Theres something in the way she movesactually, theres something in the way she sits still, too. Theres just something primal about a Westergard-style kustom that blows a hole in yer guts. Thats what happened when we first encountered Bobs coupe. His own first encounter with this 36 happened on his way to Oregon to attend the Portland Roadster Show. He had wanted a 36 for a while and, on a tip, took a side trip to check out a 35 that was for sale. The thing was barely a car, with the bottom 6 inches of the body lost to the elements. But, like your typical car guy, he didnt see a rusted-out heap sitting neglected in someones yard, he saw a finished kustom, and by the time hed completed building it in his mind, all the 35 stuff was replaced with 36 metal. As it turns out, Bob also happened to be friendly with top-notch builder Donn Lowe, whose vision of the 36 was as clear as Bobs. Luckily, Donn knows when to stop and kept Bob from going overboard with modifications. Three years later, the results were stunning enough to win the King of Kustoms award at the 2001 Portland Roadster Show on its first time out.
