Just got off the phone with a customer sniffing around for a build. Subject came up about how far away from the past the current show winners seem to be headed. Even the so called traditional builders seem to be so far over the top that tradition seems to be lost. So the question is, could a perfectly executed traditional rod hold it's own against todays overblown street rods? It's a given that everything evolves and in the show game you have to one up the next guy. But is there room at the top anymore for the past? Not interested in defense of the current crop of cars or builds, or just build what makes you happy etc., and I'm not suggesting by any means that I am planning that type of build because I'm not. What do you think?
