Random Hot rod

Home  \  Classic Cars  \  Random Hot rod

Ive noticed that alot of hot rods are very typical car types. Camaro Mustang Charger. very popular car types, all very cool thats why there still around.

However tonight I saw a guy with a 72 Hot rodded LTD with a dodge dart(undure of the year)

It was realy cool to see something get hot rodded other than your typical choices.

So I was wondering what are some other cool lesser known cars that would make very unique cars.
Thanks

Well in that case you could probably say Satellites and GTXs too :smoke:

I know it may be weird to say but i like some of the older hearses. if i could buy one i would.

posted by  sandlercd_22

how about an early 80's fairlane. or a late 70's caprice

You're not alone. I used to want a '62 Caddy hearse to hot rod, and had a model of a '65 Caddy lowrider hearse...

There was a hearse for sale like 20 min away from me on ebay and it went for 835$ and it ran and had up to date tags. But the thought of having a hearse in the yard creeped my mom out and she said she wouldnt help me pay for it :ohcrap: .

Too bad. My folks thought it was a cool idea.

Show her the one above, and this one...

Yeh heres the accual auction,http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=80165 73415&rd=1&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWA%3AIT&rd=1. i wanted it so bad and the fact that it was so close just made me antzy to buy it. my mom told me that if i could pay for it and insure it myself i could have it but sense im only 17 and work at mcdonalds its kinda hard. and plus i got 2 trucks and my own car to work on right now.

posted by  sandlercd_22

Same here, I couldn't have a hearse in front of my house...unless it was modified, like the pics from ChrisV :hi:...but a stock hearse would just scare the hell out of me at night :ohcrap:

posted by  chris_knows

I wanted to put a couple couches and LED lights and put a coffin in the back full of speakers. Unoriginal, but cool.

posted by  sandlercd_22

That would be sweet, especially with the ladies :hi: :wink2:

posted by  chris_knows

Wow, most of my friends thought I was weird when I told them I wanted an old hearse (65' or older). They just had that cool look that was better then a Station wagon. I'd love to buy one someday (and my parents wouldn't care either.... I don't think).

posted by  car_crazy89

Of course they are. :wink2:

posted by  67Coronet383

Yeh they look cool.

posted by  sandlercd_22

Hearses are wicked looking when done right. Satelites & GTXs are awesome too, but not THAT uncommon...just finished welding in new sheet metal in the trunk of my buddy's '67 Satelite, needed to get rid of spare tire well and mount fuel cell in trunk. It's sick, dyno'ed 573hp on 115octane...will run on 94 plus octane booster and lead additives if the timing is retarded.

At any rate, me being a Ford Fox-platform fan, I would say that a '78-'80 Zephyr/Fairmont or even a fairmont wagon would be an awesome candidate for a hot rod...or better yet, a sleeper. These car share the Fox-mustang chassis with minimal differences. You could build a wicked high-boost 2.3 turbo motor and drop it in, or even go with a 351W based stroker. Either way, it's all bolt in stuff. BTW, I have seen a fox-chassis Fairmont wagon(a "woody" nonetheless) with a 460 transplant, yank the front tires 3" off the ground...that was just plain silly.

who wrote that for you.

you're gonna need a question mark at the end of that if it's going to be considered a question...

...and if it IS a question--I wrote it. us literate folks are silly like that... you'll see someday...

