Lot 623- I know what your thinking? 1985 Dodge Truck?? But look a little deeper, this is a sweet ride!

 

Lot 624- Every time I see one of these cars it will be on my list! I love these!

 

Lot 701– Usually I’m not a big fan of chopped trucks, but this Mercury, yes I said Mercury is just way too cool not to mention!

 

Lot 730– You want a Z28? Forget the 69’s, get a real Z, get a 1970! This is a great example! One owner car!

 

 

Lot 775.3– A Superbird Convertible? Huh? Pretty cool even for a clone!

Lot 839– Factory 150 Business Coupe, Fuelie too, it will take an awfully impressive car to top this one on my list this year!

 

Lot 840.1– Check this thing out! Factory crew cab! Rare!Rare! Rare!

JDSMotorsports.com Top Ten Picks: Turkey Rod Run 2012

At first I was having some trouble finding ten cars that really jumped out at me at the 39th Annual Turkey Rod Run in Daytona Beach, FL but by Friday night at Belair Plaza I had more than enough. I actually ended up with about twenty cars that I had picked for the “top ten” but I narrowed it down to ten somehow! Enjoy!

I’m not really sure what this thing is, but it looks like it would be a ton of fun especially for cruising at the beach!

#9
An Oakland, how rare are these things? I can’t remember the last time I saw one especially in running shape!

#8
First off late model Hemi swaps are way under rated in my opinion. But what makes this one so cool is they did it in an odd car. You don’t see very many nicely modified early Barracuda convertibles let alone with a late model Hemi in them.

I’m not sure what exactly it was the caught my eye about this one, heck I’m not even sure what year it is? Early 1950’s though, I like the color, the straight six, love the four speed, its just a cool hot rod!

#5
This thing was just too unique and different not to include. Its a Volkswagon Bug of some year made to look like a 1940 Ford and a woodie at that. Not really my cup of tea, but a nice ride regardless!

#4
Here is a rare one for ya!!

#3
This car could have easily went number two or number one on the list. This 1959 Chevy was a nice blend of original and modern. Notice the air ride controls sitting in the seat.

#2
My late-uncle bought a very similar car to this brand new in 1966. In fact it is still sitting in our garage. Only his wasn’t a convertible and his was a 4-speed. But still the same color, 421 engine, etc. The 2+2’s are pretty rare cars. In all other years they were Catalina 2+2’s but in 1966 they were simply 2+2’s.

#1
When I saw this Friday morning I knew it was going to be number one no matter what else I ran across. I am a HUGE 50’s chevy business coupe fan, we had a 1958 for years that we just sold last spring, you never see any, especially 58’s and 59’s. This one is a very rare example. Business coupe, big block, automatic, air conditioning, power steering, power windows, power seat, padded dash, power brakes. This would be one sweet ride!
