Yep, those are Raleigh P.D. and NC state trooper cars from vastly different eras.  Why?  Well, beyond the fact

that they have always been great when I needed them, they made me think about today's car scene.  

 

As J.Q. Adams said; "Who we are, is who we were." "The more things change, the more they stay the same..." 

Insert your favorite cliche' here _______.

 The cars of today are the classics of tomorrow.  Sometimes I think this gets lost with some in the classic

car scene and modern scene focusing on the differences between them when they really are all about the same thing;

the love we have for our cars and trucks.  The classic hot rods in this show are fantastic...far better than they were when they

were made, and one hundred times better and safer than the original rods in the 1950s.

Here is my case in point.  Everything about this car is rebuilt and perfect.  It was done by an owner that had

the time and money to make it so.  I'm glad to see it hope he continues to share this great car.  However, I'm

guessing that the rods made at home on a budget in the 50s, that were driven daily weren't this nice. 

They were similar the modern customs today.  They were made out of late model sadans and coups that are the only

car the driver owns, and they are customized on what the owner can stash away after the bills.  In spirit,

nothing has changed, and hopefully never will. 

 

We will continue to be there to help anyone that wants to customize, dress-up, or improve the handling

of thier car or truck with wheels and tires.
