Sorry... Not sure of this was the intent of the thread.

This car:

The detail is that they're actually 20" custom wheels. The white wall is part of the wheel, and it is hand matched to the little bead on the sidewall of the tire. Mike Curtis did them for Chris Ryan, the builder of the car (and the only reason my Passat didn't get towed Thursday morning from a parking lot beside the hotel). Definitely one of my favorite features at the show.

If you want, I have a bunch of pictures on the welder series Facebook page.

Troy Trepanier built Torino. Custom dies used in various places around the car taper on one end to flush with the panel.

Something caught my eye as I walked past this model a... The builder has cut out the louvered part of the hood side panel and switched them driver side for passenger side, so the air is being forced into the engine compartment. Same parts, different function. He's also lengthened the hood ahead of the louvers.

Will.i.am was talking about wheels of that flava on an episode of Top Gear I was watching last night.

I thought that was cool as heck!
