Before & After 34 Ford PU

Here are Before and After photos of my 1934 Ford pickup after 6 months work.

I started with this ho-hum restored '34 in picture #1. Ditched the old original fenders, frame, engine etc. at the dump. I used paint remover on the red paint to create the cool pattern in photo #2. I'm diggin' the results so far. Whadda ya think?

Restored cars are boring, but rat rods are da bomb!

Yeah...cool

Interesting how you got every square inch of that red paint off without getting the primer and blue off.

Seems like a waste, you could have started w/any old beater to end up w/what's seen on the right. But it's your truck, your money and your call.

What a cold dash of water in the face!!!. First glance, I thought "What a great job, starting with the pile of junk on the right, ending up with the nice truck on the left". To each his own.

Yup! Looks to me like the BS artist ripped a pic from another site and claimed it as his own. Then to further either insult our intelligence or educate us on his skills, he posts a second pic stating this is what he built from the first pic. Yeah right.

I've read his previous posts. When he grows up and develops his skills, I'll bet he builds a blown Hemi powered Metropolitan to cruise down the two lane blacktop.

No way that's the same truck, brake MC, steering, and a lot more, plus, he claims to be from Grants Pass, Oregon, his ISP is Denver, Colorado....another troll.

Worse yet, that picture is from a copyrighted page, by Bob Shetrone on his site...

Being the finished one is a 1933 and the channeled one is a 34, I don't think they are the same truck.

Starting to look like HAMB (first post) called it right on this one, even if it might have been for the wrong reason.

And to think we all welcomed and supported him and his ride.

Ha ha, very good! One guy gets the joke. Everyone else is either gullible or takes themselves far too seriously!

Nonetheless, this illustrates a trend I've observed: irreplaceable restored cars being purchased for the sole purpose of hacking them into hot rods. With reproduction steel Deuce bodies going for $25,000, who can blame them?

It just makes the few remaining originals that much more valuable...
