This was one our favorite rods at Barrett-Jackson this week. Dubbed Z-Force, it's a gorgeous 1937 Ford Roadster with a 500-hp ZR-1 engine backed by a 6-speed ZF transmission. The builders claimed there were over 200 body modifications, most very subtle but necessary to make this truly a piece of rolling sculpture. The whole drivetrain is chromed or polished. It has a 1200-watt stereo for when the engine alone won't do, 14" brake rotors with 6-piston calipers for when you spot the po-po, and one-off 18- and 22-inch wheels for when you want to show people how you roll. The high quality of the workmanship is so apparent that it should come as no surprise that this was a multiple show award winner. Among the hardware it has collected are the Ridler Great "8" at Detroit; "Millwinder" at Houston; "Boyds Pic" at Indy; Best Rod Atlanta & Georgia's Finest; and Top "25" Shades of the Past. The buyer got a great car and a great deal too. Replicating this car would cost much more than the winning $150,000 bid.
