Most of the cars that come out of Joe's shop are destined for the show circuit, and they're usually built to compete in a certain class. This one was built toward the Pro-Touring arena, and has hit a few shows already, but we've heard firsthand accounts of how nice it is to drive. Joe says he has about 40 miles on the car since finishing it, and we suspect he'll log a few more since he already has another modern street rod project in his sights.
