Custom Dodge Rams have popped up like crazy on the show scene lately, and Mathew Bradshaw's tribal-flamed and 'bagged 2000 version is one of the coolest we've seen.

You just can't beat an ultra-clean classic Chevy, and the body styles from '55-'57 are among the most popular. Dan Doke, owner of ATS Design, owns this smooth, red beauty.

Take a look at our SUV of the Year coverage and see how all the vehicles faired in the Feb. '05 issue.
