I love it - I got chills
My time spent with cars. Those that didn't understand. The smell of fuel and the joy of starting the motor at midnight under the neighbors window out in the back yard - open headers - ready to go to the muffler shop in the morning.

Great video!

Amen to that!! Hot Rodding is far from dead and I have a 16yr old that can prove it. Proudly wears his "I'd rather push my Hot Rod than drive a tuner" pin, drives a 68 Javelin and is currently building a '40 Chevy Coupe to hopefully "whip the 'Ol man". Long live the shadetree mechanic,burning the late night oil in garages across the continent and the production of "homebuilt Hot Rods" that define our existance!!

Great video; and hot rodding is definately not dead! I have a pretty new car by comparison to real cars (ones made in the golden years before emissions), but the concept remains. Some of today's "tuners" build some quick machines and some of us labor on "global platform" cars, but we all aspire to become one of the greats. Given some time and money with a healthy dose of good luck, most of us would prefer something classic and a chance to follow in the footsteps of the Original Dad's of Hot Rodding!

Long gone are engines a weekend mechanic can work on, unless you own one with a carberator. Everything is now connected to a computer, governed by your radio. You can buy extra power in a chip or put LED lights under your car, but you can't make it better by putting a blower on it, or a bigger carb or bigger manifold. At least not by the weekend mechanic. Heck you can't even tune it yourself. Only those purist who have a car that you can tell what it is, not just duplicate bodylines of a Japanese car. At least that's my take on today's automobiles. We have two drags a year specifically for pre-68 and one for post -67. The drive-in is long gone too, but they still cruise mainstreet.

The commentary through-out the video was right on.Working on your hot rod until 2am trying to build your personal master-piece in any spare time that you ever have (especially these days, work, work work!) But the kids today do have alot of skills in the automotive field, just most of it is on foriegn cars. It's a different kind of hot rodding but those 4 and 6 cylinders are flying! All in all, Hot rodding lives and it's stronger than ever. American Muscle forever!!!

Excellent vid..........as long as there are normal people with cars, and clubs to support them, hotrodding will never die..............unfortunately, it does tend to take a little longer to find what you're looking for. Good vid anyway.

well all that was true ....but do the kids of today have the
time and Patience to get a job to the finish ? All I see today are kids that want an Easter
egg painted car and some thing that they don't have to work on or tinker with at all!

And no one wants to teach a kid or adult some thing about paint or body work or
just what go's into a motor the kids these
days

I my self included . don't have that much time to just throw out a window !

But a good vid
