    Uhh, the 38 ford truck was built with a welder, a couple 4 1/2" grinders, drill, brake and a chopsaw.

    NO AIR TOOLS, TORCH OR PLASMA CUTTER. I got witnesses.

    I should keep my mouth shut because I'm a Pro,, Okay I guess I should remove all the tech stuff I have posted here, and go sit in the corner.

    And no matter what your saying,, your truck at its core is OFF FUCKIN TOPIC.

    Edit::: sawzall and basic assortment of hand tools were also used in its construction

    sure it is,, I remember Pops talking about the 22" billets he had on his 50 chevy back in 62.......

    OFF TOPIC....

    This isnt the forum for those type builds. Find another where you fit in. Or at least respect the rules and post on topic builds.

    Not a like or dont like what your doing, its simply not the place for those builds.
     
  6. i like the truck.. all but the frame anyways.. you've got obvious talent.. keep it up.. but i do have to warn you, you're going to get reamed for putting 20's on a 57 ford now..

    Hey dude, I am no pro or claim to be one. I do this as a hobby no money gain intended. I just like buiding things, and trying to keep pushing the envelope of the next coming builds (look at FOOOSE) I think we should shake hands and just be glad we can do what we like before the OBAMA and crew shuts us all down for carbon credits.LOL Just for the record my grandkids like it, I just turned 49 this year, it hard this to keep up with you guys but I am trying.... Lets see if this truck hits the RAT MAGS....???

    thats all well and good, Dude, but most of Fooses stuff is off topic here too.

    and if your highest goals are to be in OlStool Rodzzzzz, you are definately in the wrong place.
     
  11. uh oh..... Hang on for a scolding bud.....

    not a difference in style, its off topic. For traditional rods, your stuff isnt traditional. Not that thats a bad thing, (whole different arguement) just doesnt belong here.

    Thanks for the compliments, I do appreciate them!

    You are a very talented guy but Rat Mags are not in this boards vocabulary (speaking for myself). You have been here for almost 2 years and have seen the type of Hot Rods and Customs that are built here.

    Tinman said it best. I personally like your truck, but this it the wrong site for it. My 40 I'm building isn't very traditional either, but there were not an abundant amount of hot rodded pick ups back then. YOU GUYS should be easier on him. I know it sucks for me. I love this site, and I'm busting my balls building my pick up everyday. It is sad for me to know that once it is close to completion I cannot share pictures of my accomplishments on here without recieving death threats, haha. I on the other hand know that MY build is not going to be very HAMB approved. This guy just doesn't get it.

    Before this thread meets it's fairly predictable demise, I just wanted to express myself. This site is committed to a certain way of doing things, although a few exceptions do slip through the cracks. Mostly, because of the constant flood of new members who fail to do their homework before joining and posting here, or just don't get it. True, you may have a lot of time and hard work invested in your build and I can appreciate the fact that you did it with a tight budget, but an inboard rocker front suspension with airbags and a tribal styled frame, don't jazz well here, though I think you know that by now. On top of that, later model bobber trucks are a modern trend and a few are getting tired of having them crammed down their throats. Sorry.:rolleyes:

    Thats why I didnt post a build thread on the 38, its not a tradtional thing.

    Also very tired of the "Fuck the haters/build Gods/hamb police keep posting" guys.

    Traditional Site!

    Its ok to like other style cars,, for instance I have a fetish for Pacers, and mid 80s Cutlass Supremes,,,, but I dont post them here.

    No offense but what you think can fit here has no bearing, rules are rules and if I wanted to see those builds I would be on a different website.

    Thanks, but they are right. It really dose not belong here. This site is dedicated to the TRAD buiders not so much to the new trend we see today. I give them total respect to hold on to a fading tradition that has over run by customs, street rods, sleds, and shoud I say rat rods. This site is of the few that they can get togeather and hold to what they see as tradition. There are plenty of sites that have builds more inline with what we see on the seen today. I say again I GIVE TOTAL RESPECT TO KEEP THIS SITE FOR WHAT IT WAS INTENDED FOR. Oh by the I seen today somone posted a MG sprit.......... and nary a word from the TRADS....... nice

    Hey Bustedknuckle,your truck is ok,ain't my style ,the frame that is,but it looks like a ton of hand finishing.You took a piece of shit cab ,a hood,made the rest.The side view has got a long nose art deco look,nice.
    And for sure a home made frame is way more traditional than putting the sheetmtal on a S-10 or bought M2 front end chassis.
