With so many cars on show, it’d be easy to miss on what kick started the HotRod culture, some proper old school Rod builds. Unfortunately, with my tight schedule, i couldn’t spend as much time oogling over each car as much as i would have liked and that also sadly means, i did not get to document as many of these wonderfully and often, insanely build rides.
Crazy was the word that kept popping up in my mind with every car i look at. The attention to detail, the quality of the builds and the sheer badassery of every HotRod on the showfloor kept my jaw dragging on the floor for most part of my journey through the event hall.
Check out the street registration plates.
I really love this old pickup. One of my favorites of the show.
Slightly milder build but still so much presence and attitude.
Insane Beetle Rat Rod.
How do you like your Rods?
How it all began…
Proving size doesn’t matter. If your kid has one of these, he will rule the playschool streets!
Signing off for now (until Part 4), here’s another look at the two Ratrods from our opening image.
