Douglas Scruggs of Bullard, Texas with his ‘38 Chevy he rebuilt in the 90s. “It was a rust bucket. It was a pile of junk. It was solid rust,” he said.
Scruggs spent two years rebuilding the car using parts from junkyards including pieces from Lincolns, Volkswagens, and a Mercury. Most of the interior is from an ‘88 Grand Am. “Some people spend $25,000 on the interior, but we didn’t do that. I didn’t go to a catalog or a magazine to get my parts, I got them from a wrecking yard.”
He got the idea for the unique paint job from a car he saw in Memphis, Tennessee. He and his wife Betty have put many miles on the hot rod, taking it Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri and beyond. “I’m not scared to drive it, I’d go to California right now,” he said, “I have boxes and boxes of awards from this thing.”
