Top 10 worst car replicas
This is a collection of the worst I have seen so far. I have order them not
just for the lack of craftsmanship and similarity, but also on
aspirationality and "common sense". Ohh, and I personally hate Honda
Civics, lol. I hope iof you don´t laugh at the cars, you would in the
cover that I used in the background.
The one and only Bugatti Aerolithe
David Grainger, co-founder of Bradford, Ontario's Guild of Automotive
Restorers, wasn't sure what to do with Bugatti chassis #57104 when he first
got his hands on it—until he heard about the legendary Aerolithe.
The Jean Bugatti-designed "Electron Coupe" -- so named because it was
bodied in a magnesium alloy called "Electron" -- mysteriously disappeared
shortly after its 1935 debut at the Paris Salon.
That mystique made it the perfect candidate for an exacting five-year-long
recreation performed using only period-correct materials and methods.

Customized Cars from the Past

A development of hot rodding, the change in name corresponded to the change
in the design of the cars being modified. The first hot rods were pre-World
War II cars, with running boards and simple fenders over the wheels. Early
model cars (1929 to 1934) were modified by removing the running boards and
either removing the fenders entirely or replacing them with very light
"cycle fenders". Later models usually had "fender skirts" installed on the
rear fenders. Many cars were "hopped up" with engine modifications such as
adding additional carburetors, high compression heads and dual Exhausts. "Engine swaps" were done, the object
of which was to put the most powerful engine in the lightest possible frame
and body combination. The suspension was usually altered. Initially this
involved lowering the rear end as much as possible with the use of
"lowering blocks" on the rear springs. Later cars were given a "rake job"
either adding a "dropped" front axle or heating front coil springs to make
the front end of the car much lower than the rear. Much later some hot rods
and custom cars swapped the old solid rear axle for an independent rear
axle, often from Jaguar. Only rarely was the grille of one make of car
replaced by another; one exception was the 1937 Buick grille, often used on
a Ford. (In the 1950s and 1960s, the grille swap of choice was the 1953 De
Soto.) The original hot rods were plainly painted like the Model A Fords
from which they had been built up, and only slowly begun to take on colors,
and eventually fancy orange-yellow flamed hoods or "candy-like" deep
acrylic finishes in the various colors.
With the change in automobile design to encase the wheels in fenders and to
extend the hood to the full width of the car, the former practices were no
longer possible. In addition, there was tremendous automotive advertising
and subsequent public interest in the new models in the 1950s. Hence custom
cars came into existence, swapping headlamp rings, grilles, bumpers, chrome
side strips, and tail lights, as well as "frenching" and "tunnelling" head-
and taillights. The bodies of the cars were changed by cutting through the
sheet metal, removing bits to make the car lower, welding it back together,
and adding a lot of lead to make the resulting form smooth (hence the term
"lead sled"; lead has been replaced by Bondo). By this means, "chopping"
made the roof lower; "sectioning" made the body thinner from top to bottom.
"Channeling" was cutting notches in the floorpan where the body touches the
frame to lower the whole body. Fins were often added from other cars, or
made up from sheet steel. In the custom car culture, someone who merely
changed the appearance without also substantially improving the performance
was looked down upon.

The last Horch
In western Texas of all places, Audi finds the last Horch, and ships it
back to Germany for a 2-year restoration. Audi is the Latin translation of
Horch, and Audi was founded in 1910 by a Horch business partner who was
forced out. In 1932, Audi and Horch merged, along with DKW and Wanderer,
and the current day Audi logo (four rings) came about. Horch brand was
tainted by the fact that many of the Nazi and SS leaders drove Horch during
the war. The last remaining civilian models, built pre-1940, are rare
collector's gems. The last Horch was built in 1953 by hand, based on a
chassis manufactured in 1939.

Barn Find: Classic Porsche 912 Restoration -- /DRIVE CLEAN
Go to www.ammonyc.com to get the free Barn Find Assessment Checklist
Today's story is about a true barn find. The car in question is a 1966
Porsche 912, which was last registered 23 years ago. We discovered the car
thanks to our friend Roger Garbow, from Full Throttle Marketing. He had
received a call about the car's discovery and immediately forwarded the
info to us, here at Drive Clean. Address in hand, we turned our crews
around and headed-off to a northern region of Connecticut where we
unearthed and restored this classic car. Watch as we assess our find,
remove years of accumulated filth and grime, and initiate the paint
correction phase on this 912's "Irish Green" shell.
