    image.png Guessing I have to vote for this roadster as the coolest non-homoginized HOT ROD at TROG 2018. It's style doesn't make the cut.....to be copied in builds nowadays, but it sure has the "back in the day" vibe!

    It looks like it came out of the early "sports car" road racing era. Not what I'd build but it definitely makes a statement. Function over form? At least over uniform. :)

  5. That's a very East Coast looking car with the deep channel & spring /radiator in front. Really the only thing that makes it sit in the "sports car" category is the welded doors with the dip cut in them and the rounded glass. Otherwise, this is a deep channeled, low slung early hot rod.

    As you get older the dip gets deeper...:D...glad its still around.

    This is a perfect example of making connections to where ideas to incorporate into builds evolved from as in no set rules back in the day and do as you desire based on what floats your boat. The flipside to that is the same conformist pressures and opinions existed then as they do today. Thats why these surviving relics are so valuable to painting the picture.

    Mike Bowling said it was a former Pinstripers Hotrod and he no doubt spent a great deal of time striping many a period Hotrod and Custom then jumping into the Hotrod after a hard days work.

    I think this is pretty traditional, 29 on 32. Split windshield is different.

    ZZ add your link to your thread on this Hotrod to your post above so those who are interested can find it and yes that has some pretty cool period features.

    Please tell me about the rims and orange paint...when did your father stop adding features...the reason I ask is these look newer than 65...

    I am curious as it's never safe to assume.​

    That is the Engineer Miller in the Racer...quite a genious...
    Another Miller no relation to AK I suppose but yes that link goes to the story about it. That was big coin back in the day and pretty innovative stuff not your average racer. They did many wild thing back in the day to those racers. Much of it crossed into the Hotrod, Land Speed racing and other but don't think 4WD did and it look kike a pretty clean machine.

    Some very nice cars there and some really cool vintage speed equipment. It's got to be harder to build a hot rod there but they diid very well. The photographer did them proud too! Thanks for posting these.

    While not polished Hotrods these guys influenced
    the street and vice versa...these had very low profiles with
    channelling and even the look of sectioning thrown into the mix.

    Crazy pipes, carb and engine mods...going fast was
    how you got there...

    The next time you see some crazy looking Hotrod consider
    that its influence may have been a vision at the race track...
