That's a cool little hot rod. The video is 13 years old, wonder if it's still around?
Great little history class of a very cool hot rod
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.
Let’s see if that works
Yep … you’re embedded version works … I attempted to embed it in post #2 without success … so I just posted the “click HERE” link.
NOTE: The embedded version on the TJJ Blog is now working.
Those guys sure love to HAMB it up for the camera.
Neat little slice of history.
I think you're head might still be spinning from all that travel @J.Ukrop
@Jive-Bomber posted this same video just last August
Dang, good eye. Worth a second look, though!
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.
An excerpt from page 14 of the April 1963 issue of HOT ROD
I'm still searching my magazine archives for the February 1963 issue of CUSTOM RODDER
. . . which included the "COUPE WITH A KICKER" article about Frank Aadahl's 1931 Chevy Coupe.
Frank's Coupe at a car show . . . from page 28 of the September 1963 issue of CUSTOM CRAFT
Some Doo Wop music would have been proper for the time.
Thanks for posting that. Fun to watch. Chevy through and through from body, engine, wheels, and tailights
And it’s still around?! Cool.
