    I love the one with the z'd frame. I'd put the hemi from the first one in the z'd frame and call it a day.

    I like the one with the dummy beside it best.. Super low and the radiator shell is not above the cowl.. Super cool...

    Vintage '50s hot rod. When I was a kid, I loved watching them at the drags.

    What goes around, comes around. Except for the clothes and hairstyles, those photos could be from today. The hand grenade ad is interesting; try and market something like that today. I am Butch/56sedandelivery.

    All three have a little different look and all are Kool, but my fav. is the show version. You can still buy dummy grenades, although none of them "explode" like the one in the ad!!
     
  12. At the risk of tossing one of those grenades into this thread... they look a hell of a lot like many Rat Rods today... (ducking for cover)

  13. When I was in 2nd grade, I saw two primered coupes like that drag coupe racing down S.E. 142nd street in Portland one day..later found out the drivers were brothers a few streets over.
    Ruined me for life! I pick the drag coupe and yeah, I'd drive it on the street.

    I'll risk a comment or choice, none of the above. I get a deep chop for a racer, even a deep channel, but to me they're all too much. Kool to be sure but I wouldn't have such a thing.
     
  15. Actually, these are some ugly cars. Maybe it's my West Coast prejudice, but they look like rat rods to me.

    That's why I like the hemi coupe best, not because they look like crap rods but because it looks to me that car is a purpose built (work in progress) race car with show, you can see it in the use of chrome steering arm, drag link, valve covers, pullies and headers, six carburetors and white walls all around and it looks like a group effort, maybe a club car.
    It looks fun.

  21. That's just it. This is what the original rat rods were... functional, fun, no frills hot rods that didn't look "pretty" but got the owner out driving and enjoying. Unfortunately, many of the recent examples are more "art car" than hot rod...

    The 32 three window with the exhaust coming out the door and cowl looks like Tony Tierno's "My Sin" from the Philadelphia Modifiers in 1958.
