Was at the bank with my nephew getting some paperwork done when he told the lady he would rather restore cars than street rod them. I know my mouth was hanging open cause I felt my jaw drop. He went on to tell her it is much more of a challenge and way more expensive to build one back the way SOMEONE ELSE had done them than to do as you please on a rod. This from a guy I always figured was thinking of a way to put an LS onto a margarita blender.

Sir, I think most people have the opinion your nephew is leaning. Why? Old movies, i.e., Turner Classic Movies, show originality of old trucks versus stuff that was street rodded. Thanks for sharing Evan. V/r, Nick

I think I’ve seen one of those LS-powered margarita blenders. Just a touch overkill. Seen a few hot rods that were that way too. I like your nephew. grin

I'm sure "Tim the Tool Man Taylor" would have built an LS powered blender. Evan no doubt you have been a powerful influence in your nephew's life so is it really that big of a surprise.

I'm not sure, but I think everyone misread what Evan was getting at.
While everyone is entitled to what style of build they prefer, the statement that it is way more expensive to restore one than to build a custom doesn't make sense to me. Look at what all those custom kits cost. Look at what it costs to pay a hotrod shop to properly install those parts.

Don't get me wrong, of the 17 projects in the shop 14 are street or resto rods and three are correct restorations---a 69 Fairlane, a 60 Studebaker, and a 58 Chevy. I just didn't know he favored the originals. The last stock truck was a terrific running, driving 57 3100 235 3sp BW overdrive. It later returned for V8, automatic OD, discs, and a-c. Can't win em all.
