Hot Rods What hot rod's look good without a front bumper

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by HOTRODPRIMER, May 25, 2019.

  1. I have always thought a '55 Chevy looks so cool when the front bumper has been removed. HRP

  2. The '52-54 Fords look good also.

    I know, no pics never happened - but, in High school had a '55 Chevy Hot Rod that I took the front bumper & splash pan off & coils packed full of spacers for the race car look - but, it was totaled in wreck when hit by drunk driver - transferred drive train to a replacement '57 Chevy - parents said to leave bumper on, OK ? - one day parents head out for the day - I hit the garage & just get bumper unbolted and parents come driving back - they forgot something - Yikes!
     
  11. Model A's always look great without a bumper.

    and the Deuce shells don't distract ether. HRP

    Guys, guys, guys! I don'r consider tri-five Chevy's or any fifties cars to be "Hot Rods". To my mind, a "Hot Rod" as a stripped down modified automobile from the twenties or (mainly) the thirties. That being said, NONE OF THEM!.

    Not a fan of the no bumper look. My cars always have all the chrome and stainless they left the factory with. No bumper to me looks unfinished. My 64 Biscayne is that way. IMG_0812.JPG
