1929 Ford

1929 Ford

John Cooper's El Tiki is a "time capsule" car that takes you back to the days of tiny hot rod and custom magazines printed on pulp that cost a quarter each. A Polynesian-style show sign describes the copper-colored roadster as a 1956 Olds Rocket 324-powered all-steel 1929 Ford built by Tom Culbertson.

El Tiki isn't just a Model A roadster, and few such cars shout "1960s old school!" like this one. The beautifully rendered rod looks like one you might have seen on a 1961 issue of Custom Rodder magazine surrounded by cover blurbs like "The Plush Touch for Custom Interiors" and "Restyle & Repair with Fiberglass."
