My passion for hot rods is long and deep, i like everything and i've had all the types,muscle cars,show cars,street machines,classics,and drag cars but i never had a street rod of my own,i was always too busy building or painting them for in 2003 i ordered a 23 t-bucket kit from SPIRITCARS.COM, they sent me my project on two pallets and i tore into it. hope you enjoy the pics. with any luck i should have it running summer 2010 i hope.
