Theme Tuesdays: Non Typical Hot Rods

3

I’ve done uncommon low, and uncommon low riders so the only natural progression of the oddball Theme Tuesday series is less than typical Hot Rods.

It’s pretty cool to see the hot rod aesthetic applied to such a wide range of vehicles. In some cases in might look a little weird but in most it’s actually quite awesome.

Being a postal Jeep this has fairly unique proportions but it’s not too bad and incorporating the post box was a nice touch

Rodzilla is a 29.3 litre 12 cylinder Studaker bodied monster of a hot rod built by the Blastolene Brotherhood
If the name Bladstone sounds familiar it is because they also did the 'tank car' owned by Jay Leno
If the name Blastolene sounds familiar it is because the same group of crazy fabricators also built the ‘tank car’ owned by Jay Leno

Built by the same people ‘Bertha’ (which is admittedly a bit of a stretch for this post) was originally a fire truck…
Still one of the coolest Miatas I have ever seen
