Another '55 Chris built with his straight axle clip

We went down to Medford, Oregon to interview fabricator Chris Darland for Rats & Gassers: Kustom Kulture Takes A Ride and Munster Style Issue One, leaving Seattle early Thursday morning. I met Chris during production of Hot Rod Girls Save The World back in 2004. He choreographed the zombie fight scene as well as playing Freddy Dahmer in my film. First we went to Chris small shop by his house and later to his business partners full blown shop/classic car museum (man the cars in there were unreal- even tho they were Chevys...). Chris is a true fabricator's fabricator, with more cars to his credit than most. His latest endeavor is creating kustom straight axle clips for '55-'57 Chevy's, giving those cars an instant mid sixties gasser stance with a minimum of work. Great two day road tip. On the way back we helped with a rollover accident. I will blog about that later.
