…It’s Tuner Tuesday: GAZ-51 Cadillac Escalade EXT?

GAZ-51 Hot-Rod

Believe it or not, this GAZ-51 inspired hot-rod truck actually started out life as a Cadillac Escalade EXT truck!

The Russian creation was made by a company called ‘Grande-Garage’, and though little is known about it other than the fact that it looks great on the outside, is being built for a Russian plutocrat, and inherited quite a unique past, it’s definitely an interesting project to keep an eye on.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: STRUT?


Today’s tuner is a little different. STRUT doesn’t do engines, suspensions, or transmissions. STRUT does automotive accessories. This isn’t just any old mom and pop accessory business that sells the latest glue on grills through your local Pep Boys though. Oh no. STRUT caters to a higher end clientele. You may have seen their stuff on Unique Whips, and obvious devotee of the STRUT line. That’s because STRUT is the name to trust when you want to add a little bling to your Bentley, luxury to your Land Rover, or class to your Cadillac. They don’t even like to call the products they sell accessories, preferring the words “automotive jewelry” instead.

Their automotive jewelry collection is “designed for discriminating automotive enthusiasts who demand the height of sophistication and style in all of life’s passions”. Each piece is handcrafted from chromed 316L stainless steel, hand-polished, then signed by the artisan, and is designed to provide “ongoing luster and a superior appearance” through any weather condition.

I definitely like the look STRUT is going for, with very clean lines and a smooth, subtle appearance. STRUT specializes in grilles, hood vents, side vents, replacement badges, and accessory plates, with a focus on turning your everyday ride into a STRUTmobile, and I definitely wouldn’t mind having one of those.
