ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons talks hot rods, cool cars
Of the famous Eliminator coupe, Gibbons says he commissioned So-Cal Speed Shop to build the car in 1976. Seven years later, it starred in the band's "Gimme All Your Lovin'" video and then "Legs" and "Sharp Dressed Man."
Gibbons tells the story of another of his rods, CadZZilla. The creation of the lead sled involved a dice game on the Mexican border, former GM designer Larry Erickson, Boyd Coddington and the obligatory cocktail napkin.
The list of Gibbons' hot rods is longer than his facial hair, but there's apparently room in the garage for more. His latest creation, Wiskeyrunner, is another '33 Ford, but when So-Cal finishes with it, the unique rod will look nothing like Eliminator.
