    In the good ole days it probably was much safer to ride in the rumble seat than today because traffic was less, speeds were slower, and there weren't so many irresponsible kids and people with cell phones driving around. Everytime my 86-year old dad comes over to my place to visit he rminds me of how when he was a kid about 80 years ago his dad whipped out of the driveway of the house where I am now living in a 24 Model T touring and flung my dad off into the borrow pit because my dad was a young tike hanging onto the rear touring door when its latch decided to let go. I think that's pretty funny, but the old cars weren't too safe then, and they aren't now either unless were have made them so.

    Kid in the first pic DOES look miserable. Like my pops used to say, as I was climbin' out from underneath the '29 Packard, covered in 70-year-old road tar-"Builds character, boy!"
    Got all the character I need now, Pop.
    Just ask MY kids...

    I just wanted to point out a few of the many positive aspects of the picture. Haven is 5 and spends about every single free moment with his dad. Haven goes to junkyards with us, car shows, swaps, races and just about everywhere. Because of Sandman and Kelli's investment, Haven is an absolute joy to be around. I can't argue that rumble seats or even hot rods are a safe place for any of us, but just wanted you to know why Blake loved the picture.

    Yeah its a cool pic - looks like fun. But, I would have to side with the "safety police" with this one. I let my kid take his bumps and bruises and try not to shelter him but I don't endanger him either. I'm sure if you could see half the stuff firefighters or paramedics see on a daily basis you would realize this is probably not a good idea. We all have done worse things growing up and we think because we survived - it's alright. But, lets face it cool or not the kid is not exactly having his best intrests looked after.

    You have no idea.

    I remember riding in the rumble seat of my dads '30 Buick as a leetle wahn, and those are some of the most profound moments that I will remember. Even though he ran the original straight 6 putter in it, that car, that rumble seat, going down the road at a whopping 35 mph is what impacted me the most growing up. Damn I love that car.

    Great pic btw. They just look so much better driving down the road than they do sitting in the fairgrounds don't they?

    I have a 2 year old daughter and when shes old enough shes going with me in my Model A to car shows, swap meet just like Sandmans boy, everytime I see them together thats one happy child, lifes full of risk and dangers and I personally built my car and I'm my lil girls parent, so if i deem my car safe, then I cant control the actions of others. These two have a great relationship which is more than I can say for some kids and there perfectly-safe, SUV driving parents....oh wait you mean they discovered SUVs ARENT SAFE!! nuff said!

    Lurch's beard looks unsafe!

  18. Blake thanks for posting the picture. It was great as always to see you. The event was fantastic and thanks to all who made it happen.
    Haven (Sandboy) Loves all our toys and he's been riding his own motorcycle since the age of three, he has been in the shop with me since the age of 1, we just finished a go cart for him, I have pictures of him helping with the Z'ing of the frame, he goes on all the junkyard runs and swapmeets with the guys, he is my right hand man, friend, pal, and son. At the age of 5 now he knows the do's and don'ts of hot rod edicoutte way more than most adults.
    Back to the event, can we just do it all again next weekend?

    Where even the kids have fun!

    Ooooh... nice try guys, but here's the answers we were looking for...

    1. Looks like rain, but where's LURCH's jacket? Is he trying to catch pneumonia..?

    2. No shroud... spinning blade... one wayward H5N1-infected pigeon later, you got yerself an avian flu pandemic.

    3. Them pointy things... nice job CLEATUS!

    4. Hmmm... is that govt surplus (i.e., lead-based) paint covering them chop scars..?

    5. That screw head on my coupe door looks kinda sharp... nasty forearm scratch just waitin' to happen.

    6. Two words... tetanus and lockjaw.

    7. LURCH is driving! LURCH is driving!

    Hahahaha, this is what I get for not reading the entire thread. Before my first post I read probably the first 2 posts, then posted. I had no idea this thing turned into a safety brigade meeting.

    It was a cool picture to capture the feel of a great weekend. Lighten the hell up folks.

    I had that same face when I rode back there too, wind will do that ya know. Oh, and there's no latch or anything in answer to your question upchuck. Depending on the car, the rumble seat leans back slightly and the weight of the lid holds it open. But trust me, it would take someone coming up and forcing the thing down for it to close. It's not at all like an open deck lid.

    I reiterate, nice picture Blake. It really did capture the feel of the weekend.

    Ha ha! Well, I guess that changes my position on this...go ahead and keep your kids in the back of your hot rods, restraint seats or not. Hell, strap 'em to your beer keg fuel tanks for that matter. You don't wanna question your image of "toughness" now, do you?

    Heres mine.


    Danyelle (Dirty Little SIS) has been riding in hotrods since she was born. She rides in the Chopped 32 Sedan everywhere, She has logged over 15,000 miles in the last year and a half, Including trips to California, Kentucky, Oklahoma, Missouri, etc. If it aint safe for your kids then it aint safe for you. If you feel your car is not safe enough for your kids or your family then you need to go back and make it safe. You will never get them safe enough for todays standards. My pops added a roll bar just in case and seatbelts for the car seat. This summer my daughter will go lots of places with me in the roadster. Relax poeple it is the other idiots you got to worry about not the cars we build.

    Just so everyone doesn't think I'm knocking anyone's cars, I'm not. Dirty's comment is my exact point. You have no control over other's actions on the road, and I've been in/seen too many fucked up accidents caused by "idiots" in my lifetime. My son goes everywhere in my Bel Air and '53 pickup, but I obviously adjust my driving habits accordingly. Call me a sissy all you want...I'll let my kid kick you in the nuts.

    I can't remember a modern hot rod accident where it was the hot rod's fault. It seems like it's almost always the rubber-necker's that smash our shit.

    Rob. I see yer kid does yer dirty work for ya. Very well done, sinsa! hehe! I here ya on the driving part with kids on board. I too one day will have a little one and I am not going to risk trying to prove my machoism to a bunch of rice burners or or whomever wants to prove that they can risk the chance of them and others or maybe even a fatality, god forbid! I look at it as how I look getting to point b and c then how fast I can get there. I guess it comes with age that now I am in the 40 bracket.

    You nailed it. "Adjusting driving habits." I remember going to RedBluff, CA to go jeeping with my dad as a kid and hanging on the roll gage(1975), but now I imagine he would make me sit down and not figit around.

    Of all places i didn't figure the safety police would monitor the HAMB. Afterall, fathers are for fun and mothers are for safety! Without my hot rod dad i would not ride in half the cars i ride in today!
