It's funny (odd funny, not haha) that this blog post is the catalyst for more "horse shit" and what's sure to be more (and continual) "horse shit" commentary in other posts. To me, it's poor modeling by @Ryan. This builder, he built what he wanted. If his goal was to be the lowest, it would've been considered contrarian and likely effected public sentiment, for sure, because people have a hard time with change. People have a hard time with different. That's NO DIFFERENT than today. Except most people that whine and gripe haven't done anything to earn a pedestal high enough to preach from. This place is for hot rods... it's not the "goofy shit" that makes this car relevant (or worthy of discussion) it's the proportions, the time period, the attention it garnered (as a hot rod) that brought people in to photograph and want to share it. I respect the young builder. He didn't build it for you or this blog. And, he liked the car and his work enough to keep it as long as he has, that says something. As well, he wasn't chasing after some ghost or history trying to recreate something. He was there, he did it. The "goofy shit" is on us. We're the goofs trying to make our mark on the last truly American art form, traditional hot rods and customs.
