is Hot Rod magazine saying
about the Rodster® street rod?
by Rob Kinnan
of the Director's Choice award at the Knott's Berry Farm Handcrafted
Auto Show last April was Henry Caroselli's Rodster®, a kit
car with a different spin. The big problem with kit cars is that they're
a pain in the neck to register, but the Rodster® composite
body sits on an '82-'94 Chevy two-wheel-drive S-10 Blazer chassis and
uses the truck's powertrain, smog controls, windshield, doors, and interior
parts. This means that it retains the Blazer's registration, eliminating
that headache. A Carson-style top is in the works, and plenty of parts
are available to slam and modify an S-10 Blazer, so there's a lot of
hot rodding room here, especially when you consider that it removes
600 to 700 pounds of vehicle weight. For more information, contact Caroselli
