WTF Friday: 10 More Crazy Show Rods

3

Decided to get lost in a few ‘good old days’ forums last night and when I emerged I came up with enough material for a continuation of the Crazy Show Rods WTF Friday series.

Like the first I can’t be sure that all of them were actually driven, but a bit of back and forth on the forums alludes to at least a few of them seeing some road time in some capacity.

Probably similar amounts of road time that full blown show cars today see really.

The “Magic Carpet” looks like it could be a little bit of a fire hazard
70s_show_rod_wagon
Not sure the name on this one though I’m sure it was clever
70s_Show_rod_tastee_freeze
Evidently this sat outside the Tastee Freeze in Downey California for some time. I’m sure it brought in more than a few kids who just wanted to stop at ‘the place with the cool car’

The Uncertain-T
70s_show_rod_uncertain-t_ad
I’d scoop that motor for $650 no problem today…
70s_show_rod_wine_wagon
The wine wagon is pretty peculiar to look at… can’t argue the follow through of a theme however
70s_show_rod_playbunny
I believe this one was called the Playbunny
With shag carpeting everyehwere and a name like 'The Sex Machine' I wouldn't recommend actually sitting in this car

Site Updates

Going to keep working away at the H2O International photos this weekend so that I can get most of them out the door next week. Don’t be surprised if a few make their way up on the between today and Monday.

I’ll be placing an order this week to restock some of the vinyl in as well. If there’s a particular colour you are waiting on feel free to let me know in the comments.

Flashback Friday

I’m almost certain I saw the girl below in Ocean City last weekend and if not she has a doppelgänger. Never the less here’s a throwback to the first ‘Girls With Hot Rides’ Theme Tuesday.
