    amen. i'm begining the build on my 1935 pickup, and everyone slanders the poor things because you have idiots rolling an 8 inch chop and a 6 inch section, strapping the cheapest looking engine with the cheesiest blower scoop, and running wide radials to top it off. In fact, there's a company that sells them like that, complete with an unfendered front coil over setup....

    But, to the rescue are builders who are finishing these trucks off very nicely,
    and i know the fights will never stop, but scour ebay for a bit and i'm SURE you'll find some coupes and sedans you'd grit your teeth over. with the forthcoming proof about true nostalgia post 34 trucks coming out, they shouldn't be such a huge deal but they are due to the newfound popularity (hatred for some..)

    My opinion is build it to match the era. I think some really cool trucks may be popping out in the future.

    Man, I don't know if you've seen that RPU in person or not, but I'd just call it a hot rod. It's very low, but the proportions are killer.

    My 38 ford project, has cheater slicks on now, engine next week. Thinking about widening the bed about 6" to flow with the cab better. May or may not use some type of modified fenders. Will be painting it, that's just primer. Happy fourth all!

    [QUOTE
    This looks wild. And the detail on the build and the over all workman ship on this is amazing. Fat fendered cars dont have to wear fenders all the time to look good. If you dont like this you have no eye for detail and craftsman ship.[/QUOTE]
    Now just because the craftsmenship is there, and there was great attention to detail, doesn't always mean it is in good taste. personaly I think your example, looks like nothing more than a stretched "so cal Style" VW bug. That is my opinion. Just because It is metal finshed flawlessly and been gone through with a fine tooth comb, doesn't mean it can't out of proportion, and overall designed poorly.
     
  10. Damn! And all this time I thought I DID have an eye for detail and craftsmanship. Thank you for disabusing me of that silly notion. 'Cause the two cars you posted, Hot Rod Packard, look like a hicky on a hemoroid to me.

    But I do like that people are starting to put paint on rat rods.

    I have to agree with Fuzzy on the blue job, A+ for craft, F for design. I remember seeing the Posie Extremeliner some time ago. Thought the same way about it. There was just no reason for a car that ugly to be made so well, if at all. Gary

    I kinda hate to post here, because I have a commitment to Plowboy and Dodgerodder to get my shit done...

    But, in my defense...I have been making progress, and I can prove it by recent articles in Rod & Kulture magazine. NOT dropping names, just my pathetic attempt to establish SOME sort of bona fides.

    Anyway...my truck

    Whitepony, if you want pictures of this type of truck I have posted about 300 to my gallery at hotrodders.com. The pictures came from all kinds of sites, here and others. These are all closed cab fenderless trucks. My own truck is in yellow primer now and going back together.

    I dont mind an early truck QUITE as bad.... but when I see a fat fendered truck done up like this, All I can think is how it would be 20 times better if it were fendered.

    That fenderless "Rat Rawld" S10 a few pages back takes the cake.
    hahaha

    Of course, my .02c

    here are a couple pics of mine .finished it up last summer for the syracuse nationals. my first complete build ...had a lot of help from some friends and did a lot myself. learned alot of what to do and what not to do, what i like and what i don't like, but first and foremost this thing is a fucking blast ..it's fast ,built as well as any fucking car i have ever seen anywhere else ( as far as structural integrity) and it's mine to do with whatever i want . only thing i am not overly happy with is the windshield rake and the cab chop was already started when i picked up the cab so i can't take full credit for it. i will drive this thing anywhere , anytime , any speed. over 5000 miles so far . some hate it some love it but either way this fucker demands attention.
