SCENE AT THE 2018 GRAND NATIONAL ROADSTER SHOW
OLD TIN: The vintage steel building welcoming the Suede Palace lends itself ideally to the affair. Being part of the invited (about 50 vehicles) remains an honor. It mixes nicely finished rides and a handful of race cars, plus some survivors, such as Alex “Axle” Idzardi’s ’32 Ford truck (left) originally built in 1958, a true time capsule. Chopped top, channeled body, shortened bed, nerf bars: It’s perfect. Axle happens to be the promoter of the Suede Palace, and he did double duty this year, curating the muscle car display as well.
