The Annual World of Wheels made stops around the United States earlier this year. World of Wheels is an opportunity for Hot Rod builders, classic car restoration specialists, and modern day customizers, to showcase their talent with some of America’s most impressive cars.

At Classic Chrome Painting, we love a good car show. Seeing the work of enthusiasts from around the country, reminds us exactly why we love to help clients with chrome plating rims and other parts on their own custom rides.

Here are three of the best at recent shows:

Three Generations of Batmobile

Although not every car will make it to every city, if you’re in a major US location then you may have been lucky enough to see not one, not two, but three Batmobiles from different generations of the franchise. The original Batmobile was based around a 1955 Lincoln Futura, which was a concept car that has no comparable production model.

The original concept with exaggerated fins, chrome plating wheel hubs, and iconic white sidewall tires, is a far cry from what the Batmobile eventually became, but it represents almost everything that we love about classic cars.

1941 Willys Street Rod

The Willys Coupe is a classic hot rod, although it is one that not everyone would be familiar with today. This is one curvy car, and especially more so than the muscle cars that would come in later decades. There was a pristine example on the show floor, build by Dan Juliette in Michigan. This sweepback beauty would do any owner proud. You can check out Dan’s tuned version over at Watson Racing.

1967 Pontiac GTO

According to the Daily Herald, this car, owned by Russ and Janet Van Camp from Michigan, is no newcomer to the show car scene. Although it has been doing the rounds for some time, it hasn’t stopped wowing audiences. In fact, it has become something of a fan favorite. There’s plenty of chrome on this particular model, so as experts in chrome plating rims, we definitely know a good thing when we see it. The car is clean, immaculately restored and preserved, and it’s one that we’re sure we’ll see at shows for many years to come.

As shows like the Annual World of Wheels sweep over the continent, it’s the perfect time to get out there and see the work that’s being done on the auto scene. If you’re interested in your own project, why not start by talking to the team at Classic Chrome Plating? Chrome plating wheels, bumpers, and other accent parts are what we specialize in. We’d love to turn your classic car into a head turning show stealer. Talk to us today to begin your next project.
