Jun 11, 2013 update to the Tornado Typhoon project car

Our Tornado Rolls Through Michigan

Thanks to the team at Eclectic Motorworks, our Tornado Typhoon is now a roller. Originally, our partners at Eclectic Motorworks were just going to store the Typhoon and transport it to the Import Carlisle show in pieces, where we would pick it up to transport it to home-base in Florida for restoration.

With a little coaxing, curiosity got the best of owner Carl Heideman and his sons Jack and Chris. One Saturday they dug all the parts for the car out of boxes and put enough of the car together for it to look nearly whole and be appropriate to display at Import Carlisle.

As we needed to do a bunch of transport on usually open trailers and store the car here until we can get it in the queue for restoration, having it largely together has been a godsend. It also gave us our first real look at what the are was going to be like when completed.
