Lead Sled Photo Gallery – Low, Slow and Way Cool
Custom cars, aka Lead Sleds, will never go out of style. The legacies of Sam & George Barris, Larry Watson, Bill Hines, Dean Jeffries, Larry Alexander, Joe Bailon, Bill Cushenbery and so many other lead sled legends is carried forward by custom guys and gals around the globe.
Every year out on the Goodguys event tour, we see pristine customs built in a variety of styles at every event no matter what part of the country we’re in. We see both radical and traditional customs at the Goodguys All American Get-Together every year as that’s the host site for the Goodguys Custom of the Year award. We see Lowriders and traditional customs in Del Mar while back at the Midwestern events like the Heartland Nationals in Des Moines and the PPG Nationals in Columbus we see every day customs (some mild, some traditional) being driven hundreds of miles to the events.
But what we like most about this gallery (all of these images were taken in 2018) and customs in general is you can really enter the custom car scene at any level. If your budget is $15k, get a patina paneled ’54 Chevy or maybe a ’57 Chrysler, dump it on air and get it on some cool wheels and you’re in the door. If you’re a high net worth guy, the sky is the limit on what you can create.
