Foose is known for radical automotive designs that push the boundaries of what people expect in a custom car. But there are some designs the famed hot rod builder has cultivated that were troubled at best. The Hemisfear was a Hemi-powered roadster that got a lot of inspiration from the Plymouth Prowler. The problem with this one was the radical design which was more over the top than anything. The thing looked a lot more like a hot wheel than an actual production car (via Chip Foose).
There is no denying that Foose was all over the place with this design. It was highly radical, which is why most enthusiasts just didn’t like it. Although Foose likes to compliment the Hemisfear as some of his best work, it wasn’t. Foose has focused his attention on muscle cars and restoration projects over the past couple of years. Although there were a lot of cool aspects about the Hemisfear, it just didn’t resonate with Foose’s traditional fan base.
