    Ok chaps, I know most of you in here aren't into hotrods although I fly the flag every now and then. This is a heavily worked '37 Ford sedan.

    Do you like it or not and why! Feel free to tear it to pieces if you feel like it!

    I would like to tear the rear tyres to pieces doing the quarter in it. :cool:
    I love Rods. Not my choice of green but it will sound and go like billy o.
    Rods to me are more than cars they are almost alive.

    I love it, but then I like most hotrods as well.

    For a hot rod it's ace. It's barmy and over the top, which is exactly what a hot rod should be like. Saying that though it does have an element of class to it, i love the paint job.

    Conversely, I'd say that it looks like someone's just thrown their chequebook at it...which is exactly what a hot rod should never be.

    Looks great, hotrods are probably the only cars that can get away with stuff like airbrushed flames and stuff.

    What's the problem with paying a professional to build something? If you don't the the skills yourself and you want a hotrod then I can't see any problem.

    I think I would like it more when it heads for a speedbump.

    Hmm, It just doesn't look like a hotrod.
    Looks more like a 1/4 mile track car with a shell stuck on it.
