      True hot rodders never die, we just carry our lead right feet into the afterlife and keep burnin tires off.

      Lots of great comments in this thread, and all true. I agree that televised Barrett Jackson and RM Car Auctions are killing the hobby for the little guys by driving up prices of the cars and the parts that go on them to unrealistic levels. Having a restored hot rod these days is just a status symbol to most of the mega-rich people who bid on and buy them ... they have no true love for the car itself and most can't remember -- or don't want to realize -- the history behind it all (Brice Road, Detroit, Mulholland, etc.) and why we love it so much.

      I bought my 1968 Barracuda in 1991 as a POS basketcase for $250, complete with boxes of spare parts in the trunk. Aside from the paint and body work, I brought it back to life myself. It's now insured for $70,000 and will be treated as a second child for as long as I'm around to put it through its paces.

      I agree!! And speaking of pick-a-part, we are finally getting one in Jackson!! They are still digging the ground right but we are getting one!!!!

      I think if people are still willing to pay dearly at the pump to run the old "inefficient" engines, then hot rodding is still alive, it will eventually die once new pollution laws are developed and gas rises to around $5.00 a gallon. . .

      Simple answer...NOPE !! From March to December I go to a car show or a car show & shine event EVERY weekend. They are monthly events put together by local groups of car, truck and motorcycle enthusiasts. Sprinkled in there are major car shows around the state. And then the BIGGIE. A national event I vacation to somewhere in the country. Last year I went to the Corvette FunFest up in Effingham Illinois. So my answer to the question is NO WAY !!

      There are a lot of great responses to this question. I'd like to take a stab at it.

      Hot Rodding is "INDIVIDUALITY". "SELF EXPRESSION", and an exercise of "FREEDOM"; PLUS, a respect for others. IF all of these die, then so will hot rodding, as well as many other things,
