Hot Rods What did your current Hot Rod look like when you started?

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by HOTRODPRIMER, Feb 20, 2015.

  1. I replaced the photobucket images in my post - hopefully now the post has been resurrected others will do the same.

    How about a then and now thread?

    I found these photos of my 1932 sedan from years ago and it really hasn't changed too much,at least body wise. HRP

  4. Danny I finally found a photo of the coupe the first time I bought it. This is all I could find. The photo got cut off somehow. My 32 when I first bought it in 1974.JPG Circa 1973-4

    This is what I started with. For some reason it doesn't look as good in bare metal......

    Dang you...I spent all morning looking at old pictures because of this thread. But I found one I was looking for. Which makes it all worthwhile.

    Here are two more pics, of my first hot rod. BW pic is not long after we got it, and pulled out the 235 to overhaul it. Second pic is a year later. We didn't take enough pictures back then, film was expensive or something?

  28. Jim,you are correct,film was expensive and then we had to have it developed and the photo's didn't always come out,,,not instant gratification like now. HRP
