    I want a 50\'s style Hot Rod....!!

    Something built in the early to mid 50's all done up in late 50's to early 60's style. You know, the satin black paint, maybe some flames, steel wheels w/ dog dish hubcaps, whitewalls, maybe some sidepipes...????
    I want something that is not fancy at all... spartan interior, carbed motor, etc...
    I kinda want a 30's, like a Tbucket... but I need something that will haul me, the wife, the 3 kids, and the PUG!!!
    Has anyone owned something like this, or have any cool pictures of one? I am gonna start watching behind barns, etc... for a decent shell!

    Yeah, but I wanted one of these before that! I watched that because I saw what the topic was!!! I have been eyeing an old Plymouth in a barn up north by my parents house... not sure of the year or if it is a 2dr or 4dr, but I have been trying to find out who ownes it for a couple months.

    That bucket that they built last night on rides was sweet, but not practical for what I need!

    So far , i have owned 2= 1952 both GMC and Chevrolet pick up trucks. I loved em. You can add the mustang 2 suspention, or do the camaro sub-frame like i did, to update the truck with power steering, coils, etc. Those trucks slammed look reallt cool /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif to /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    You can buy this beautiful 1953 Crown Victoria (Ford 50th Anniversary) from me! All original except front seat, rims, and shifter now in the floor. Still has the running Flathead V8. I use to drive it but took the insurance and tags off to put the first K5 on the road. Would look sweet slamed/hydrolics, shaved everything and blown. Come get it./forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    My dad's 1940 Ford coupe, sitting on a 70's model el camino frame with a 350 SBC, disk brakes, air conditioning and a beautiful white leather interior. i do prefer the look of the mercury over the body style of this one though.

    My brother has a 54 Chevrolet that I've been trying to get him to turn into a "Rat Rod" but all he wants to do is spend his money on video games. /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif
