6 THE SHOP MARCH 2018 1962 Chrysler 300 E ach November, THE SHOP presents our annual Project Vehicle Sketchbook, a collection of high- profile builds that helps kick off the trade show season. The late summer deadline for submissions, however, means that some top projects introduced at the SEMA Show and elsewhere get left behind. To shine the spotlight on those builds and others, we're happy to present Part II of this popular feature. Be sure to take some time to study and appreciate these amazing cars, trucks, SUVs and custom creations, not just as entertainment, but as inspiration for that next new job that comes through your bay doors.
