Atomic Punk bubbletop custom hot rod auction

atominc-punk-1_2SCKS_48 If I could drive, I would want to drive this bad boy. Up for auction at eBay is the Aaron Grote’s celebrated Atomic Punk bubbletop custom hot rod. This hot rod got a lot of attention at the 2008 Detroit Autorama Extreme.

Aaron Grote says that he has built this thing from the rusty haunches of a ‘59 Plymouth. The motor is a 392 Hemi he front end is chrome drilled and dropped. The Ed Roth inspired hot rod has been seen in several magazines and is currently the Cover Car on the newest Rod and Custom Magazine.

At the moment the bid is just shy of $63k which is about £40k. Not bad considering the press attention it has received, the quality of the build and the fact it is completely unique. The auction ends on November 13th so the price will likely rise, and if you are a UK buyer you would have to ship it over here so yeah the price would likely start to rise a lot. Still if I was a footballer I would drive around in this, it is better than the generic BMWs, Landrovers, and Mercs you see all the footballers driving, maybe not as comfy though.

Truphone mobile VoIP application comes to BlackBerry

Truphone is a free piece of VOIP software that has been available on S60 phones and the iPhone for some time now.

Truphone have now launched a BlackBeryy version of this popular VOIP client allowing users to make free or very cheap phone calls with no roaming charges

Instead of requiring the user to remember what to do, Truphone Anywhere simply asks whether he/she wants to make a Truphone call whenever an international number is dialled. The user simply accepts, and Truphone connects the call. This reduces international call rates to as little as £0.03/$0.06 per minute.

The Blackberry application can be downloaded here
