"SPLITT DECISION - FIRST START UP !!!" . . . . MY GOOD FRIEND AND SAVANT PERFECTIONIST, CLIFFORD HOAD, HAS FINALLY MANAGED TO KICK HIS CROWNING AUTOMOTIVE GLORY IN THE GUTS AND GIVE IT LIFE . . . . THE INSANE 'SPLITT DECISION' T-BUCKET HAS AT LAST FELT THE TORQUE TWISTING POWER OF THE 440 BOLTED BETWEEN ITS FRAME RAILS . . . . AN ODE TO PERSEVERANCE, PERSISTENCE AND DETERMINATION, IT'S NOW FEATURED IN "HOTROD DELUXE"
A full blown, freaked out sixties style show car, hand built almost entirely by Cliff, the 440 and the drivetrain came from his Challenger he wrote off back in the nineties, the number of one-off, whacked out doodads on this things is unsane, paint, pipes, screen surround, lights, hand polished trans case, drive shaft, steering wheel, the list goes on and on . . . . the man is unbelievably meticulous in his approach to everything he does, hand making all brass shell snare drums, rebuilding dragster bicycles, customising a 66 Coronet complete with KB Hemi, the design of his VG two door Valiant, his music, whatever he does he is the kind of guy who drives you fucking mental with his idiot savant type focus on the task at hand . . . . and now, nearly twenty years from inception, his ultimate statement of 'self' is complete, as flamboyant and out there as the man himself, he has cast the doubters out from their comfortable chairs of a 'do nothing' life and proven, yet again, that when the Sun King speaks, the ensuing action will ultimately vindicate the words that spill from his lips. Huge and hearty congrats Clifforis, 'Splitt Decision' takes the fight by K.O . . . . love ya buddy, you fabulous freak !!!!
