Shannon Hudson, aka "Joe Cool," poses with his '69 Plymouth Valiant. Purchased as a Slant Six for $400, Hudson has worked low-buck magic on the renamed "Violent," scoring a freebie 360 small-block mystery motor that has propelled the A-body to a best e.t. of 12.84/103. Shannon runs Redline Gauge Works (www.redlinegaugeworks.com, 661-259-8891), and is responsible for some of the coolest custom instrument clusters ever seen.
