    Well, at least he is on a rural road and not on the freeway with a bunch of soccer mom NASCAR wannabes!

    I really Like his creativity and building skills to create a road worthy hot rod in todays economy at a reasonable co$t.
    I think this is an excellent example to all first time rodders of what can be achieved with creativity.
    Thanks to A Boner for sharing this story!

    Great story. I built a 34 pickup some years ago that was very similar.....wish I still had it.
     
  9. Kind of reminds me of the first 30 years of my life. Seat belts? Those are in airplanes. Why would you want one in a car?

    The one thing Youtubers don't get is that law enforcement watches these videos also. There have been a few that have been charged with crimes including child endangerment.

    I’m glad someone thinks the same as me. Lots of people look at me strange when I won’t take my lad in my Willys because of no belts

    I dunno...I can't argue that it IS a well built hot rod. BUT, it has a little too much of that rat rod "shock" for me...too low, too loud, sparse interior, suicide front axle etc. Just because you use a bunch of vintage parts, it doesn't make it a "tradional" hot rod.
    And I don't recall seeing many (any) old pics of this style "phone booth" pickups running the dry lakes/Bonneville...or on the street for that matter.

    Again, nicely built Rod...just a little too rat roddy, and a confusing concept. JMHO.

    No seat belt for at least the passenger?! No worries as they would most likelily get ejected and land on something hard incurring serious injury of even death. I don't get these "hard core" guys who build stuff they think is traditional and is really an interpretation of traditional with the more over the top look the better.

    Actually, he's cruising the I-15 Frontage Rd. It's a very busy area for traffic and Lake Elsinore is a busy place with gnarly traffic. He knows that he would have got the big seat belt ticket if he was pulled over.
    It's really growing out there. Has been very developed for 40 years and is still going on with no end in sight.
    I wonder if he cruises the Grand Ave. circle and heads over to the Tom's Farms?
    I'd like to see it on the road.

    I think you just described the Ardun powered T Cotton Werksman built decades ago.

    I want to encourage younger first time builders. Yes the belts should be in there, but please lets encourage this rodder with guidance, he is where we were 30, 40, or in my case 5o+ years ago. I just wish I lived closer to him to tell him how proud I am of his first build.
