Profile

Traditional styled street machines that perform like "super cars" are the speciality of Dave Lane and his crew at FastLane Hot Rods. Built one at a time, most rides at FastLane start as a traditional body shell and a unique vision of what it could be; they see the possibilities there that tend to escape mere mortals. The end result: they roll out completed "one of a kind" jewels.

The 5,000 square foot shop that houses FastLane has all the bells and whistles needed to turn out these gems. Tig welders to an English wheel to horizontal and vertical band saws. FastLane has it all to complete the ride of your dreams. What you get is an unexpectedly mesmerizing take on a tradional look that not only runs like a banshee but it doesn't break the bank in doing it. A combination that you don't always see at other high end builders.

Each project is unique and well thought out and that kind of attention tends to get noticed; FastLane is no stranger to recognition. Their rides have won numerous National awards, and have received extensive print coverage. When FastLane does their mojo they are able to take what was just an ordinary ride and turn it into something truly extraordinary!

Last weekend at the Goodguys Nationals in Columbus Ohio they had a special exhibit for the past recipients of the Trendsetter of the Year award.  It was a great honor to be part of this group and especially thankful to Phil and Deb Becker, Alan Button and Bob Johnson for bringing their cars to be part of the display.

The Becker 32 is the nicest 32 built to this day!

Congrats to all, Dave I've loved all your builds especially Alan's 3w...

Hanging out at the Goodguys Rod & Custom Association Columbus show with Alan Button (3 window coupe) and Rich Stapf (32 Roadster). Even though I built these cars in 2004 and 2002 respectively, they have never been parked together.  Pretty cool seeing them go down the road together.

Impressive group right there!

I love all three of those cars. I was finally able to see Alan's '32 at the L.A. Roadster Show. I probably looked at that car for 20 minutes straight and took enough mental notes that it gave me a headache. I don't like copying anybody else's stuff, but if I built a '32 3-window, it would be reaaallly close to that one.

63 1/2 is my Favorite. :)

Hey Dave, make sure Rich behaves himself back there.

Love the 3 window, it sits so right. Have a fun week end.

Great pic and great cars!

But but they are all FORDS!!!!

Can I get the wheel specs for the Gal?

You may already know but just saw your name on a list of those individuals to whom attleboro owes money

Very Cool...

We're here. Lets talk about Hillary . .

Would be Kool Dave Lane to get a pic of all of your builds in one shot.All three are beautiful

Wish I was there!

Have a great weekend, Dave Lane!

That is cool wish i was there

That was alan buttons car? What a great guy. I molded my 32 after his! With his permission of course! Lol.

Tania Foster the roadster on the left is Bev Rich Stapf's

A couple of very nice Hot Rods timeless !!!!

Two of the BEST>

All set up at Goodguys Rod & Custom Association Des Moines show. Parked with some good friends, David and James Wolk. David just finished the 50 Merc. This car is amazing. Him and James knocked it out of the park.  Also seen here is James daughter Shelbies 49 GMC pick-up and Ellies 70 Maverick. Both really cool well built hot rods that really get driven!
