame off resto…look at all the amazing chrome…it sparkles!
Incredible lines and unusual design make this Kaiser a crowd pleaser…Portland Roadster Show winner and has won all over the nation as the owner takes it to national shows.
I will be adding this car to our website soon…www.holtonsecretlab.com
