It would be great inspiration if we could take these builds and have an reference area for them. It would also be nice to edit out all of the atta boys and comments made by others and keep them just post on the build.

You can add Bobbleeds Roadster his Fathers Roadster had some history however it couldn't be found... Johnycola's Roadster... El Jefe's Roadster and a bunch more!

I absolutely love the Race car survivors lately such as the Willy's barn finds as well as a couple of tri-fives...

An observation:

A popular writer/ex-magazine editor recently released an interesting book examining lost and found hot rods.
Ryan,I think you beat him at his own game with this article? With hot rods featured and discussed on the forum too?

Thanks for a great thread.

Ryan, Ryan... you've spent too much time among the rats.

At the risk of offending the multitude, there isn't a single car in that group that I would want to drive -- and the only one worth saving, to me, is the DeSoto powered '40. Well, maybe the channeled 3-window.

Traditional rods and customs, yes, I've always been with you on that. But traditionally they were FIXED UP and well maintained, not allowed to degrade into festering sores. And traditionally they were customized with taste. With apologies to their owners, I think this whole group is just awful.

Get well soon.

Obviously, I couldn't disagree with you more. I think you might have missed the point. These cars survived intact - some are ready to be restored and put back on the street while others are, in my opinion, already ready to go. If you would have followed the links, you would have seen that about 80% of these cars are actually already being restored... and you can follow their progress on the HAMB.

In any case, I still love you. But I would like you more if you would keep those damned Ford Taurus wheels off your car. That was a rebound jab from the RAT comment.

You'd drive the wheels off of it...

Good thread with good links to info on the cars listed. Yes some of them are a bit rough around the edges from sitting for years or neglect but they are all cool and all have some great things on them that guys looking to see "they they were done then" to study.
It's good to see that most of them got restored to what they were like at a certain time with just the right upgrades to make them more drivable but not change them.

I'd say so... I love that car. I've always wondered - do you wish you had it back?

I'm not sure if there's a thread on this car, but it's definitely a survivor!
