This is a perfect example of 'The New Traditionalist'. Todd built his ’29 Ford Roadster about five years ago and did a wonderful job creating this period perfect 'poor boy's' hot rod. Todd's car captures the essence of a hot rod on a tight budget put together by a teenager in the early 1950s. During the late 1940s and early 1950s, most parts to build a rod like this would have been readily available in the local junk yards. Other parts would have been hand fabricated, while a precious few would have been purchased new from a speed shop. The set of Hotton & Sullivan aluminum heads could have been purchased locally in 1948 for the hard earned sum of 50 bucks.
