Oct 24, 2014 No Comments

M2’s Chip Foose Design collection had us at “hello” in its first release. The six cars were all related either to the master designer/builder’s career, or episodes of his Overhaulin’ TV show.

In 1938, Packard only made a handful of the gargantuan Model 1608 drop-tops, powered by a 473 CID / 175 horsepower V12 engine so refined that a nickel could be balanced on the motor’s intake while it was running. “Convertible [...]
