    didn't notice any Hot Rod specific threads here...

    I'm partial to traditional-style hot rods... things that were or could have been built in the 40s, 50s or 60s, rather than the billet Good Guys street rods of the 80s forward... and very partial to Model As...

    H.A.M.B.'er here too.

    I have a thing for 'A' Tudors, using this one as a pattern for a current project.

    HAMB member here as well - my custom hotrod is on the right in this picture

    Both of these cars were built in George Barris' shop in the 1955-57 time period

    That's Barry Mazza with the Aztec on the left and me with the Dean Jeffries Karrera on the right

    Thanks, really dig your sedan as well. No bump steer issues at all with this car, almost hard to believe. I never thought I would have a car like this that could be driven in a normal way in modern traffic. I mean it's a driving experience, don't get me wrong but that's exactly what I wanted. I would say probably 99% vintage parts in this build up.

    You need to make the March Meet or the Hot Rod Reunion at Famoso Raceway, lots of vintage stuff there, and some good racing.

    Looks like it might've been a Bentley in a past life.

    damn fine pattern...

    ok, that is one awesome piece of history right there!

    haven't made it to anything hot rod related (save for a few local shows) in ages. i was at the 2nd (i think) hot rod reunion...

    the past few years my hot rod related activities involve little more than the pile of parts that's my A coupe in the garage... and... ahh... well, that's it :D
