AMBR Contender’s We’ve got pics!

Posted by keith on January 24, 2015  /   Posted in News

Hey, we may be the new kid on the block in the world of internet hot rodding, but don’t let anyone say we’re not on the ball here at Harmedia. It may only be Day 2 of the Grand National Roadster Show 2015 at the Fairplex Pomona. But we already have some cool pic’s of the AMBR contender’s taken especially for us by Rochelle Pall of Bear Metal Kustoms.

It looks like the traditional influences gradually seen at recent shows are really taking hold, with some very cool cars taking the time honoured styles of the past, but re-interpreting them for the 21st Century. Add to that, two totally trad cars, each giving no quarter to any modernism, and while all cars are built to ever greater standards, we have to say, some of the high tech styled cars, while perfect in every detail, are becoming to look a bit samey. You may not  agree and have your own favourites, and that’s fine, all we ask is that you enjoy looking at our pic’s.

By the way, check back later as we have another top photographer covering the GNRS for us which we’ll be adding just as soon as the pics arrive later this week.

Update.  This was the eventual winner of the Americas’s Most Beautiful Roadster award for 2015, so congratulations to the Alloway crew. We have to say though, there’s more than a few thinking that it looks very similar to previous Alloway built cars. Oh well, at least it was a Model 40!
