Hot Rod Todd's 1929 hot rod build slideshow
Here's a few shots of the building of my model A hot rod. I was too busy building to take a lot of photos. But, there is enough to see what I started with. You'll see both builds. It go from a 100HP motor, banjo rear and buggy spring to a 300 HP with up posi rear axel 1/4 spring suspension and a 5 speed trans.
It was a lot of work, but it was worth it!
The Rolling Bones Hot Rod Shop - The Poteet 1934 Coupe
(note: this is an art film inspired by The Rolling Bones Hot Rod Shop. It is a non-commercial piece.)
Defining the term "Hot Rod" is about as elusive as trying to find a deuce roadster that's been stored in some old farmer's barn since April 1st, 1932. It can and does mean many things to many people.
For The Rollng Bones Hot Rod Shop, it's about using many of the same parts and building hot rods the way they were when they were simply Hot Rods. While those men had no interest in the history they were creating, The Rolling Bones do. They were simply trying to go fast with what was available.
The Rolling Bones are simply trying to capture the look, the feel, and the soul of a late forties - early fifties Hot Rod with a story to tell.
There are lots of people in this world who claim to be artists but there are only a certain few who can put that very elusive magic in their work.
Great Hot Rods are also works of art and The Rolling Bones will argue that point with you until the beer runs out. Like a romantic painting, when you look at it, a great Hot Rod will tell you just enough of its story to grab your emotions and let your imagination take you as fast and far as you want to go.
That's what they build, stories, in The Rolling Bones Hot Rod Shop style, one story at a time.
