Nightmares '30 Ford

Words & photos - Daniel Bevis

Mark 'Nightmares Racing' Holmes is a man who knows his way around a quality custom build. In fact, the first magazine feature I ever wrote was on his pro-mod mkI Escort, and the rest of his back-catalogue is further studded with interesting and unusual creations.
His latest steer is this, a 1930 Ford Model A. It features a beguiling mix of classic hot rod tweaks, 1980s/'90s Street Machine cues, and up-to-the-minute additions. Check out, for example, the juxtaposition of old-school pinstriping and 21st-century fuel filler on the rear panel; the retro zig-zags and shiny new wood in the interior, the distinctly un-vintage paint shade and those super-shimmery Centrelines. A fusion of styles, all perfectly blended. Another victory.
