Johnni D starts us off and shows us just how versatile a '32 Ford is for hot-rodding. First up is this sweet little red roadster pickup.
Next on the Johnni D slab is a roadster pickup in black. Yes, the '32 Ford comes in both pickups and roadster varieties. Maybe I should have explained that in the intro, but...yunno...lazyness.
Just know that they come in all kinds of varieties, OK? Do I really have to explain this to you ad nauseam? They spawned the birth of hot rodding for cripes sakes! Anyway, here is yet another variety, a yellow 5-window coupe.
Speaking of yellow 5-window coupes, Ralph Savelsberg built the most famous '32 Ford in the history of the world ever, the one from American Graffiti. We already have our most famous hot rod ever so that's a wrap. Thanks for reading everybody. Now get outta here! Go on! Git! There is nothing else to see here!
Oh wait, there's more. John Marshmallow builds a 1936 Chevy 3-window coupe he calls "F136". It sounds more like the medicine they give you to cure...yunno...that itch you don't wanna tell anyone about.
All that aforementioned weirdness comes into fruition with this Delage Dordeloto built by Vinny Turbo. He tells us don't even look try looking it up on the net. I wouldn't recommend it either. My last internet search for weirdness led to a trip to the Mac Store and some disconcerting looks from the techs cleaning my hard drive.
Coming up on more than a few weird internet searches would be my own entry. Lino Martins (hey, that's me, but we've established that already, right?) imagines what Russian hot-rodders would do with their 32 GAZ's. This spaced out custom ride is called Cosmonaut.
Someone named by primozm builds us two of the smallest hot rods we've ever seen. First up is the minuscule channeled 1928 Ford Model A Sedan rat rod in black with an iron cross. Arian oppression never looked so cute!
Next up on the by primozm slab is pretty much the same thing except without the iron cross but in all white with a black roof. They must be like two studs wide. Cute!
Now its time for what we call; The Wrath of Peter, a whole flurry of entries from Aussie engineer Peter Blackert. First up is this 1932 Ford Model 18 V8 Tudor custom called 'The Phantom', which makes me hungry for red hot dogs for some odd reason.
Customizing hot rods are a personal thing as evidenced by this green Tudor Custom called 'Kermit the Frog'. No frogs or hot dogs were harmed in the making of this render. Cool bicycle and street corner though.
Two things are no longer considered cool in today's times: Making fun of fat people and Bill Cosby. But back in the day, not only were those two things cool, but expected. Here's a 1932 Ford Model 18 V8 Custom Roadster Hot Rod called 'Fat Albert', named for the Cosby-made cartoon of yore.
Speaking of drugging and fondling scores of women, Donald Trump isn't cool either but we elected him anyway...or rather the dumb half of our country did. Or maybe it was neo-nazis. Or was it our grandparents? Or fake news? Or Russian hackers? I don't even know which story to believe anymore. What I can believe in is this black and chrome roadster called Black Beauty.
You like sitting in a bathtub? Sure, we all do! But who has time for that anymore? Anyway, Peter tells us that sitting in this dark red low-boy would be akin to sitting in a bathtub. Some bath salts, a glass of wine and some soothing jazz ought to round out the experience nicely.
Women enjoy a hot bath and soothing jazz. And also ZZ Top, which frankly is like the exact opposite of soothing jazz and a hot bath. Some are even OK with groping if you ask nicely, but not if you're Bill Cosby. Now I'm not even sure what women are into. There's no steadfast rule other than this famous Eliminator is probably alright in moderation.
If you really like something, why not do it twice in the same challenge and give the blog writer anxiety about having to write fresh new jokes for it. Here's Black Beauty again in a smaller scale. Let's see, fresh new joke...um...Russian hackers like sitting in the bathtub?
Nothing says hot rodding like wearing a paper ice cream scooper's hat. That's why Lucky Eddie dons his paper hat while posing next to his dark red '32 V8 custom coupe. Turns out Lucky Eddie is just no good at Poker, Craps or Go Fish. the moniker is for ironic purposes only.
In the hot-rodding world, we're so used to racing slicks, flames and outsized engines that we hardly know what a 1933 Ford *actually* looks like. Turns out its quite a bit like this dark blue number.
But why leave a '33 Ford the hell alone when you can hot rod the ever loving bejesus out of it? That's what this Blue Devil is all about. I particularly dig the aquamarine colored engine with this otherwise understated black paint job. Peter provided a link to the real inspiration.
There existed a problem in Australia in the early 30's. You like a sturdy workhorse to take the pigs to market but you also want something nice enough to show up at church without looking like a total ingrate in front of God and everybody. What's a farmer's wife to do? Behold the 1933 Ford Bandt Ute. God would be pleased.
When I proposed this challenge Peter thought it would be chock full of "little deuce coupes" from The Beach Boys song. Turns out we all had other things in mind, like Russian space themed hot rods and F136's. But thankfully Peter averted that crisis by submitting the Little Deuce Coupe. God would be pleased.
When it comes to pleasing God, Tim Inman knows no bounds...which could explain all the restraining orders against him. Still, the guy has got some mad skillz when it comes to playing with legos. Here's his Pro-street 32 Ford truck in dark red.
Well, that sums them all up then. It wasn't the most populous of challenges but all in all we did alright. Good quality entries here. What does the future for the world's most popular blog then? I'm guessing more pictures of cats who want to haz cheezburgers. But for us, we have a little challenge this month called Cars Noir...all about cars, trucks and bikes with a dark palate or purpose. Sounds like some scary-ass stuff! Let's see what we do when this group moves to the dark side, but for now, leave your intelligent and insightful comments in 3-2-1...
