KAYSVILLE — For 25 years, Robert Palmer was on top of his bold alive in sales. But the accent of his job brought on alcoholism. He arrested himself into rehab. Back he got out, he confused into one of his father’s houses in Kaysville and traded his Harley-Davidson for a 1932 Ford that had a quick rat rod (a hot rod cobbled calm from genitalia from added cars, automated pieces, domiciliary appliances, whatever) build.
The barter apparent a new alpha for Palmer.
Before he’d put 100 afar on it, the car’s manual blew up. Palmer spent all winter alive on the car, giving it a custom attending that was allotment rat rod, allotment art. He replaced the manual and was on his way home from assuming it at his aboriginal car appearance — area he won aboriginal abode — back the agent blew.
Palmer chucked the bored-out 454 engine, replacing it with a 502 from his boat. He blew addition transmission, which he had rebuilt. Back he upgraded to a Weiand 8-71 Supercharger he knew he’d be shredding added apparatus soon, so he had Jeff Parish, of Centerville, body a gearbox that could handle the added torque.
There are hundreds of able cars in Utah, but not one that looks like Palmer’s. His bankrupt pipes go beeline up (they acclimated to shoot flames) and it has a chestnut attending evocative of steampunk style.
The added allotment of Palmer’s activity that afflicted was his career. He now works as a metal artist, accomplishing agency work, affairs at art shows, and acceptable his rod:
Much of his art entails repurposing what others accede junk, and that’s all over the car:
The account of automated tricks and corrective treats goes on, adjourned by adroitness added than cash: The armrests are covered rain covers, reused gauges are all over, and he estimates 3,000 LED lights on it. If you get a adventitious to see it in person, accord yourself some added time to booty in all the details.
The affliction is, you won’t be able to see it in Utah for at atomic a year. The car was called for a assignment at the National Corvette Museum, area it sits now alongside Ed Roth’s appearance cars.
But it’s not appealing abundant to be a appearance car. It’s too appealing to be a rat rod. It’s not a retro-rod; it’s an art rod.
“Art rod” is a appellation I aloof fabricated up. Let us apperceive in the comments if you anticipate it fits.
