    Thanks for the info. Do you know when the concept of hot rod began? Is this an early hot rod?
  3. lonewolf, 4 years ago
    i would say hot rodding started about when the model a was born, i would say your pic is a early hotrod, reason is because it has a v8 in it. model a only had 4 clylinders.

    Hey JunkItToMe, You are right, those were the days. We lived in a celler converted into an apartment, $35.00 month. Across the street was a small store where we could buy jaw breakers and bubble gum for 1 cent. Society has tryed to make a perfect world with all the rules and created a nightmare..The road to hell is paved with good intensions. My brother and I would take the streetcar up east 14th street to Emeryville to watch the Oakland Oaks play ball. Casey Stengel was the manager, Les Scarcell played first base etc. etc. etc. My family lived there from 1943 to 1946. Times were tuff, because of the war. Looking back, I have many fond memories in spite of. Thank you for the comment.
