The Sherm’s Custom Plating Road Tour has been the wrapup event of the ARP/STREET RODDER Road Tour for many years. Sherm’s owner Gary Matranga is a lifelong hot rodder. He and his partners Art Holman and Dave Dougherty have been providing top-quality plating for the best car builders in the nation for many years. The Sacramento location is the perfect place to kick off our fall Road Tour. The logistics of this year’s Sherm’s Tour presented a bit of a problem at first. We realized that the Cruisin’ the Coast Road Tour would be wrapping up in Mississippi in October—and we had decided that we wanted to go to the famous Run to the Sun event in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. After giving it some thought, we came up with a…

so, what do you think your hot rod is worth?

I have seen enough auctions, read enough classified ads, and driven by enough For Sale signs to have a pretty good idea of the difference between the “asking price” and the “sale price.” Still, knowledge is power, and the more you know about what’s what, the better equipped you will be to buy or sell. For starters, to determine what your car is worth, or the other guy's, you need to have an idea of what you are looking at. Sounds obvious but that’s not always the case. Each of us knows what (parts and labor) we have in our own car and that enables us to have an idea of what it is worth. But are you being “real”? Yes, you can add up the cost of all of your…

historically speaking

According to ancient Greek mythology, each and every day, god Helios would drive his chariot along the skyline from one side of the earth clear to the other, with the blazing sun riding shotgun—and this is how the sun would rise and set. Phaethon, the once-illegitimate son of Helios, secretly took the Chariot of the Sun one day on a pseudo joy ride (he was granted permission by his father despite his objections). His youth and inexperience proved fatal, as he lost control of the horses and was subsequently killed—and in the process of the melee, created the Milky Way above and turned the African continent below into a desert. Now, what on earth does that have to do with a convertible four-door ’32 Ford, you ask? Well, it turns out…

Currently, the ’48 Cadillac convertible known as “Eldorod” belongs to Chris and Paul Andrews of Fort Worth, Texas, but its storied provenance harkens back to Hot Rods by Boyd and comes full circle for Chip Foose. It was the first car Foose drew for Boyd and the last car out of Hot Rods by Boyd’s shop before the 1997 bankruptcy. Interestingly, more than a client’s project, the ’48 Caddy convertible was Boyd Coddington’s personal car and where it all started for Foose. We asked Foose about the timeline for Eldorod: “Eight years at Boyd’s and then two years at Foose Design. At Boyd’s it was finished for Ron Craft and then sold to Wayne Davis and then sold or traded to Paul and Chris Andrews.” The main address for Hot Rods by…
