What is a traditional hot rod? I ask this because some one here on H.A.M.B had asked about “The new mustangs have a torquethrust looking wheels;are they 5x4.5 boltpattern? 17 or 18 inch? Any odd offset or different offset on front and rear? anyone use them?” and some put this has their repay “ yeah man,,they are soOO traditional and such a great idea, and would be so KOOL on every model A ,32 and merc....so glad u came up with that idea!!!,, i am so glad you decided to take the time to post that on the HAMB..... btw ,,in case u havent figured THAT out,, i am being sarchastic…” I feel that a traditional is what you think a it is. In the days when My Granddad ( Ed “ Axle” Stewart ) and my Dad had their speed shop they where using new parts from new cars and that has been going on for years. An old 32 with a new V8 or new or a 56 F100 Ford pickup running a Corvette rear ends. So I ask way would some you be sarcastic when some one asks about new Mustangs wheels? My point is old cars are cool and when some one puts one back on the road they put part of them self in to car, who they are and what they think is cool. I know what I like and what I don’t like but just because I don’t like does not mean I have to be sarcastic so way does some one think it’s ok to be like that? So tell me what is a traditional hot rod to you?
