Simple Elegance.

Mooneyes Gauges. Glide Engineering bench

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.

Skull shifter knob sculpted by Dennis McPhail Pinstriping by Pete Finlan.

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.

Skeleton headlights. Louvering.

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.

Mooneyham Blower. 1932 Ford Roadster

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.
