These discussions can be online forms of good ol bench racing. Almost worth sitting on a milk crate to participate just for the ambiance, no? Now to clarify, that thought is predicated on not taking these topics too seriously. The truth is that aside from the serious financial input or investment value on some of this stuff, none of it is serious or "official". It's just fun and games, discussion about the perimeter of hot rodding and kustoms. At the end of the day you can hope to derive a nice memory, a good joke, and perhaps even a wee bit more appreciation for the looks of the venerable "shoebox". 49-51 Ford, tri-5 Chevy, even the Nova (although regionally we call them box Novas vs shoebox Novas) could all be looked at from a different and positive angle by those who've not been around long enough to know. When passing the torch, try not to hand out the end that's on fire.
