    I was just wondering how many of you guys liked Hot Rods. I have a 30 Model A with a 351 Windsor 330 HP. It really scoots. The 57 T-Bird is my wife's. It only rolls on Sunday afternoons if it is pretty out. My Model A is on the road all the time. It gets lots of looks.

    Cut off the cab and put a truck bed on it and you got my dream truck. Nice pics.

    The old man has a 32 Plymouth Street Rod with a 66 model 426 Hemi powering it. Is quite a wild ride. Many other muscle cars.

    1967 Plymouth GTX - big block 4-speed
    1962 Dodge Dart
    1956 Plymouth Savoy - 2- Door
    about 30 others in the field in line to be worked on

    Myself I just bought a 72 Dodge Challenger big block. Gotta start on it this winter.

    I built about 75% of the 30 Model A. It had a 289 in it when I got it and I had a 351 Windsor built for it and put it in. I put a new front end under it out of a mustang II. Completly rewired it and did a new interior, carpet and rumble seat. I had the flames painted on it and they have skulls airbrushed in the yellow part. I bought the 57 T-Bird off the internet. It was in California and I had it shipped to N. C. on a truck. I bought it after seeing only a small picture of it. My wife was scared that we would get shafted but I had a lot of faith in the seller. It turned out real well as we got a perfect car. It was sold new in Oakland, Cal. in Feb. 1957 and has been there ever since. Never wrecked and never any rust.

    You are wrong about that. That is definitely a hot rod. Just not an old one. I'm a FORD man and that looks goooood.
