1929 Ford Coupe Hot Rod ~ Running Day 1
So the first day off the trailer we took out the car and it died on us leaving us stranded. Started troubleshooting with the builder and found out it wasn't getting spark. Tracing wires we found that the ballast resistor wire had been pulled out of the spade connector. Simple fix so we're back up and running. More videos to come.
Hot Rod Delivery!
Coupe came today. Took some video taking it off the trailer. Car came from Colorado so it's not tuned properly just yet for my elevation in the midwest. All the gas evaporated out of the carb as well so we had to roll the car off the flatbed. Went for dinner, came back and got her fired up and put to bed for the night. More tomfoolery tomorrow.

Mitch Allread: Don't Call it a Rat Rod... - BIG MUSCLE
It packs a 400 hp diesel out of a Ford F-350, a Dana 80 rear-end, and a look and feel that would make Max Rockatansky feel right at home. This is Mitch Allread's custom fabricated creation and it is, without a doubt, one of the coolest things on the road today. This is a machine that transcends the traditional hot rod formula by breaking down borders and setting its own stage.
Whereas most hot-rods are built by custom shops utilizing parts from mail order catalogs, Mitch took a different approach and fabricated just about everything on his ride by hand. Calling this a rat-rod would be an insult - a work of art however... that'd be just fine.
RAT ROD Built By-Mackey's Hot Rods Inc.
The first low budget hot rod to come out of Mackey's Hot Rods in 2008. Visit Mackey's Hot Rods Facebook for up to date car builds and news.
