Default Hot Rod Doors



As a group, we are a capricious bunch. Which is ironic when you really think about it. I mean, we do call ourselves traditionalists, right? Even so, one year black Fords with red steel wheels are it and the next they are cliche. Young guys stick thei...

I've been doing the same thing for several years outfitting restaurants with their full color logos. It's fun!

I have to admit that Ryan has most of us pegged,,I know he is talking about people like me,,I don't necessarily live the lifestyle like some do but when it comes to my cars I am fanatical about them,,I eat,sleep and day dream most of my waking hours.

What I want to do,what I wish I could do,my next project.

If I were to spend any time with a professional headshrinker I'm certain I would be labeled as obsessive compulsive.

BTW,,I'm one of the greybeards that still thinks black with red wheels is cool! HRP

An old set of doors like that need a freehand lettering job.

We tend to forget we are a small bunch in the grand scheme of things. So when some folks get on here with peers they want to be seen as on the cutting edge of cool (not Kool anymore) but if I was in the grocery store parking lot and a pick up with those doors and red steelies pulled up, it would stop me in my tracks every time.

I am a car guy. Traditional hot rods are my favorite but I can fully appreciate any car that is someones car they own for love, not transportation.

Wall Art made out of doors is great. One of my favorite things. Black and red wheels... also a personal favorite, because my '54 Buick has been that since I was in high school. Call me what you will but I spend ALL my limited free time thinking about cars... I guess I'm not cool in the eyes of the ones that make the rules, but that's okay with me because I've been this way too long to care.

Ryan [and anyone else who is listening],
They say you can be cool twince in your lifetime if you just stand still long enough, when it was cool the first time and then when it comes back around again.

Trends come and go then they come around again, time is a circle as is life my friend.

I liked the vid myself and the choice of background music shows that the creator of the vid has good taste not just in doors.

I think the production was well done. The automobile and all things pertaining to it occupy my thoughts 99% of the time, with the other 1% being divided up between girls and sleep equally. Furthermore, did anyone else notice how well warn dude's back pocket was from the dip container? A true Texan, haha.

Neat video. Very well done.

I've liked black with red wheels for most of my life...Still do.

I'm too old to be cool so trends don't mean what they used to for me.

I'm kind of seeing a young Garth Brooks rattlecanning a couple of truck doors.
The video was done well.
the lazy guitar certainly got it's hooks in me.
As a painter, I feel BISHOP's pain.

We all tend to follow trends and our tastes.
My destination involving cars was carved at a very early age,
It developed into my lifestyle.
Wouldn't want it any other way.

Well done video! The slo-mo pace and the music make it. Don't worry about what fad is in or out, or what other people like. Like what you like and be passionate about it. Yup, I've got a red-wheeled w/whitewalls ride (as a matter of fact, two). Good read and video.
