    ...and NOT the hightech ones, they're [​IMG]!!

    Well, as many here already know, I not only love WWI and WWII aviation among other things, but also retro hot rods and kustoms, some rat rods are cool too! I think that hot rods and Kustoms looked their best from the early years and possibly up to the very early 60's, after that it went downhill and into the cr*pper! If any of you have any cool pics please do post them!8) :D

    Nope, haven't been to a car show in many years. Don't have the cash to own one so it's a bit hard to go to a show and drool over the cars others have built. C'mon lottery ticket!!! I need a new ride;)

    you are right the best "Hotrods" were up to the mid 60s for the most part. from then on the muscle muscle cars took over. its the regulations for what could be driven on the roads of most states that sort of squelched the hotrod genre. now you have an certain "exceptions" under the classic car status which allow them on the road for limited time and limited mileage.

    my pappy said "son, you are going to drive me to drink'n if you dont stop driv'n that Hot...rod...Lincoln!"

    I got my start of street rod appreciation at a very early age...

    My Mom had a cream colored '40 Ford convertible with a 49A flathead V8 and my Dad had a ermine white/corinthian red '57 Chevy Nomad wagon with a fuel injected 265 V8 when they met...

    The irony is, Mom is a Chevy fanatic and Dad is a die-hard fan of Ford and if that's not enough to confuse ya', I currently own a 1962 Chevy Nova 400, a 1966 Ford Mustang, a 1979 BMW 320i and a 2008 Scion tC...lmao
