Post Hot Rod of the Week suggestions?

I'm looking for suggestions for Hot Rod of the Week.

Hot Rod of the Week is the section of Hotrodders.com where we feature photos and information on one car, every week, for the past 145 weeks.

This week's Hot Rod of the Week is <a href="http://hotrodders.com/vehicles/" target="_blank">here</a>.

If there's a car that you would like to see as Hot Rod of the Week, please suggest it in this thread. I think any of the following would make excellent suggestions:

--members' cars you've seen on the board

--cars you've seen in the <a href="http://hotrodders.com/album" target="_blank">Hotrodders Photo Album</a>

--cars you've seen on other websites

Feel free to post pics, links, or whatever. The only current requirements for Hot Rod of the Week cars are that they be mostly finished, and, of course, that they be hot rods, whatever that means.

OK now I know this isn't actually a request for a certain car, but how about some newer stuff than the previous "Hot Rods of the Week". Now nothing against the cars we've had, I'm personally more a fan of the older iron than the newer gear myself, but there are those on the site who have newer rides (and I'm not talking imports). I mean like 70's, and 80's cars, trucks. I would far rather my '37 Chevy be on the road but till the I gotta put up with newer iron. For example I know there are a couple F-Body guys here, a couple S-10 guys and so on. Just a thought.

Hey, Jon

I'd be happy to see my '54 Chevy pickup featured ... the only reason I haven't headed that way before is that the interior isn't there yet. But in the past month I've installed a Gennie shifter and hand brake, did an EZ-Wire kit, installed an Old Air AC/Heat/Defrost unit, Bed Roll Tail Lights, a new Edelbrock Performer carb, and new headlight bezels and visors.


I have a whole picture-diary posted at my site, too - see link below my sig.

BTW - I owe a LOT to Hotrodders.com!! I'm brandy-new at all this ... this is my first serious attempt at hotrodding - got the truck in January - and I have gotten so much help along every step of the way from so many COOL members here, it's unbelievable. Not only have you guys saved my butt a dozen times, but you've all made it a much more enjoyable experience along the way. It's GREAT having pals to share the passion with and to learn from!

THANKS.

Alan Horvath

I think the hot rod of the week should include the rods that are still in the build up stages. I think we are missing out.

I can remember my ol man rolling down the road for the first time in a 49 Lincoln sitting on a bucket just to be able to drive his hod. Even though it wasn't finished he would still show it every chance he got just to say hey it's getting there and I'm doing it. Because thats what hot rodding is, right?

So I'd like to see some in progress rods as well as some finished ones. Pretty much everyone on this site has a rod they are building or wants a rod to build. So why not show them off some.

I'd love to see horvath's rod on display as rod of the week.

just my $.02

I'm all for sticking Alan Horvath's truck in there! It's a cool ride. How about a 60's era Chevy truck?

Thanks for all the cheers!

I've got the Hotrodding bug this year and I sure am amazed at how exciting this is!

I agree -- building them is what it's all about!!! I'd hate to ever be finished working on my truck! I'd either have to start another project or wind up in the funny farm.

PS - I'm really diggin' the 1-ton Chevy Slider in WA is working on!

my 2 cents for what it worth,good points have been made, have alittle variety,some that are nice,in the process of building,some that just go out and have fun in no matter what condition I do feel it should be members only cars that are shown

I like several of the suggestions above. I think that some of the cars being built are more interesting to see than the finished ones. Also agree that featuring some of he later cars is a good idea.
