Seeing Carroll Smith's '48 Chevy, aka Conundrum, firsthand was one of the highlights of the show, and it rightly deserved its award. Hopefully most of you have seen the Chevy already since we debuted it first on our December '07 cover in its birthday suit followed by a six-page feature inside. The '48 is host to more custom metalwork than you can shake a hammer and dolly at, which was deftly executed at Pinkee's Rod Shop in Colorado. Under the highly altered tin is a one-off C5-based chassis built by Roy Pigford in Texas that houses the LT5 motor and ZO6 six-speed. Oh, did we mention this thing gets driven?
