Palmer Hot Rod Street Show (part 2)
Welcome back to the Streets of Palmer, South Australia – which came alive to the road of the Hot Rods in 2018!
Part One of this article had us out on the overflow area – the sporting oval. Read about it at the link below!
Part Two takes us into the main street of the town. I apologise in advance for the quality of some of the pictures. There were people EVERYWHERE, and no matter how patient I was at times the crowds just didn't let up. I've also taken guesses at what a lot of these cars are built from as I didn't get to speak with many of the owners. So PLEASE jump in and correct me, or add details I've missed, and I will update the article. I hope you enjoy part 2 ! In no particular order.. I give to you.. HOT RODS!
Well, if the number plate is to be believed this is a 1925 Chev!
And a 1927 Ford - I love it when the number plate gives me a clue! And those Air Intakes look great too!
1932 Ford Coupe - I love the look of this, although the completely open bonnet look is a little better, I think.
This 1932 Ford Deuce (thanks Licence Plate again!) is really old-school. Too cool!
Heres a VERY nice 1933 Ford Businessmans Coupe.
So this is a 1933 also, and I'm going to say it's a Ford!
And the lovely 1932 Ford Roadster from the header image. Clyde was a real winner on the day, attracting lots of attention.
I thought this was a bit too clean and tidy to be called a Rat Rod, all it needs is paint and it will be a stunner. 1935 Something - probably not a Ford or Chev though!
1935 Ford!! The attention to detail on this car was at an extremely high level, very beautiful rod. The hard top is really unusal, I thought.
Those teardrop lights are so fantastic! A 1938 Ford V8 holds up the headlights.
And from the same era, a 1939 Chevvy. Check out the length of that bonnet!
Here's another Ford F100 - a 1953-55 probably. Hey Fatso!!
Here's a locally built car - a 1953 Holden FJ. It KNOWS that it's cool!
Sorry - had to slip a classic in here! One of my favourites, a 1955 Ford Thunderbird! Whoot!
This 1956 Ford Utility had a LOT going on.. Very nice.
Looks like we got ourselves a Rat! The sticker on the door read "Boneyard" if that means anything to anyone?
Another Ford Coupe. Very old-school again. And very nicely done too.
This Mercury looked RIDICULOUSLY amazing, just stunning. 1949-53 maybe?
And how about this Ute? That is just SO well done that it isn't funny. Ford 28/29 Model A!
And last but not least, a sensational International-Harvester truck!
There are a pile of Muscle Cars to come - watch out for part 3 of Palmer Hot Rod Show!
