Description

FRANS has always been a huge fan of the old IndyCar race cars - so he decided to take inspiration from them and create his very own dream motor. Finding a 1930's Nash 88 car online, he shipped it to the Netherlands from North Carolina - and then dedicated four years to transforming it. Naming it Dutchie after his own Dutch heritage, he kept the car's original engine, gearbox and drivetrain as they were, but the design and body of the ride were all down to Frans. He explained: "I didn't want to make a replica - it had to be mine." Getting a metal artist on board, he whipped up his motor into this bold cruiser which pays tribute to the vintage era of car racing. Speaking about using his beloved creation, Frans said: "I use the car when I'm in a good mood and that's quite often. Most people smile and ask what's that. They're surprised that I built it myself. People like it and I like it."

  • Reynaldo Added Very interesting video. Not a practical car, or a technical marvel, but a great car nonetheless. I do wish he'd taken the time to either split the exhaust manifold (like they used to do when putting dual exhausts on cars with inline engines like a Chevrolet 6 cylinder (216s and 235s) way back in the late 40s and early 50s.
