Several years ago when Lexus for looking to build a project car, they commissioned Rod Millen to build a few head-turners. One particular project that got the attention of many is the project '32 Hot Rod.
I first saw this at the Lexus Gone Wild EOS event the summer of 2003. This Hot Rod was equipped with a big V8. Infact it is the same motor from the LS430. Rod Millen fitted the modern motor to a full metal high-boy. Add some fine one-off wheels, carbon fiber pieces and a killer set of custom headers and you have yourself a Japanese V8 powered Domestic Hot Rod.
To this day, I have not seen a better execution of mixing different cultures into one excellent example of what could be done if more people would think outside the box.
