There’s something special behind every build, despite who is getting their hands dirty. Be it the idea, the work, or simply the way the car comes together, there are few things better than seeing a dream become reality. The team at Union HZ has put together a short documentary showcasing one very unique build, and we couldn’t be more excited to share “The Real Thing.”
“The Real Thing is a short documentary about custom hot rod builder BODIE STROUD and his re-imagining of a classic Mustang by way of an extremely rare and powerful motor built specifically for legendary racer Mario Andretti’s 1969 Can Am series car.
The film follows the complex and creative build from its early stages, through its initial test drive all the way to an unveiling at the SEMA Car Show in Las Vegas where Bodie comes face to face with Mario Andretti himself.”
