The guys at the Royal Jokers Blog got me thinking when they posted a picture of the Robbie Martinez '50 Olds Clone done by Gary Minor. And i began thinking about cars that have been cloned in recent years, here are some examples of a few cars that were inspiration to others and they just had to have a copy of!
So, which car would YOU clone!???

This is a picture of OldSchool George taken during a club trip up to Nor Cal for STONEYPALOOZA.
George is now a full LBCC member, but when this picture was taken he was a club prospect. George rolls around in lowered, flaked, furry, and finely striped 1970 wagon that he calls FuterShock. But anyone who knows Goerge or anyone who has spent time with this club knows that it's not just about the car.... it's about the person behind the wheel.
So why does this picture make me smile???
I smile becuase I think of our club brother who drives around with a rubber fish in his car. Or the twin cops in the club. Or the cat that rips the bills off all his hats. Or the guy that looked at a Caddy and saw a Rivi. Or the brother who fly's across the country with a blow-up doll in his carry-on. Or the Swedish homeboy's that make everything they touch their "BEEETCH". As a club we have a resident therapist and a whole lot of people who need therapy.
I guess I really like this picture of our newest club brother Old School George becuase when the cruising is done and the garage door closes... well... a guy holding a six pack of bud-lite while posing as Cookie Monster on kids train... well... he ain't so crazy. He's just another one of my LBCC brothers.
