Great video, thanks for that, I enjoyed it. In there he talks about the hot rodder nearby working on his car late nights. I never have met a hotrodder nearby working on his car, but when I was quite young a neighbour used to work on his open wheel dirt racer speedcar style racer. Ever since then I have loved the open wheel dirt cars. I used to see them being towed to races, I only got to go to races a few times as a kid, more when I was older. It was great to hang around and watch him working on his car when I could.
I love hot rods but I am a gunna, couldn't build one and probably will never buy one now I have committed so much to my truck. But long live hot rods and those who can build them, especially the old school style.
My old girl has the original look, which I do love. It does have a few mods, but I think it is only lightly toasted. I would like to customise the body of my truck, but don't have the nerve, the skill or the money to do significant custom panel work rebuild. Long live the darkside and those with the courage to travel there.
We've got a dragstrip up my way, Sydney Dragway, and it is VERY popular, and gaining momentum. Been there a couple of times and it was always busy, and lots of fun. They run a gig there called the Nostalgia Drags and it is a very decent concern.
Thanks for sharing. I love the passion!
I love hotrods, but I will never get rid of my truck!
A lot of Ford Trucks of our era were heavily involved in what you see in the video - They were used as push Trucks (Almost all big engine hot rods were push started because of poor starters), Towed trailers and ran parts
Some even raced
1948 Ford F1 Panel
1952 Ford F2x2 (Non-Stock Flat 6)
1997 Ford Explorer Every Thing I've Ever Said Is A Lie
