Waveski Age 68 is not even close to old enough to start hot rodding...maybe you can sort of afford it by then !! I like "rat-ish trucks too!! The other day I opened my hood and the boys climbed right-up there to look !! With a "rat-ish" you don't have to worry about your paint,that is good !!
fonz8261, not to hijack your thread......so before I get called out for being grammatically-incorrect, that IS indeed a side mount spare on a 1951. I know, I know, 51's did not come with it. Kade said we had to have it that way, which means we HAD to have it that way.
ALL wheels having a hubcap, makes the truck look complete.
(I ain't sure 'Grammarian' is a real word either).
Yea my 49 was originally under the bed but i was missing basically everything and i kinda like the way the old trucks looked with the side mount spare but they are hard to find for a 3/4t so I made my own side mount to perfectly fit my tire size.
