    Define hoT rod ! ! ! ! !

    So when i was young a hot rod was a roof chopped A - B model sedan etc rusty loud and (a turn on )
    but lately ive been calling my mk3 cortina a hotrod ..

    Not again.

    Think of it this way. If you didn't actually own that mk3 cortina would you still in all honesty regard it as a hot rod in your eyes if you saw it in a car park or would it be a modified mk3 cortina?

    Tin hat firmly on, IMO you can hot rod anything as its a process, what your left with is in the eye of the beer holder.
