Ya the modern 80s tilt stearing wheel always says to me. How am I going to fix that...

There are some good aftermarket products available to give you the driving "experience" and safety, if that's what your looking for, but without looking like crap.

That may be true but only 31 is hidden in there logo.

Or HoJo's 28 ...

People that gripe about my 350/350, 72 Chevy truck tilt column, Chrysler brake and gas pedal and bucket seats out of same. Do have a Ford 8 rear and front end. 1940 Chevy tail lights. Maybe I'm in the wrong forum. More of a HAMM?

Oh well different strokes for different folks.

Not really HAMB material either, suggest street rod forums, HAMB is more "traditional" hot rod than street rod. This part of this forum is pointed towards the flathead years. And mostly stock stuff at that. Sure it's evolved to encompass built flatheads and some old style modifications. Still mostly stock Ford's from the flathead years.

I hate the rubberband tire and wheel combination some use. My '51 Merc. is stock and Flathead powered. My '30 coupe is chopped, channeled, and Has a Y-Block in it with a 9" Ford rear, C-4 auto, '36 dash 32 grill and shell. All Ford except the tail lights and they were on it when I bought it. they are Pontiac. I prefer 46-48 Ford tail lights

I'm glad for the streetrodders...Their castaways add more usable vintage parts to the mix...I'm looking around locally now for a running flathead for my 34 Pickup. Someone will yank one in favor of a 350 soon enough. And they're paying the bills so I don't care what they build. Everything can usually be un-done down the road anyway...

I do have a major dislike of Ratrods....absolutely can't stand them. Not talking about unfinished or primered nicely built traditional hot rods, but the ones with scary welds, wrenches for steering arms, barbed wire, diamond plate and expanded metal all over....and skulls...lots of skulls.
