    Hey HAMBers,

    I just wanted to say thank you for the guys who gave me infos about the Ford 390/428 crankshafts. I stayed with the stock 390 crank. Engine was rebuilt and it runs very healthy now!

    Here are some pics of the weekend's cruise hope you enjoy it!

    Hey, look! It's two words HAMBers hate! "Euro" and "Rat" :D

    Seriously though, nice job on the car. It's looking pretty good. :cool:

    I live near the capital town called Budapest.

    This is me in the land where hot rodding is illegal :) with the next project in progress.

    We renamed that town "Bootyfest". The women over there are incredible. We were in Tazar during the Bosnia war...not a bad country to be in during war:)

    What kind of car is it? It can't be a RAT because if you think that is what the HAMB is all about you need an orientation course in Hot Rod 101.:(

    Great shirt. One of my favorite bands! So sad that Chuck had to go so early.

    fab32, please do a re-read he didn't say rats were HAMB friendly, he said he was working on a HAMB friendly ride. This statement alone says that he knows whats what.

    Euro rat, i like your ride, keep up the resistance!

    Illegal, because there's no law here to drive an open wheel car without hood, etc...
    I run it with a probe license plate. This is for cars you want to test drive, it would be OK but it's a bit pricey. I hope the oldtimer allience will figure out some law for the hot rods to make them completely street legal.

    Hot rods from the '30s are here 2-3 cars, customs are a few.

    I've learned a lot of info from the HAMB and from the internet.

    It was the beginning... in the back yard of my grandmother house :)
    A lot of work in the little hovel.. in minus 10 celsius in the winter.
    That's why the print on the car's door. CoolCat's greasy hovel. It was painted for me by one of my friend. He got a '81 Cutlass for daily drive and he's a tattoo artist and trade with Lucky 13.

    The avarage payment here is around a brand new Holley carb's price.
    Some things are different here.

    A rusted out body and chassis, and a bad front suspension.. that was my admission into hot rod culture! :)

    Important question!! :)
    What do you think, what kind of car is my hot rod?
     
  28. Now thats a nice little project. BMW DIXI or Opel or Rosengart.
