Get creative - Retro style

Postby m3a1 » August 28th, 2016, 10:17 pm

I know there are some old school rodders among you. Many, many coats of paint and a whole bunch of hand-sanding went into getting "the look." Even the cracked paint was done on purpose. If you liked the 60's, and if you like rat rods, and if you like Rat Fink, you'll love this!

Enjoy!

Big Daddy Ed Roth, I have a couple autographed pictured from him. Working at a dragstrip got me the opportunity to meet and talk to him several times. He was a fun guy and about as far out as his creations. That is a neat item to have.

Yep. I made this up especially for a cousin of mine. He has some buddies who are deeply involved in rodding and he spends a lot of time helping out and drooling over their stuff. I can't give him a street rod but I can give him something for them to drool over. This was meant to be the perfect addition to a shop or man cave. This particular machine is a Northwestern Model 60 and replacement parts are cheap and plentiful so if you want to build one, don't hesitate. They are as simple as dirt. A cautionary note, though. They still make these and it is often cheaper to buy a new one than to refurbish an old one for a project.
