At a time of prohibitive costs, this book shows how a great hot rod can be built on a modest budget. The author documents his own building project--a "Track-T" kit roadster--showing in step-by-step detail how to turn a pile of parts into a quintessentially cool hot rod. This provides a detailed, easy-to-follow guide for building a car of your own. Parks’s advice and instructions cover every aspect of the affordable hot rod build, from establishing a target vehicle and budget to finding parts, building the car, and fine tuning the finished vehicle on the road. The book also includes a full resource guide.
Hot rods are more popular than ever, but that popularity has driven up the cost of original parts and finished cars, making hot rodding more expensive than ever. But there’s hope for the hot rodder with a limited budget: How To Build a Cheap Hot Rod. This book shows how to create a great hot rod without breaking the bank.
Author and hot rod builder Dennis Parks shows you step by step how to build a car for less than the cost of a new Hyundai, in this case a very cool Model T, a.k.a. "Track-T", roadster. Parks is your expert guide as you identify your target vehicle and budget, find parts, build your car, and fine-tune the finished vehicle. Money-saving tips and detailed how-to sequences provide the essential information builders need to make sure their hot rod projects get built right and for the right price.
It's basically an assembly manual for the T-bucket kit; not really what I was expecting, but well written and if that's what you're buliding, then it's perfect for you.Published 3 months ago by Rob D
