Guns Blazing: Joe Lisojo’s Badass Model A
As a kid everything in life is always “bigger is better”. Our toys had flashy colors and lights and at car shows it was more of what caught our eye rather than the quality or rarity of the car itself. As we grow older though our tastes change and we start to notice the small things. Custom fabbed pieces, perfectly lined up trim, and small details that set a car above the rest due to the quality of the build not because it looks like a Fast and Furious prop car.
When I first went through the shots of Joe Lisojo’s 1930 Ford Model A I couldn’t’ get enough. With every passing through the shots I noticed even more minute details and with each picture I went through I got more and more envious of the people that have actually gotten to see this amazing machine in person. Sure it may not be everyone’s taste and sure a car of this style does grab quite a bit of attention just because of what it is but as you make your way past that you notice how sweet this Ford really is.
Every few years Joe takes on a new project. Each one is built just how he wants it and is built by him personally so each project has its own personal flair. On this project his two favorite touches he has added are that this Model A has kick-start and the gas throttle is on the shifter. My personal favorite touch on Joe’s Model A though, are the tail gunner headers which add to the “ready for war” attitude that this car gives off. Its modifications like these that make Rat Rods stand out when you come across them at car shows. They ignore the conventional ideas that are usually put to a car build and create cars and trucks that have you wondering where they even got the idea for their builds.
Throughout this Model A you can see the attention to detail that Joe paid to the build whether it is the motor, interior or exterior. The crazy thing is that every 2 or 3 years he’s bringing the world a new creation to gawk over and I don’t know about you but I can’t wait to see what’s in store.
