Builders Showrooms "Pick of the Week" - Fastlane Rod Shop Roadster
This week's Builders Showroom "Pick of the Week" is brought to you by FastLane Rod Shop. The gorgeous '32 Roadster rolled out of Dave Lane's Iowa shop a little over a year ago and is a sight to behold. FastLane Rod Shop builds complete cars one at a time, yep you read that correctly one at a time. This unique approach to car building has worked out extremely well for Lane and his customers. His customers know that Dave is devoting his full attention to their build. They know that their ride won't be put in the back burner for any reason and when you are waiting for your dream car to be built the luxury of Dave Lane's 100% attention is priceless. Dave benefits from the one car at a time approach because from just about the get go his rides have been earning Dave heaps and I mean heaps of recognition. More top 10's, top 5's and Pro's Picks than you can shake a stick at. How about; Street Rod of the Year, 2012 Grand National Roadster Show builder of the Year, Hot Rod of the Year and the list just goes on and on. So in my humble opinion, I would have to say that Dave Lane's approach to Hot Rod building is working out just fine for everyone!
Now for a few deets on Dave's latest build the '32 Roadster. The Roadsters power plant was built by Ed Pink racing engines. According to Dave, "it's a well thought out 383 package - starts and runs like a basic small block. But this car is crazy fast." I for one will take Dave's word on that but would love to see this baby in action! It has a Hilborn Injection system and custom Billet valve covers made to look like Pink's stamped them back in the 60's. Dave's son even made custom Pink's stickers for them. Mixed steel and leather covered inserts were implemented for a basic and functional yet stunning interior. The Roadster has meticulous chrome plating throughout. The frame was hard blocked "so there's not the tiniest ripple on any tube and even the area where the body sits on it is perfect." The detail in the ride is endless. And it is exactly that kind of attention to detail that a car built by Dave Lane at FastLane Rod Shop will get you.
Don't take my word for it, let your peepers roam over this gem from FastLane Rod Shop.
