Lino Martins is known as “THE car guy” for two very good reasons:
1. He’s the founder of LUGNuts on Flickr
2. He builds models like this:
This chopped and lowered custom ’61 Dodge Polara is called Aztec Gold and features a fiery hot lowrider paint job, ruby jeweled grille, classic white interior and shimmering pearl gold accents throughout. The strange engine under the hood is a Long Ram and the spare tire cover on the trunk lid blazes in yellow and gold like the Aztec sun.
This was built for the Plus Or Minus Ten challenge over at LUGNuts where we had to build any vehicle from the year we were born…plus or minus ten years. In this case I went minus ten with this flashy ’61.
Now even Lino will tell you that I’m not into cars, but when something this snazzy and this plaid comes along, I just have to stop and take note of it. The coolness meter just blew up after seeing this one! 🙂
