This is why my current project (46 Ford coupe) wont be a daily driver.

Shure Ive had other old daily drivers since but nothing Ive put as much time into.
And remember kiddies, if its got lift up door handles its modern.
And if you have to use profanities youve already lost the arguement.

Well said and I fully agree... sorry dude a HJ is not "old school" I dont think anything past 1970 really is, nothing against them at all but it is what it is.

Nick. If you're still reading this I think you're being a bit stubborn and hard headed. What you need to realize is that it's each to their own. Whatever floats your boat, milks your jersey etc. Everyone is different, has different life circumstances, priorities, preferences and is going to do things how they like. Most of all there are going to be people who to certain degrees and facets are going to be more or less 'into' it.

Not everyone has the mechanical know how or the time to work it out.
Not everyone has access to the right tools.
Not everyone has engine cranes, transmission jacks and tension wrenches.
Not everyone has the ample space to store an old car.

And sure some people (including myself on occasion) scoff or frown when people hoard perfectly good cars away in a shed and never drive them but hey, if they want to do that, that's fine. That car is going to last longer and be there it all it's glory for the next generation to own/admire. If everyone drove their old cars like you do they'd probably be all ratty run down heaps of shit. Get what I'm saying? There are pluses and minuses to everything. I'd probably prefer that someone who had a classic, poured ridiculous amounts of money into it, kept it in a shed for most of its life and towed it to shows rather than let it sit in a paddock and rot to something beyond repair. Which is the lesser or two evils Nick?

In summation. Stop being such a troll!

Dont know if you noticed the title of the thread......its What CAR fits what event......the whole thread is about CARS Laughing Laughing

And in this day and age, with the financial situation the way it is i think i'd rather invest in a car...... at least if it crashes it can be fixed. Cant repaint or panelbeat shares...... Laughing Laughing

I agree that a HJ isnt old school. i drive an HQ and thats 35 years old...... i dont consider that old school either. to me, when i think of an old school cr i think its more for the early 60's and older......after that most cars started loosing their shape...... Sad

nick your a goose, every forum that i know of you prove this time and again, for f@#$k sake you drive a HJ when you have something at least 10 years older tell us what it's like driving an old car every day

yes i know you have older cars, but i meen whole cars not parts of cars
Just noticed this. I have one mate who drives a HR and an EH daily. I have another mate whos fixing up an EH to be a daily. Another with a HD who drives that daily.. oh and another with an EH and HR.. yep.. also dailys.

And also i have mates that DON'T have just old Holdens, a my ex's little brother has a 1960 Belair he will be driving daily.. another fella i know has a '60 Belair as well and he drives his daily.

I just think its a bit sad that people that have had older cars since before i was born are now giving in and saying you can't use em daily.

Glad to see what i have said has started a few people talking
i dont personally think that anyway could have a hot rod or a kustom that is going to be a daily driver
to achieve that you would have to of built is as a brand new car. my chevy impala has done less that 5000km in the year, you can't take it to the shopping centre and leave it in the car park-more reasons than one- trolleys, people, kids, and its pretty big! so it dosen't fit in car parks.
as far as people saying The younger generation dont have respect for cars and people, i dont figure why that has to be, is that because there mates don't act properly, so they dont? there parents weren't morons so why do they have to be. I grew up in the 60's we had respect for our elders, when we went to hot rod shows, its the guys that were acheiving things is who we turned to for information and thats how we found out to do stuff!
my first car was a morris low liter which i fitted a 186 and aussie four speed it had a 13'' tail shaft triple webers (the back one was in the glove box the gear shift was behind the drivers seat) and i built it with the help of alot of older hot rodders to show me how to do things and i actually went for my driving test in that car and passed!
if girls dont know about cars, i suppose we can't really complain,because if they really want to learn they will if they are genuinly interested they will learn

pete

I dont agree with what you're saying about the younger generation being dis-respectfull, it's abit of a radical statement in my eyes. I know that ALL the old guys that I talk to & socialise with I get along great with & have high respect for them, the same way I do for young guys too.

The first 'custom' I did was a holden rodeo with shaved door handles,custom billet grill,welded up & smoothed tailgate fitted with 88model cadillac deville taillights. I didn't take it to greazefest when i owned it But I did have lots of negative feedback around the place (which didn't really bother me, because I did the car for myself) & that was from 'older guys' with mint condition classics which most of them would've paid someone else to do the work for them etc saying that it wasn't a hotrod, which I wasn't intending to make a hotrod what-so-ever I was mearly customising my car to my tastes , The mods perfermed on the car are very similar to what the hotrodders do. I had intended to get the chassis customized/notched & bodydropped until an 'older guy' in an RX 8 crashed into it & wrote it off. I then got a 'classic'that i've had for a few years & also a daihatsu charade, I would drive the daihatsu daily & the 'classic' on the weekend. But the gearbox & motor in the daily packed in So i've had to resort to driving my classic daily for the past 6-7 months, in that time it went to shit- I spent thousands on it because the gearbox blew up, head cracked,wiring fried,new radiator,sump etc etc, it's now working pretty perfect & reliable But I don''t like having to stress about it over heating or buggering up while it's out.

