As Season 5 begins, Matthew Fox finds himself searching for answers to yet another great riddle: Is there life after Lost?

By Peter Richmond

In a nondescript garage on a dead-end street in an industrial neighborhood south of Los Angeles, a half-dozen motorheads gaze in reverence at the time-warped creature that sits before them, a visitor from a distant era when men were men and horsepower was the ultimate in masculine cool. "This thing," says Fast Ed the upholstery guy, "is going to be a monster." The man standing next to him, beer in hand, nods idly, but his mind is elsewhere. He's here for only a few days, and there's much to be done. The Grand National Roadster Show at the Fairplex in Pomona is less than three months away. The 502-horsepower big-block Chevy engine has yet to be installed, and the avocado-colored bull leather must still be stitched into the interior. Right now, Matthew Fox's attention is riveted on the automotive artisan intently laying pin-striped tape in flowing flame shapes onto the bulbous ebony flanks of a sweetly sinister 1950 Mercury.
