  • Stumbled upon this hot rod meet yesterday.

    Walking into downtown Culver City yesterday evening, this hot rod meet just happened to be in my way. Naturally one is compelled to stop and look when such things are simply stumbled upon. Here are some pics.

    Now, the funny part for me was that several years ago, I thought about this place as an option for a westside parking lot meet but decided there was insufficient parking. But that was when it was a Rally's burger place and not a drive through coffee place. Either way, it looks like car clubs are welcome and there is plenty of space so long as you get creative. I think I may talk to them and ask if we can do a regular meet there. It would be fun and darn convenient!

    Good find! Shame they don't do burgers anymore, but I guess that free's up more space for cars.
    Love the "Big Daddy Roth" shifter on "Dirty Thirty"!

      Yeah, the feel there was definitely an interesting one. It wasn't a Rat Fvcker era vibe (yes, that was indeed the name used to refer to that style) but more of a metalhead distressed lowrider thing. These guys took great pride in the fact that their toolboxes traveled with them and the toolboxes were period distressed just like the cars. I thought it was very cool. This was a deliberate restoration style choice and there was clearly great thought put into a lot of it.

      Now, ain't no way in hell I would ride in one of these things anywhere near any other LA traffic because I'm rather fond of keeping all my body parts intact. But they were very cool and I appreciate the raw power and art in them.

      And about the burger place: it kind of sucked and I don't miss it. And there is an In-n-Out burger about 6 blocks away on the same street anyway.

        Definitely a style in its own right. Not for everyone, but cool nonetheless. Kinda like people who dig '80's Jap cars. They were absolute sh!t, but the styling was interesting for the time.

          A few of them had their SCTA (Southern California Timing Association) stickers on them and I have little doubt that a couple were legit old-school El Mirage dry lake racers back in the day.