It's not a matter of younger people needing to give more respect to the older anymore than the old towards the younger.
ALL people need to respect each other the SAME. It's not a matter of just because i'm young that I have to go sucking ass to the older guys, I get along with the older & younger guys, But if older guys have a problem with young people in general in the scene they need to take a close look in the mirror & slap em'selvesd in the face.

I know of two hotrod clubs, That I wont name. One with 90%old blokes some build their own stuff Some pay others to do it & have ultra strict guidlines & need petitioning to join,& usa only cars etc that have a snobby attitude towards others in general. & another hotrod club that started as a bunch of mates with older blokes who are the nicest bunch of guys i've met, who show as much respect to me as they do to members & take time to explain certain things, who help each other build their rides & have regular bbqs & build days. I much prefer not to be in a car club.

My xpfalcon/fairmont isn't the factory colour anymore & has a rusty dash, lowered, 6cyl motor not an 8, & the only people who have a problem with it are old blokes because it isn't oringional or a 2door. I don't care that it isn't origional & isn't in the best shape It's mine & it makes me happy. I don't need elitists giving me shit about my car. at the moment I don't have to money or recources to have a 2door 59 caddy in showroom condition. But maybe oneday I will. I experienced it at the australia day hotrod show I heard people bitching about my car.

on the topic about pinups & girls not knowing every detail about the cars, who cares, they shouldn't be expected to know, alot of them are girlfriends & wifes of the 'rodders' or whatever you want to call them. Did the house wives back in the 50s get out in the workshop chopping up cars & pulling apart motors? why should they need to now?

As for the young guys wearing their cap backwards & wearing chains around thier neck That is completely irrelevant it doesn't matter what people wear at the 'rockabilly gigs' or hotrod shows, there is no rule book stating what you should wear or how you should look to own a rod/classic or go to gigs. I think the more people at the gigs & shows the better. I have noticed lots of people reacting negatively to people dressed in regular clothes or driving a japanese import to look at cars at a hotrod show we need to welcome these people, not scare them away.

in closing. I have respect for most of the old guys in the 'scene'. We all need to support each other & help eachother out. The attitudes need to be left at home on everyones behalf,

sorry if this offends anyone, i'd be glad to discuss in person in a friendly manner at a show sometime.

This is true but it breaks my heart when you see some chick sitting on that Buick Riviera, worth over a quarter of a million and they've got their heels all over it. One wonders if they had permission to do that or not. Just awful.

On a different note, no the 50's housewives probably would not have gone out into the workshop and such, but I do know in the 60's my Grandma would occasionally tear around in Grandad's Jaguar at high speeds Razz Hahahaha.

welcome to the forum 'gorilla biscuit' whats your name, or shall we just call you that, haha.
my dad wasnt saying all young people are disrespectful hell no! he is friends with all my friends (usually under 25's) and hes loves seeing and supporting people of the younger generation. Anyway i shouldn't have to..talk for him..im sure you will meet him one day and you will know.

He is actually talking about 3 or 4 people he has come across when the whole topic started. It was just a discussion starter.
He wears a rod shirt and jeans thats it..so does my brother.
some people go wayyy out on fashion, basically its nice to walk into a public environment other than a hot rod show, and get recognized or asked.
what do you drive? are you into rock n roll dancing? you look fantastic!!

Drea that is so true! worst thing is, the girls don't own it, but it would make a good accesorie in a photo, so who gives a stuff how much its worth, they will just get comfy, look hot, snap ,click, theres my myspace photo.
Then the car owner returns to some scratches ...awesome!

i admit,im am still learning about cars and not judge them by there purty colours. But, although we love the 50's ..its not the 50's now, we are talking on computers about this. and actually girls back then, knew a heck of alot more about cars than you think. Just watch you tube..most of my 'girl' friends have old classic cars..usually xp's, eh holdens. Until they can afford something a little more up the price range.

I think..we as 'classic car loving girls' respect cars, and having them in photoshoots is a bonus,and my god!! we appreciate the work behind them.
Girls jump on my dads cars, and get photos taken..and don't ask permission, it fustrates the hell out on me, and parents that let there kids jump all over them, even when theres a sign that says 'look! but don't touch! the very reason, he no longer enters cars into the brisbane rod show.

I don't particulaly like it either.. to me a girl whos gona dress all 50's style is gona impress me if they have an old car, drive it daily and have a clue about it.. whereas on the flip side they'll get my attention and then quickly lose it if they don't know shit about old cars or the traditions of Hot Rodding / Kustomising.


Sad I'm such a sad case, I looooooove my cars and always learning and LOVE the whole girly 'pinup' thing and I'd LOVE to just once maybe look the part.
I can sand the crap out of a car but I wouldn't know the first thing about putting make up on or doing my hair LOL I'd love to do it but I wouldn't be able to get past the 'omg people may LOOK at me!" hahaha

haha. I laughed at the 'elite group of greasers' part too. They changed around everything I said in the paper,

such as " I am part of the younger generation that keeps the scene alive"
I origionally said " yeah, there's a fair few young guys & girls who are into it all"

And my EP falcon, but it's good to see that the 'scene' is getting some positive promotion, unlike some other car 'scenes'

The pre-requisites, short stubbies & pulled up football socks with a mullet hair doo.

So ZED, whats your name?
