Well Ryan,it's cool to know,i'm not alone in not really being into customs,although this place is slowly converting me. Prefer 40s and 50s hot rods,but now,a few clean subtle customs are catching my interest,although pre 40s cars there too.

I have to agree with buzzard here...the new board certainly has alot more information..almost too much to keep up with...I have sooo many bookmarked pages...but the same applied then as it does today: if you needed help, you got it. This hokey ass message board will be in tomorrow's history books for sure.

I guess I "imprinted"in the 50's.I use to go down to the drugstore and read the little books.I'd score some and I still have them.My Brother read Hot Rod ,so I'd look it over when it came in.
Anyway,that was the style I always liked.
I went into bikes big time and then one day I had to take a client to Ken Gross's house to look at his bike.He was working on a 32 roadster with an Ardun motor.It was kind of like seeing an old girlfriend or something,the passion was back.I started going to the Rodders Reunion in Ky.
I came across this site and that was like getting a final push back.I later scored a nice period piece from a fellow Hamber.It looks like something built in 1950.
I dig early customs too.Of course,I'd dig more garage space too.......

Back then I was just lurker because of the flaming that seemed to keep me away and over at Fordbarn. Tman kept after me to jump in and get my feet wet, and I haven't been sorry I did. Like Ryan has said recently, the site has much more content on it now than ever before.

I like the post war era for both Hot Rods and Customs. I recently have been reading the few old Hot Rod magazines I've collected from 1950-1956 and I find that I like most of the cars in them, especially the Bonneville and lakes coverage. Wally Parks did a fantastic job writing and editing that magazine, and laying the foundation for everything we have now. His editorials show history as it was being made. Don Francisco did some great tech articles too.

My favorite Hot Rods, Deuces of course! The Doane Spencer, Vic Edelbrock, Joe Nitti, McGee/Scritchfield roadsters were the best. The Pearson Brothers '34 and '36 coupes were the cream of the crop too.

Customs aren't my passion but anything Harry Westergard did works for me. Sam and George Barris's early work is great too.

I'm just basking in a wealth of knowledge and friendship, but I like things that arent popular and I like cleanliness, and I like detail. Crisp lines and a healthy smile to share it all with.

That was right after you had changed formats. I hadn't re-registered yet. Believe it or not I was shy back then... I got over it.

I have to say 55-65 is my favorite although there are things I dig from all era's. I like the can do attitude of the day. If you wanted to go racing, get a few buddies together, pool your time and $$$ and hit a national event. Try that today.

Things really seemed to have changed once the muscle cars hit.

that was indeed a blast.... "Fat girls with tattoos"... you know that went downhill fast... There are things I like about the old days vs. now... But for the most part I have to agree with Buzzard, though I do say every once and a while someone will rub ya the wrong way and you just want to tear into them.... lol....

I remember that thread too

the paul on page 2 is not me, I was still lurking or had just joined under my full name, soon after I asked Ryan to change my name to 60's Style,
because of that thread.

Hot Rods, I like 'em all, pre-war, post-war and up through the sixties
most of what I build somehow ends up with a '60s flavor though

same with customs,
'really dig all the great builds '30s through the '60s
because true beauty is timeless
