  1. Classic 1973 Duster Barn Find

    Hotrodders' Lounge
    Classic 1973 Duster. Slant 6 engine, ran when parked. Stored in a shed since 1980 making this one a real barn find. A bargain for some lucky Mopar fan out there to restore and cherish. I know what the NADA guide says these are worth and I saw one go for 25,000 on Ebay last month so no low...
  2. Epic Chase Scenes

    Hotrodders' Lounge
    Fast & Furious got nothing on this! Judging by the spontaneously combusting cars, I'm guessing they were using Ford Pintos with redone body work.
  3. Picture game thread!!

Your car on a bridge), then whoever posts the first picture of their car doing the challenge gets to pick the next challenge. Rules: 1. No illegal...
  4. Come On Man!

    Hotrodders' Lounge
    I am thinking there needs to be a "come on man" thread dedicated to showcase the oddest most ridiculous rides (OK so beauty is in the eye of the beholder),,,, This baby cost more than 300K to build and is a vette with possibly the ugliest body style attached,,,come on man!
