This is one snazzy-looking Hot Rod. It's more than just nice looking though - it's a great combination of newer studless Technic pieces on the bottom and more conventional building techniques on the top. A look at the model's bottom reveals a studless frame with suspension, steering, and a simplified gear train made entirely without the familiar LEGO studs (but still out of LEGO parts). The rest of the model, such as the perfect interior and opening doors, have been made with the more traditional LEGO parts we all know and love. If you look closely, you can spot some clever techniques used to connect the top and the bottom of the model as well.