Surprisingly it's in the dictionary...'A beginner in learning something'...I don't get it though...I clearly state that in my Avatar :doh:

pitiful isn't it.I really got to go.

posted by  scaramouch

nice obscure word... why are you quoting yourself, jackass?

and why would he be a tyro for asking you why you didn't leave like you said you were going to?

posted by  dodger65

poor thing.let me go.

posted by  scaramouch

w/e. just leave already...

posted by  dodger65

yeah its time to pull my boot out of your ass,which was surprisingly accomadating,how did that happen,OUT.War great white north!

posted by  scaramouch

do you mean accommodating, dictionary master? now i need to pull my boot out of your ass, which won't be hard, b/c i can't even touch the sides... OUT.(insert stupid random slogan here)!

idiot savant one trick pony you choose your title.

posted by  scaramouch

that's right! i can, b/c i'm not a 35 post, flaming-ass newb! now go away.

btw, i chose idiot savant. thanks for the inspiration!

what did I tell ya folks idiot.

posted by  scaramouch

folks? i don't know if you know this, but nobody's really listening... sorry to burst your bubble...

posted by  dodger65

idiot savant and one trick pony are one in the same mensa,nice choice.

posted by  scaramouch

nobody that would understand anyway,dolt.

posted by  scaramouch

Weren't you leaving a while back?

posted by  windsonian

not until you dragged your silly ass back to be kicked.

posted by  scaramouch

you mean "one and the same", you f*cking jackass...

...and they're not the same. a one-trick pony could theoretically be trained to perform different tasks, but is not... an idiot savant can most likely not be trained to perform any other skills besides the one that he is proficient at...

besides, you are the one-trick pony w/ the whole "mensa" thing... i'm just rebutting it....

are you planning on contributing anything to this forum, or are you just some jackoff that just joined to advertise his POS and flame people and have now pissed away your entire day trying to look intelligent...

posted by  dodger65

that was very immature of you dundumb er dundee.

You don't get it because youre an ignorant POS, spouting gibberish since your first post. Go away, little kid. Might as well, as you're going to be banned anyhow (if the supermods have any sense).

Funny how you talk about everyone else being inbred, illiterate, etc, yet you have yet to put together more than one actual, coherent sentence in a row this whole thread. You type like a retarded 10 year old.

do we have to back down there and kick your ass again i.e.,1812

posted by  scaramouch

"Do we have to go back down theree, and kick your ass again"...I think you're confusing Canada with Mexico :wink2:

The War of 1812...what was the point of the war of 1812? If I'm not mistaken, it was for more land...did the United States gain any more land? No...they didn't did they :wink2:

posted by  chris_knows

the point was to kick your ass,deed done.

posted by  scaramouch

mexico,don't they have history booklearning books down there.

posted by  scaramouch

I don't think you kicked our asses...According to history, both armies were equal, and there was no point in continuing the war...that's why the Treaty of Ghent was signed, on Christmas Eve, 1814 :wink2:

But why should you trust history? It's all written, with very little pictures :doh:

posted by  chris_knows

mexico,don't they have history booklearning books down there yet.

posted by  scaramouch

I've never been to Mexico, but I believe they have "booklearning books" there...Although, they would also have maps, and globes...which would show them that Canada is NORTH of the USA and Mexico is to the SOUTH...Dumbass

Getting back to the original idea behind this thread -- my ride is a 1978 Mustang II with a dual-quad, tunnel-rammed 5.0 H.O.

That's a pretty sweet ride, but why not change the exhaust manifolds?...Kind off odd how it's all shiny, and then rusted out there, other than that :clap:

posted by  chris_knows

Kinda looks like the car from MAD MAX.

posted by  sandlercd_22

you are right, that is a bad ass ride, but there is one thing i have to correct you on. they are headers not manifolds. the reason they are rusty is probably because he couldn't afford a nice pair of $400 ceramic coated ones so he opted for a pair of painted ones. unfortunatly the painted ones rust no matter what kind of paint you use :thumbs:

posted by  glagon1979

My bad, got confused there :doh:

posted by  chris_knows

Can't locate a repair manual for a '66 caprice can anyone help?

posted by  beth'66caprice

When you decide to correct someone, always make sure your correction is correct. Apparently unbeknownst to you, headers ARE exhaust manifolds. Tubular steel (generally speaking) instead of cast iron (again, generally speaking), but exhaust manifolds none the less.

Before you come back with an indignant response, go determine how to use a dictionary and look up manifold. As you were.
