As far as the two "modern" cars, those are photoshop pictures - not real. Doesn't anyone notice the scale of the car to the girl on the second pic? It's just a little off wouldn't you say? Rolling Eyes Besides, they both suck in concept and design even if they were real.

Benny you shouldn't surgar coat it, tell us what you really think about those old Corvettes. I think just the picture of the first one leds to a more favorable opinion. The photo is well taken or doctored the way it's framed and showing motion. How's that? As for the second one, she's just a good sized girl. They need love too! Isn't the white Vette with the axle one of the Deadman's Curve Gang from out east? Looks like that Vette from the Radiar ads.

I like them all too but in different ways. I'm not much on rat rod that are unsafe and made to look like it's a freak show but I feel very comfy in a beater(Jalopy).

I agree with that! If I had it to do over. I woundn't have painted the 39! Would have just
left it flat black. Cool

There is no right or wrong. Just wondering what you guys like. Any thoughts on these two styles? Forward rake or the ol' tail dragger? I have always been nuts over the skirted tail draggers. Not sure why. One of these days I want to build one.

The third car looks like Kevin Anderson's car from Muncie. The last one I've seen in a lot of event coverage in SoCal. I think he must go all over in that thing.

I like them but not for me. The 30's and 40's are neat but I have no desire. I like the 49 to about 65 vintage. I just can't identify with the older ones. I only knew a few guys with them. When I was in high school the 49 - 57 Fords and the 53 - 57 chevys were popular and availble. They were about 10 to 15 years old then and you could get a really good one for $300 to $500. I guess that's why I tend to lean that direction. I personally don't think there was a car made in 56 that I don't like. Probably my favorite year.

Laughing I don't care for it. I'm just wondering what others feelings are. Seems to happen a lot with older trucks.

Ditching the taillights would have helped. The street rod guys would like it more.$$$

I was going to post a few thoughts, but a couple guys beat me to the punch. I've been on here a few years and I have to say, the more I read posts from FalconEddie1964 and Brownie, the more I like these guys. I may have to get my butt out on the 18th with you guys.

At the risk of really getting slammed, I sorta like it. I think thats kind of the idea that GM was after with the HHR or that little Corvette type truck they made. If the one in the picture had a different rear bumper and was lower so you wouldn't need air sick bags, it might look pretty cool. Not to for cruise ins or stuff like that but for an every day hauler. It looks pretty smooth and slick which is what customs are supposed to do. It's different. I've seen quite a few of those old Chevys done like that, theres a black and bright green one that shows up at some of the bigger events around here thats pretty slick. Never seen anybody do that to an F-100. ............. Ok Benny, hit me where it hurts.
