The Roadchamp Coupe defies categorization. It's a little bit of everything, and it adds up to a very clean, very cool hot rod we wish we could take home.

Let's say you're interested in tearing a hole in the space-time continuum, the 2009 Detroit Autorama weapon of choice? Undoubtedly, it'd be this Pro Comp 1930 Ford Coupe.
This may be the first time we've seen the old n' trusted Trans Am-based KITT and the new n' busted Mustang GT500KR-based KITT together at the same time. Seems like it's PSA time.
