I’ve never really bought into the idea that a car of any type “should” have one particular motor or another. I feel that the motor choice is solely up to the owner, and while there might be more standard, easier, cheaper and convenient options I admire those who go the extra mile to be creative or use a motor they had on hand.
Some people might disagree with the motor choice in the end, but ultimately hot rodding is about using what you’ve got on hand to make something better and unique. That and a lot of loud noises and tire smoke.
Today’s Theme Tuesday celebrates those who have broken the unwritten rules by using Japanese motors in their American hot rod builds.
