STREET MACHINE OF THE YEAR
Denny Terzich has a knack for performance cars and this ’56 Shoebox was best at Columbus in the summer of 2002. The rocker-dragging stance was thanks to a Fatman front clip, while an early RideTech ladder bar system shored up the business end. It didn’t lack for power. If more is good, “much more” was better in this case. A dressed and detailed engine bay housed a rowdy jewel – an 895hp 572c.i. carbureted big block with a Turbo 400 trans equipped with a Gear Vendors overdrive and 4:56 gears inside a Currie rear end. The channeled body was straight as an arrow with through-the-body exhaust, perfect gaps, two-tone paint and a trick hood scoop with a Bobby Alloway-made blister. Continuing in the Pro-Touring vein, this one had no “meats” either.
