I do not currently own a hotrod(just sold the 69' nova).Does this mean I am not a hotrodder? I don't think so.Just like EBlack said I think it is an attitude as well as a few more things.I build all my own engines,trannys,diffs,etc.....Gearhead?Definately!
If I could afford to buy a kickass ride again at this time ,I would.
Then comes the tweaking of the engine and the performance mods to make this ride the way you want it.This is what hotrodding is to me.
Building them from the ground up is also very honorable.I have done a few of these projects and have no problem with doing another.What some people forget is that there are alot of people out there that can not do all these things but still live and breathe
hotrods.So I guess to each their own.I don't think there is the ultimate answer,just everyones opinion.This was a great question though!
Drive it like ya stole it!
