That's right! You can find Walden Speed Shop built hotrods featured in both the September and October issues of Street Rodder magazine.
In the September Issue we were honored to have two cars chosen for the "Street Rods of the Future: Eight of the Greatest Bare Metal Rides Now Being Built" which featured the Walden Speed Shop owned 1932 Ford Roadster Pickup as well as Bill Allen's full-fendered 1932 chopped 3-window coupe. Thanks to Tim Bernsau for the great write up and Jorge Nunez for the studio shots which truly showcased the high level of craftsmanship we put into each build.
The Takehito Yamato coupe made its way into the October Issue (on newsstands now) with an article titled "Absolute Zero" awesomely written by Kev Elliott and masterfully photographed by Tim Sutton. We are so grateful to have such a talented photographer and writer document our work, blowing us away with their vision on a project like this which we are so proud of.
The Takehito Yamato Coupe Named "Best Street Rod" at Street Rod National Plus in Japan and Featured in Many Top Publications
Takehito Yamato has another plaque to add to his collection after winning "Best Street Rod" at the Street Rod Nationals Plus in Chiba Japan. He was also awarded the 2014 Classic Instruments "Classic Trophy Dash" at the Goodguys West Coast Nationals in Pleasanton, as well as the prestigious invitation from Mooneyes to be an invited guest at the Mooneyes Yokohama Hot Rod Custom Show in Japan.
We are also proud of the many features in Flywheels, Cruisin, Motorhead, and Street Rodder magazines. And of course we couldn’t be happier to see it being driven and enjoyed!
