Book Excerpt: Automotive Custom Interiors
Idea books are not exactly new. Kitchen and bath idea books have been around for years. In fact, the home and garden world is full of idea books.
But the automotive world is a different story. A custom automotive interior idea book is a new concept, and I sincerely hope this book will inspire you-maybe even make you laugh, or prompt you to call a friend to come over and take a look.
The whole idea is to get you thinking-and not just about things you can do to your hot rod, but also about things you can do to your kid's first car or to your daily driver or to the car you've always wanted to build for a long-haul road trip.
You know, one of the most beautiful things about the world of custom cars is its sheer diversity.
People customize everything: vintage Plymouths, late-model Mercedes-Benzs, Hondas, Oldsmobiles, Studebakers, Mazdas, Minis, all manner of Fords and Chevrolets-from every decade, typically starting with the 1920s and reaching right up to the present.
You'll find custom pickup trucks, SUVs, sedans, coupes, roadsters, even a few phantom body styles that never actually left an automaker's assembly line.
Of course, some custom cars and trucks are incredibly high-buck buildups. Some are garage-built. And most run the gamut in between.
