New Project '55 Chevy

A few weeks ago we had a car dropped off by our friend Rick Inserra.  We have always had a soft spot for old racecars but especially for old gassers.  Rick’s car is just that, a 1955 Chevy 210 hardtop that is not only an old racecar from New York but it will be built in the gasser style before it leaves our shop. 

Our friend Ric Cambell of Big Wig Racecars did all the custom aluminum work a couple of years ago and even added to the existing cage by putting in the front half.  You can see the work he did on the car here at: www.bigwigracecars.com 

 

Pipeworx will be putting in an engine-turned firewall cover and installing the brakes, transmission and hydraulic clutch cylinder.  We will also be building the custom exhaust with Rick's vintage Thrush mufflers and installing some vintage speed parts.  Rick requested that we also work our magic on some of the sheetmetal that needs attention and we will get the car ready for Rick to enjoy.  This car has some of the widest rear tires we have ever seen..... can you say traction?

Star of Texas Tattoo Show

A couple weeks ago, Pipeworx was out at the Star Of Texas Tattoo Art Revival at the Palmer Auditorium in Austin, Texas.  If you’ve never made it to the show before you should, there are world class tattooists, artwork, and plenty of hot rods, motorcycles and customs.  

 

We were invited to display our newly finished shop truck and to brush shoulders with some of the best tattooers from around the globe.  This is our third year being invited to the show.  Last year we had Chris Parker's Model A Sedan in tow, and it is always good to see some of the friends we have made over the years; like Keith Weesner... the guy loves nachos! 

 

 We hung out in our booth and fielded questions about the truck.  We also had some custom airbrush work on display by our friend Mathias, www.mathiasairbrushing.com.

 

No one at the shop got any ink done this year, but we did manage to gain a few pounds by hanging out and stuffing our faces with Sandy's Burgers, a short walk away, and some killer nachos that were served up at the concession stand. 

 

We do not know what we will be bringing to the show next year, it probably has not even been built yet, but I am sure we will have something cool so come by and introduce yourself.
