Growing up in southeastern Pennsylvania there was an oft repeated saying " If it ain't Dutch it ain't much". I think that hot rodders must have a similar expression along the lines of "If it ain't Street it ain't neat" because this past Saturday the annual street rod gathering came to my home town and I think that just about every street rod for miles around descended on the local strip mall parking lot where the event is usually held. This same venue hosts a Hot Rod "hang out" on most rain-free Monday evenings during the summer months but the Monday night hang-outs draw a small, local group of mostly, but not exclusively American cars--I've even taken Xenopus over to a Monday night gathering and didn't get tarred, feathered and run out of town, so the Hot Rodders are an accommodating crowd. As is my usual trend, I took too many pix for one post so check back in a few days if you're inclined to look at stuff like this.
|This '59 Buick Electra was nicely turned out. Note the art work on the inside of the hood.|
|Next up was this '36 Ford pick-up.|
|This was one of only a handful of rods to retain a flat head v8.|
This blog spot has become wonky for some reason so I'll stop here and continue later.
