    So it took me 3 years and 11 month to build this car, it was a very fun and interesting experience and my biggest challenge. Here's a short video of yesterday's first attempt which is a success! Some minor adjustements on suspension, brakes, coolant leak will be done and It'll be ready to go! Thanks to everyone who helped me out with my numerous questions on the HAMB. Now I'm ready for another project! :D enjoi!


    1962 327 300hp sbc. offy 3x2 intake, holley carbs, brockman mellowtone mufflers.

    In 2 minutes and 36 seconds, you captured the one, TRUE joy of hot rodding. That video encapsulates what the owners of manufactured vehicles will NEVER understand. The feeling you get and cherish from building something that is YOU.

    Congrats and happy motoring.

    Very well done, congrats on the fantastic job. Just out of curiosity, how are the cops in Quebec with regards to fenderless hot rods?

    Wow! Thanks for all the great comments! I'm having a real good time with my new toy!

    Never heard anything bad concerning fenderless hot rods and there's quite a few. What about Ontario?
