It was Chick's idea to have a traditional Mexican blanket
incorporated into the upholstery of this Glide Engineering bench seat (Ron
Mangus did the work). Keeping with the red, white and blue colors of the
pinstriping, the effect is striking.
One of the neatest details of this car is the shifter knob
sculpted by Dennis McPhail. Cool enough all by itself, Chick had Hot Dog
(Pete Finlan) pinstripe and flame it.
Hot Dog's mastery of the pinstriper's art is fully displayed
on this car. On the headlights, he not only pinstripes, he adds a lower
half to go with the chrome skeletons that peer over the top.
Here's a good view from above during the final assembly. The
day after this car was finished, Chick drove it to the L.A. Roadster show.
