  4. That's a cool little hot rod. The video is 13 years old, wonder if it's still around?

    The Rumblers cc are in Brooklyn if I’m not mistaken? The idea of a hot rod even in existing in NYC is something I marvel at every time I’m there as well.

    Not to high jack but here’s Brian building cars in the city and around 1:51 he pulls the 5 window out and takes a tear around the city.

    Neat video. Even my wife liked it, she was quite interested in the hood sanding before paint.

    When I lived in Brooklyn in the 60s there was a serious street racing scene on Connecting Highway and Cross Bay Boulevard. It might still be going on. But if you lived in Brooklyn or Queens back then you wouldn't dare say you were fron NYC. That was Manhattan only.
    It's all different now. You feel like you need a passport to go to Brooklyn if you're older than 35.

    which included the "COUPE WITH A KICKER" article about Frank Aadahl's 1931 Chevy Coupe.

    Some Doo Wop music would have been proper for the time.
