    Episode 1 - What's in the Garage? - On Today! April 3rd at 11:30am EST

    Episode 1 - What's in the Garage? - Bill Crowder in Shelbyville, Tennessee


    Our first episode start Bill Crowder and his personal collection of Lead Sleds and Rat Rods and a 2009 Jack Roush BlackJack Mustang, the #7 car of 100 built with only 700 miles on it.



    Season 1 - Episode - 1 - Autogeek's What's In The Garage





    Before the show started, I shared Autogeek.net (our online store), and AutogeekOnline.net, (our detailing discussion forum), with Bill to give him some background on our company and what we do in the car appearance industry.



    This is Bill's 1965 Riviera GS - This car has a 425 Buick Nailhead Big Block Engine with a Turbo 400 and an Air Ride Suspension. The hood is custom fit by Bill and is off a 1967 Camaro.



    All customizations, bodywork and paintwork were performed by Bill himself...



    Bill mentions the steering wheel in the episode...



    This is Bill's 1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Convertible - This low riding custom has a 302 Small Block mated to a C6 Automatic Transmission with an Air Ride Suspension and Lakes Pipes.





    All customizations, bodywork and paintwork were performed by Bill himself...



    In this episode, Bill talks about his Hula Girl and the Suicide Know on the steering wheel...



    Long.... and low....

    Re: Episode 1 - What's in the Garage?

    Continued...

    This is Bill's Rat Rod 1935 Chevrolet Truck - The engine is a 302 Small Block Chevy with custom fitted Hemi Valve Covers. It has a Turbo 350 and a Ford 9" Rearend.





    I love the Hand Grenade Shifter Lever and the hand poking out of the dash to hold your cold beverage!



    Bill's two sidekicks are Duke and Rocky named after John Wayne and Sylvester Stallone, he says a couple of serious business guard dogs need some high power series names. These two buddies were pretty cool and as friendly as can be...



    This is Bill's Rad Rod 1930 Model 2-Door Sedan - The engine is a 454 Big Block Chevy with a 6:71 Blower backed-up by a Turbo 400 Transmission and a Ford 9" Rearend.



    This is the 32" Lokar Nostalgia Double Bend Shifter and the same one I ran in my 1966 Chevrolet Milk Truck. Very cool shifters... highly recommended...





    If you look to the right of Bill and I you can see Ted Jones giving directions to Brendan the Producer and also the #1 Cameraman.

    Re: Episode 1 - What's in the Garage?

    Continued...

    This is Bill's 1957 Oldsmobile 4-door Hardtop Super 88 - The engine is a 350 Small Block Chevy with a Turbo 350 Transmission. This lowrider has a Continental Kit, Air Ride Suspension and Electric Doors. I somehow didn't get any still shots of this car but am working on getting a few more pictures from his daughter.



    Of course, being a "Car Guy", Bill has tons of spare parts hanging on the wall like this set of old rusty headers...



    Here's a pair of Teardrop Spotlights next to a Skull... the perfect addition to anyone's garage decor...



    Spare engines in just about every corner of the garage...



    Valve Covers, Radiator Shell, Intake Manifolds complete the "Car Guy Look"...



    I'm not sure what this is but I'm guess a good luck demon?



    This was actually a picture on his wall and another car from his past...



    Here's Rocky and Duke...



    It was a real pleasure meeting Bill and learning about his cars and the stories behind them... he's a real nice guy, talanted craftsman and super "Car Guy".



    And of course, the old rusty Esso Gas Pump sitting outside was really cool...



    We all wish...




    Here's how the show ends... when Bill tells me to pay the tenants... he was referring to Rocky and Duke!



    If you're ever in the Shelbyville area, be sure to stop by Bill's Diner and say "Hi" and while you're there enjoy some good down home cooking! The food is EXCELLENT!

    I agree John... I found after working at cars shows like GoodGuys, World of Wheels, Portland, Tacoma and Seattle Roadster Shows, that after 2-3 days of looking at blinding shine... to then look at satin black paint was easy on the eyes...

    I like Rat Rods too... kind of had one but only because it never got to paint...

    Pulled out the stock 390 Cadillac Big Block engine and 4-speed Hydro-Matic and installed a 468 Big Block Chevy backed up by a Turbo 400, the 390 was no slouch as anyone that's driven a 59 or 1960 Caddy knows... but like the saying goes... there's no substitute for cubic inches...

    Hi Richard,

    Yeah Bill really has a cool collection of different types of rides, I really liked the 1935 Chevy Truck, wish I would have taken a picture of the truck bed.

    I talked to Bill yesterday and he says he's got new project in the works but wouldn't elaborate, I'm confident I'll have a chance to see both him, his dogs and his new project sometime in the future...

    And the food at his diner is one of the best kept secrets of Shelbyville...

    I thought the old saying was "There's no replacement for displacement..."
