I'm out in central Vic at the moment, fires out here are not as fast moving as those in the east of the state. So while they are close we are...
That's really cool. We are glad to see your progress.
Yup. And I'm sure a lot of people who build turbo LS and Barras and whatnot love traditional hot rods too. But attainableness and fun matter Alot.
Heres a few small factors that are currently limiting demand:
A Strong US dollar is has increased costs for overseas buyers. A few years ago...
T.E.N the parent company of many of the mags that have been killed off seem to be moveing heavily into subscriber video content.
Great progress, it's cool to see there's a traditional hot rod and chopper scene in Queensland as I'm moving there next year
Deadend stuff has always been super cool, thanks for reminding me about them
Cool lookin garage, it’s plain to see you are taking the time to take good photos which we appreciate.

Well that’s proper cool

Whenever I need a seat for a project (im an auto upholsterer) and The customer wants to use something other than an original seat . I'll hit up...
Small 50s-60s English cars are a good source of fold forward bucket seats, Morris minor, ford anglia etc.
That's a well dressed LS, very cool.
Coil spring seats can be very comfortable. And when rebuilt correctly using wadding will last many many years. Far longer than modern foam...
I like the magazine a lot. It's much better than it was.
Especially if I view the words "hot rod" as a verb.
I think many traditional hot...
Sounds like a great trip! Have fun we'll be watching :)
Gets a new set of rings every year... i'll let myself out.
Car looks great. Congratd on getting it finished
Roadkill is probably the first show that actuslly reminds me of actual hot rod life... Its mostly about breaking down on road trips in cool cars.
