hiya all, yesterday I headed out to a local car show to do some research: I'm in the planning stages of building up a hot rod and trying to see what works, what doesn't and what I like. Needless to say, I got some decent photos. Enjoy

I really like the angle on number 2, but #1 is just not working for me. I think #1 needs to be level and it seems to be over exposed as well. I like the 3rd one too, but I'm more of a detail photo guy. Good work my friend!

Thanks! I appreciate the feedback fastsite. I've noticed with car shows that it can be a challenge getting the right angle but with some more practice and a wide angle lens, the photos will get better

So what are you thinking of so far?

Well the three candidates I have in mind due to parts availability, tons of reference materials are
-67 mustang fastback
-70 dodge challenger
-61 Chevy apache panel truck
Either of the 3 would be a restomod of sorts (brakes, steering, and suspension) though I am leaning towards the panel truck. The reason being that it could be used as a tow rig for my jeep down the road but the only possible downside is that I'd then want to go with a diesel engine and would have to more likely upgrade the axles as well. So the so called thinking and planning continues.

No big surprise, but I don't find the panel truck as inspiring as the other two choices? :D Unless it had 400+ bhp.

hehe yeah I know, but the idea of having an older (though modernized) tow rig would be fun to have. the other idea was the First gen dodge power wagon with a cummings 12v but that'd be tougher to find/parts for
