Default Oh Canada...

Jeff Norwell sent an email a few weeks ago with some vintage shots of a few Candadian hot rods and customs. I actually forgot about the email, but rediscovered it last night and thought I would post the images here for your enjoyment.

It all s...

I am from Buffalo, NY, however I am too young to remember that car. I do have the memories of my father telling me about the Clutch Artists and how that was THE club in Buffalo back in the day. They still are very present and up until recently I believe, they hosted the Autorama each year. In fact, the new Rodder's Journal talks about the Clutch Artists and another club in one of the car profiles. Some of the older guys will probably be able to step up and talk a bit more about that car.

There were some really cool cars that scream east coast in those shots. Thanks to the Norwell for sharing.

31Whitey, I knew you would chime in with your love of these type of rods.

The tire and wheel selection is pretty rad on this one.

I love how just about every photo is cropped off to the left... He must have been having a view finder problem of some sort.

Yep, it's our radical right-wing viewpoint.

Hey hey, what Jeff's doing with the cows in his neck of the woods is his business. What happens in Orangeville...

That RPU "Commache" is something PETA or SPCA could use.

Those Canadians were kind of crazy. That red truck is pretty darn nice though. I like that. I just love seeing old vintage car photos of any sort. It is kind of amazing how much stuff there was and the kind of extensive and somewhat wacky work a lot of people did to their cars. The camo paint scheme is definitely a bit unique for a hot rod.

"Simulated pony hide"... Fetal calf hide works well for interiors as the hair is short and usually soft. Use Holstein skins and tell PETA it's fetal Panda!!
