Some of my friends and I have "hotrodded" '94, '95 and '96 Impala SS's and race them....mostly against ourselves, but as to whether or not we're really accepted by the other hot rodders is another question. I don't know if we're hot rodders or just a novelty...but it sure is fun. Here's a link with some of the times and mods Dynamic Top ETs Some of them are pretty quick for 4,000 lb grocery getters.

Come on, that ain't no hot rod!

I don't know Brian. I thought it was a pretty homely little car in stock form, and the 10hp taxable (23hp actual) would leave a lot to be desired!

Exactly. I saw this today at a car show in Yuma Colorado. The guy shaved the rear door handles, but kept the front. Looks like a Hot Rod to me.

I thought about this thread as I was walking around the Goodguys show today in Pleasanton as there were MANY four door HOTRODS there.

I had a '59 Rambler wagon with flathead 6 cyl. once, so I really do know how it feels! Mine cost me $10 to buy back in 1970, and ran for exactly 2 weeks before blowing up. Good news was I got $25 junk price for it!
