Hot rodding Tribute Vid

according to some of these import mags, and a few of the "hot rodding mags" Hot rodding is dead, but this film shows a different light, from the oval tracks of Middletown America, to the salt flats at Bonneville Hot rodding Lives' On

Ya know, I think I watch that vid at least once a week and it still says it all. I don't agree with everything the narrator says, but the last few lines are what hits me. Unless you're in this little club, you never will get it. I think this is the greatest hobby there is. It's not for the people, who when their car or truck acts funny, the first thing they do is grab the yellow pages to find a mechanic. Yet, it's not exclusive. All you have to do to join is grab a wrench, roll yer sleeves up and crawl into it. It's not for those who are afraid to get dirty. It's about building and doing something with your own two hands.

Some people will never get it. They won't understand your excitement when you hear a good running motor. They will call you crazy for driving 300 miles because you HEARD there MIGHT be a part your looking for in some small town. They'll never understand why a person would sit in the sun all day and watch guys and women drive a car in either a circle or just a straight line. They will call you stupid for building something that may only get driven a few thousand miles a year. They'll wonder why you only have 5 pairs of jeans, but you have ten 1/2" crescent wrenches. You're the "car guy" who lives on the corner. They shake their head when you drive by and call the cops if you rev your motor too loud and too early in the day or late at night. But, they call on you when they can't get their SUV started because you're the "car guy". Sometimes they put the word "crazy" in front of your name when referring to you and your friends. They will never get it.

Hot Rodding isn't for everyone, but everyone is welcome. Hot Rodding is the thumbs up you give to yourself when that engine finally turns over. Hot Rodding is figuring out why that carb wouldn't work and then making it work. Hot Rodding is taking something and making it faster than the guy with the degree said it could be. It's hearing an engine run and knowing what it's telling you. It's the smile you get when someone asks you who Wally Parks is.

Hot Rodding is tradition. It's America personified in steel. It evolves and changes like a little kid. It grows old, but it doesn't grow up. It's the coolest thing in the world and it sure as hell ain't dead.

It's hearing an engine run and knowing what it's telling you. "Quote"

Freddie you nailed it!!!!!!!!!! This was the inspiration for me to be a mechanic.

I may have said this in another thread but I will repeat it. Back in high school when me and my buddy were rebuilding a tired 283, we had it all together and it wouldn't start. We called over our shop teacher "Mr. Barrett". He said "turn it over. Stop". He grabbed the distributor, advanced it a hair, said turn it over again, and it fired like it just came off the GM line. I worshiped that guy after that and all the teachers who would come after.

I know what you mean, some people will never get it but who really cares. I'll be twistin wrenches on old cars till I can't do it anymore. They'll find me under the car, expired, Beach Boys playin on the radio and 2 or 3 projects still waiting to happen. Oh well, hopefully the kids will pick up where I left off......... JD
