Good Guys Des Moines 2009, Customs

Customs:

For me, one of the highlights of any show are the customs. Here are some of our favorites from the Des Moines Good Guys Show in 2009. It was the 4th of July weekend, the weather was great but for a little rain.

This is the other chopped top Mustang fastback. This car is super nice and has some excellent work and design on it. The owner stated he has additional plans for the car this winter. Should be a real show stopper next season!

Good Guys Des Moines, Customs Corvette

This Corvette belongs to a friend of mine, Dick Mathern at the Corvette Hospital, who lives in Des Moines. I hadn’t seen him in nearly 30 years. We used to be in the Central Iowa Corvette Club together. This is the car he built for his brother who has sinced passed on. It was great to see you again Dick!

Good Guys Des Moines, Customs 57 Ford

In 1957 Ford sold more cars than Chevy. This maybe one of the reasons, they are beautiful, clean designs.
