    It's a '59 Studebaker Lark. The red '32 has a twin turbo 270 GMC in this picture, Junkyard Corvair Turbos. At different times I had a 354, 392 and a 302 twelve port Howard head GMC in it. Paid $75 for the body and frame.

    Well I'm no engine expert. All I see is a shipload of OHV natural aspiration, the beautiful beating heart of a hotrod. :cool:

    One thing that needs to be clear. Younger readers may see Dean Lowe's pickup and Ivo's T, may think these were nice cars to sit next to at the fairgrounds. Or cruise to Saturday breakfast. No! These were very fast, for the time, race cars that were also driven around. Different time.

    A father/son project, there cannot possibly be any objections!
    And of course, FEDs are hotrods, too. Love it.

    I get it, just like trying to name the top 5 best guitar players, or pro golfers, or movie directors. The list has to be longer, but in the interest of a HAMB thread, we're just asking for 5. But I completely understand how you feel, it is impossible really to narrow it down to five. Maybe the thread title should be "What are 5 of your favorite hotrods of all time?" In fact, you talked me into it. This original title "What are your top-5 favorite hotrods of all time?" has a finality to it, like closing a door on the subject. So, thanks for the suggestion, I'll edit the thread title, then maybe more folks such as yourself will play. Because it is good to see what floats everyone's boat.

    the FED is Swamp Rat 1
    I just noticed something, all of my choices are fenderless and the majority of the ones picked so far are as well (not counting the post 34 ones)
    Not trying to start a debate, just an observation

    There are so many classic track-nosed gorgeous hotrods, this is certainly one of them. Clem, Kraft, Osgood, Waite, Mack, Higdon, King, Niekamp, Kuykendall, So-Cal, Spaulding, Dye, etc. You could just about choose one blindfolded and be happy.

    And this is probably what @GeeRam was trying to say . . . you'll need a gasser, a FED, a roadster (or 2), a track-nosed A, B, and T, a streamliner, a belly tank, a hi-boy, an RPU, a channeled hotrod (or 2), a bitchin' dragster hardtop, and several others to do the subject justice. But hey! This is really what I wanted to learn . . . how broad of a stroke does this brush (HAMBers) paint? And most of us can learn quite a bit yet, I know I can.

    In a not rated order my list would look something like this.
    This was THE hotrod that define what a hotrod is for me for many years.
    [​IMG]

    The most beutyful coupe ever built.

    [​IMG]

    One of the best looking T coupes and main inspiration for my build.

    [​IMG]

    This pickup is just stunning.

    More custom than a hotrod maybe but the 36 Westergard built is one of my favorites anyway.

  27. My 5 favorite Hot Rods in no particular order are:
    Anything by
    Tommy Ivo
    Ed Big Daddy Roth
    Gene Winfield
    I lie my favorite is Tommy Ivo's quad engine dragster. I know it's not a street car but it sure is a Hot Rod.

    You know I never have been able to learn anything about the motor in this iconic '36 Ford, only have seen one snapshot of the "reworked" Flathead from 1952. Much as I would like to think that this baby could scream, it is so iconic in the Custom world that there is no way we can call it a hotrod. We would get run out of town. :)
    But otherwise, I like your list.

    Those of us who grew up in the 50s and 60s all fell in love with the hot-rodded Willys. For me it was the later body style, but so glad to see someone throw a '33 Willys in there (Bob Rothenberg). The S-W-C '41 has already been thrown in.
