CHUCKLES GARAGE 1936 Dodge Hot Rod Truck Vid with music
This is the 1936 Dodge Brothers Modified truck from Chuckles Garage. It's
got a 514ci BBF and was a kick to drive. The truck has since been sold to
Gregor from Speedkills Auto in Germany, who drives it almost every day and
has taken it to the Bottrop show, and also Headbanging. Its been in quite a
few calendars and various ads in Europe, and while I owned it, it was in
CKD and had a 7 page feature in Smokin shutdown. This was my favorite build
to date. Footage by Nic Alberico and Greg Grundstrom.
1937 GMC RAT ROD BUILDUP
How to build your rod from scratch. Follow along as Scott Graves designs,
fabricates, and assembles another fun hot rod out of a 1937 GMC pickup.
Power comes from a 1962 235 inline 6, mates to a S10 T5, and sends it to a
pair of 7.50-17 BF Goodrich tires thru the 3.08 geared rearend. Everything
was fabricated in the his shop area you see with just a few basic tools.

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.
Rat Rod Central
This year's World of Wheels at McCormick Place in late January had a great
rat rod display, but the video had to wait until I found the right music.
And it doesn't get much better than Mickey Gilley "Drive-In Movie" and
Eddie Cochran "Somethin' Else".
And to the guy behind me talking to his friend while I was shooting: They
DIDN'T forget to paint them! And that's the main attitude that people who
own or like rat rods have to put up with.
Custum built car, you really don't paint rat rods
