    Just wondering if there are any other folks on here who are into hot rods or rat rods.

    Last time I built a rod was before the digital picture days....
    Only digital pic I have is one I scanned a few years later and then digitally painted as a Christmas card.

    1949 Jaguar MKV, Buick powered, auto trans,
    She was stolen in San Diego in 1989.:mad:

    Got it back missing a lot of parts. Insurance paid for them and gave me the remains back (which I sold).
    Made a bit of profit. Still have the chrome "leaper" radiator cap ornament.:cool:

    Looks like that was a nice Jag.
    Yes, I think an Atom would count.

    71 Chevy stepside. Wish I had more time and money for her. Too many expensive hobbies.

    My current toys range from '35-'82. All but 2 are older than me.

    Nice rides. I have a 1971 Ford F 100 that my Dad bought brand new in 71. That pickup survived me in my teen years driving it like a bat out of hell. Dad quit driving and gave it to me, I used it on the farm for a while then we set it up for our boys to drive. 351 Windsor, C6. Boys drive it for a few years and got tired of paying the gas bill. It has been sitting for a few years, worked on it a bit this summer. I will have that truck running again this summer. It will have a rat rod look for a while, I do not intend on breaking the bank for a truck that will burn rubber and haul wood.

    I also have a 72 Mustang that needs some work, will sell for the right price. Also have a weekly driver, 94 Mustang GT 5.0. This is a fun car to drive. Son has a 1972 Ford F 250 HiBoy with a 428 Cobra Jet in it. That is a bit of fun as well.

    Nice. My '40 Chrysler isn't my first hot rod. I built a few Chevy LUVs with SBCs, one was a hard top convertible. The last one was interesting to say the least. I also had a '57 Chevy with a 383 stroker (did a TH350 to T5 swap in my barracks parking lot back at Ft. Bragg) and a '40 Chevy 2door sedan.

    Friend of mine has a Chev Luv, 350 probably running 450 - 500 hp out of it. Squirrely damn thing, he raced it at the truck drags in Medford a few years ago, usually at Woodburn every year.

    Tubbed and all...pretty fast truck. He has been known to drive it down the road sometimes.

    Sold the last one I built while I was in Iraq. My dad let the guy take it for a test drive. Apparently he didnt believe it when I said it would bite him in the *** if he punched it. Turned a 180 going out of my driveway.

    I am a car guy! Unfortunately I do not own a classic right but I want to get another 67-72 ford truck to play with. Here are some pictures of the classics I have owned but no longer have them.

    First pics are a 1968 Ford F250 Custom Cab Camper Special, next is a 1974 Chevy K20, next is a 1969 Oldsmobile 98, and last is a 2000 Mustang GT not a classic but was a very fun car!

    Nice link notazombie. I guess i need to join that forum to see some pics. That Datsun got my attention.
    I was wishing for a heated shop when I was building my car. This is where I did my build. Though working under it was fairly easy.

    I've been a gearhead all my life. I've been through a bunch of muscle cars over the years, plus a couple Jeeps and some nice pickups. Here's the current stable...in front is our 33 Ford 5 window and in the back is our 38 Chevy gasser. IMAG0008 (800x479).jpg
