Custom Car Culture: Part I of Hot Rod Super Nationals / Classic Cars Auto Show '10 Weekend


This weekend the Hot Rod Super Nationals / Classic Cars Auto Show '10 came to town. Just think of them as being big hot wheels for big boys (and big girls).

Ed "Big Daddy" Roth , Von Dutch and George Barris ... these names make me think of Rat Fink, Flying Eyeballs and old skool Hot Rods. Names which some current unnamed car genius (like the one who's got his own prime-time tv show, married a celeb actress, then show real genius by cheating on her at the drop of a hat) will most likely never be associated with in a flattering manner (kinda like I just did here) :D

Ha! Rant done now... Bring on the fun stuff!

It's time to choose which car has what it takes to be the one atomic pick I'd most want to get behind the wheel and drive home in (next to the lithographed tin dream that Doc Atomic shared yesterday!). Ahhhh, so much chrome and so little time to choose...


'59 Chevy Impala
'59 Chevy Impala as a Lowrider... Boy what crazy things they could do with metal back then.

What a buggy!


Smokin' Joe's '27 Ford Model 'T'
She's unpolished, lean, mean and looking for trouble. Smokin' Joe's '27 Ford Model 'T' takes the vote for my fave tricked-out souped-up customized hotrod job of the day.

100% classic hot rodness

Hot Car, Over-Hot Kid
One Hot car, One Over-heated kid

This baby gets my vote for the most fun ride to scare your 1-time date with.

Stay tuned, Part II of quite possibly the longest-titled post ever will be pulling up into your driveway real soon!

My pick is the Impala, just look at those curves! I just can't get into the 30s and earlier hot rods... I like clean and smooth lines.

That Impala is awesome! The classics from the 50's are going to be featured in Part II, so be sure to check back again.

I'm sorry Atomic Ranch, my computer is experiencing technical difficulties, and I can't understand any of you're comments ;D

I love the Date Frightener, I'd be the one date who'd come back for more! I also like the "flames" on the one with the big roll bar, they look like the veins in a bloodshot eyeball!

Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme of this site. It's simple, yet effective.
