Electric Rod

Jonathan Mill was looking for a showpiece for the E-Stopp electronic parking brake system he developed with his father-in-law, Larry Goodman. The debut would take place during the SEMA 2013 show in Las Vegas. Jonathan approached Steve with the idea of turning his 1928 Buick into an electric-powered rod. Challenge accepted! When the car arrived, it was in very rough shape. It was completely rusted out and the wood frame was destroyed by termites. To start, all of the wood framing on the floor was replaced with metal and the integrity of the vehicle was strengthened with additional metal bracing. To take the theme to the next level, the seats were made to look like electric chairs complete with head pieces, gauges, and electrical wires. The roof of the vehicle was left in its original state because it fit right in with the creepy feel. The exterior was painted green and the contours and lines of the body were highlighted to create an aged look. The entire car was embellished with electrical gauges, switches, knobs, and even glowing hands in hand cuffs.
