’65 Corvette NCRS Arkus-Duntov Winner!

This is the nicest Corvette I am pretty sure I have ever seen. This ’65 owned and meticulously restored, body off, ground up, is owned by Don Mullenhoff of Livermore. A member of NCRS (National Corvette Restorers Society) Don was just awarded the very exclusive and difficult to get  NCRS Duntov Mark of Excellence Award. From the NCRS webstite:

“This award was created by the National Corvette Restorers Society in 1985, in honor of Mr. Zora Arkus-Duntov, long-time Chief Engineer for the Chevrolet Corvette, who retired from General Motors in 1975. The Duntov Award recognizes individuals for the restoration and preservation of 1953 -1974 Corvettes. To achieve this coveted award, an owner must attain a judging score of at least 97% out of 100 % based on an original “as manufactured” standard at a National or Regional NCRS event; as well as present the car for a rigorous performance test of all vehicle mechanical components and functions, all of which must operate as those of a new car, without a single failure. Finally, the car must again score at least 97%, at a National NCRS Convention, to receive the Duntov Award. The process of achieving the Duntov Award requires attendance at a minimum of three events, and must be completed within a three year period. Only Corvettes have achieved the NCRS Duntov Mark of Excellence Award.”

Congratulations Don! It’s a beautiful car, I am in awe and inspired by your skill and craftsmanship, well don sir!

Killer Kustom Ranchero!

July 13, 2012 by daveparker | Comments Off on Killer Kustom Ranchero!

Here is one you don’t see too often, a sweet ’72 Ford Ranchero! I loved the treatment on this baby too, bright paint, very little chrome, subtle hood scoop, well done! I wish I had a chance to talk to the owner, I would love to hear the story on this one. Hopefully I will spot it again and I can feature it here, until then my friends, feast your eyes!

Pov R T

I got a little abstract on this Model T Hot Rod! Seen at Picnic in the Park, Tracy in May of 2012. The License was POV R T get it? haha If you have built any sort of custom car I am sure you get it, for me I kept thinking POV (point of view) and I was all getting down in the grass going for some weird angles. Plus I loved those giant rear tires, big old N-50 15’s or something like the good old days man! Sigh…


It’s not a rat rod, it’s a Hot Rod, good ol Model T Rodder!


Simple dual-quad setup on top a tunnel ram, lots of chrome glistening in the sun, I’m feelin’ a little emotional!

’60 Ford Starliner

One of my favorite customs is a Starliner. There really are not too many of these around anymore, but for some reason in my area there are several that are done really well, this one being a killer example of a Killer Kustom!
