The Story – - – One thing’s for certain about this spic-&-span Hot Rod 35 Dodge Brothers Pickup Truck is that it is everything a cool hot rod, rat rod or street rod should be. It all ties in to what Bob Peterson late publisher of Hot Rod Magazine said back in ’82. ”The problem with the car companies is that they build dull and unimaginative cars.” And those of U who have been to VivaChas! a few times will note is that ol’what’shername has said the same on numerous occasions. ~:0)

This bewdy of a Dodge Pickup is a hot rod that puts most production cars and trucks to shame. Now tell me how is it possible that it would cost the auto-manufacturers any more to build something similar to this hot rod than their lines of mundane government mandated clone-cars. Safety – I hear some nanny-stater whine. Well whine on brother b/c this Dodge is lighter than most econo-boxes – safer too! Or at least with just a smidge of tinkering it could be. But there we go again acting as though it’s “Big-Brother’s” place to tell us how cars are to be styled and constructed. Has anyone else noticed that gover-involvement spells the ruination for anything to which they’re connected? – Ha! I give U theh Post Office! – Ta-Da!!!

Anyway enough about that bag-o-beans. What I really want to talk about is the remarkable detail and outstanding beauty of this Dodge Hot Rod Truck! Dodge Brothers back in the thirties built cars and trucks that looked like something special. The team of two brothers – or two friends I don’t remember which – that built this hot rod took the great foundation laid by the Dodge Boys and finessed it into something even more refined and certainly more sporty. This hot rod in person – so to speak – is even nicer than any photo can reveal. The detail and craftsmanship is second to none. Kudos to the building team.

U guys should buy urself a nice 16 × 20 print of this bewdy for ur wanna be wall or ur own clubhouse where u work out ur secret plans to dominate the automotive world. The detail in a larger size print of this truck will knock ur socks right off – go for it! ~:0) VivaChas!

    That is bitchin-twitchin and like, totally tubular dude! LOL
    Outstanding image, I really like this!

  • Thanks Billy-B – I was gob-struck when I came across the truck. Whilst talking with the owners I felt m’self gushing a bit – something I hate to do – but am not above to get “inside”. Sadly, they would not take me offer of $750 USD nor let me drive it to see if I wanted to raise the offer. Spent the rest of the evening in the dunny sobbing quietly to m’self reading the latest issue of HOT ROD Magazine w/o me specs – wuf! Finally ol’what’shername worked her ample magic to break the spell of that Dodge by announcing supper and I began to climb out of that abyss – Ha! And now thanks to her and U and some others – I believe I can move on with me life w/o that little rod. It won’t be easy – it won’t be quick – but I will get through this – - – thank you Billy-Blu – - – ~:0) VivaChas! ~:0*

    I’m in awe of your ability to turn.. what for me would be just another car – into a “creature” with a life of its own. Well done ?

  • Gee Kira – I’m humbled – thank you – I feel the same way about each image and do what I can to give them a bit of personality – some are more alive than others that’s for sure ~ thanks again ~:0) VivaChas!

    Fantastic work from a small compact Chas.
    Cheers Neil

  • Thanks Woodie – I used to use a pinhole camera for this stuff but ol’what’shername left the cardboard box that was the camera out in the rain so rather than make another pinhole cammy I went digital! I like digital – hated working in the darkroom and making prints – yetz! Digital Rocks! ~:0) VivaChas!
