STREET MACHINE OF THE YEAR
Kathy Lange’s 2004-winning ’55 T-Bird won Goodguys Street Machine of the Year. Aesthetically, this one was perfect as all Alloway builds are. A radical rake, perfect gaps and paint, big back wheels, perfect fit and finish, plenty of chrome and ample power – Kathy’s bad bird pleased the old guard as well as the emerging Pro-Touring crowd. Body mods were not pronounced but they were there – a stretched wheelbase, lowered headlights, tapered fenders and Chevy Nomad rear wheel openings. It was also a harbinger of things to come as it featured a custom Morrison chassis, Alloway-edition Billet Specialties wheels, Wilwood big brakes and a supercharged 5.0 Ford V8. The darker red leather interior was spot-on. At the golf course or on a road course, Kathy’s ‘Bird flies high and mighty.
