On the other side of the spectrum was Don
Smith’s Street Rod of the Year-winning Fordor – a car he
purchased years ago from Tex Smith. A rarity these days, the
family-friendly sedan is a testament to Don’s passion for
deuces as well as builder Jeff Kinsey’s coach building
The long, sleek DuPont-orange sedan has been
wedge-chopped two inches in front and one and a half inches
in back as well as channeled one inch. A custom Hot Rods by
JSK chassis features ¼ elliptical springs by Posie’s and a
Winter’s quickchange with 4:11 gears. The Dayton wire wheels
are wrapped in Coker 4.0 and 650 series bias ply tires. The
open hood sides reveal a perfectly-painted and smoothed
336-inch Ford Y-block V8 with a Hilborn injection system
converted to EFI by Auto Trend. The interior is a
blend of custom one-off parts & pieces by JSK and leather
bench seats and trim by Paul Atkins.

1959 Corvette Evolution
Considering the technological changes that
have taken place over nearly four decades, transforming any
car—such as this ’59 Corvette—from a well-aged, mildly
modified driver into an innovative and great-looking super
rod requires serious commitment and careful planning.

Excerpt from article:
"Before I ran out and bought separate fuses, relays, switches and wire, I decided
to search around to see if any products existed that would make the job easier.
I found a fuse/relay block at Autotrend that looked like it would make the job
The Autotrend fuse/relay block comes
2 relay controlled 30 amp outputs (perfect for lights & heated
2 fused 12v outputs (future GPS, stereo, etc.)
A hot lead that connects directly to the battery.
Ignition hot lead for triggering relays
Two leads that connect to accessory switches.
The fuse/relay block looked simple to connect up. I didn’t have to figure out
the difference between relay pin 87 and 87A or if I was going to trigger my
headlight switch with 12 volts or a ground. The wires for the HID light control
switch were already connected to the block and the switch end just had to be
screwed in place. Sounded like a great solution for me."
