A beautiful hot rod does angry things at the Hoonigan Donut Garage

The Hoonigan Daily Transmission series opens a window into the goings-on at the company’s Long Beach headquarters. This is where you’ll find all sorts of machines doing all sorts of vehicular shenanigans. Most often it’s some manner of drift car, but that is certainly not always the case. There are plenty of European sports cars, muscle cars, and even trophy trucks that have stopped by to engage in their given brand of fun.
The latest car to stop by might just be the best one of all. It started life as a standard 1933 Plymouth complete with an inline six-cylinder engine. Since it’s from ’33, that means it’s just five years younger than the company which brought it to life. It’s been given new life, however, at the hands of TJ Russell.
He’s the man behind Russell Built Fabrication and he’s also a self-described Mopar fan. That’s why he didn’t go with some old Ford or Chevy. This Plymouth has been treated to a Chrysler Marine engine, tons of custom front-end bits, and a bit of actual self restraint as well. The body hasn’t been sliced, chopped, diced, or hacked up. The chassis has been reworked to fit the body, and the result is damn near perfect.
I’m no hot rod guy. I can appreciate the work that goes into some of them, but the aesthetic isn’t my thing. This hot rod, however, is damn near perfect.
