Massillon, Ohio — October 8, 2014 — This isnâ€™t your grandpaâ€™s Cadillac. It’s been stretched, chopped, and modded, and Matrix Automotive Finishes has just announced that it will feature this one-of-a-kind custom built 1956 Cadillac Roadster Deville, called â€œBlue Streak,â€ in its booth (10669) at SEMA.
Bare Bones Custom Paint & Speed Shop, located in Houston, Texas, will unveil the vehicle. It has experienced a plethora of modifications, from being stretched by four feet to having the roof removed and body made into a Roadster to chopping the windshield, installing air ride suspension, and being painted Matrix Electron Blue Metallic. The list goes on and on, with additional surprises to be revealed only at SEMA.
Last year at SEMA, Bare Bones and designer Mike Satterfield of MP Speed Shop unveiled the Gulf Racing Livery 1967 Ford Fairlane at the Meguiarâ€™s Car Crazy showcase. The car was named one of the top five classic Fords at SEMA by Modified Mustang and Fast Fords Magazine and it was featured in Hot Rod Magazineâ€™s live coverage of SEMA.
â€œWe wanted to do something out of the norm for this build and went full custom on it, to be different and bring the sleek, sexy design of a Cadillac back into the mainstream of custom car building,â€ says Tim Haase, owner of Bare Bones Custom Paint & Speed Shop. â€œIn the past, we have used other products and found that Matrix primers, basecoat, and clearcoats are a higher quality above the rest. Matrix provides a high, durable finish with deep rich colours that our clients require for their collector cars.â€
SEMA runs November 4 to 7 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. For more information on SEMA, please visit semashow.com.
