Speaking of Hot Rods and Bad Girls, the 1934 Ford Model B with a V8 engine was the car Bonnie & Clyde died in when ambushed by Louisiana State law officers, riddling them with a hail of bullets.
The 1930s cars are very popular with classical car owners. Most of these Hot Rods do not have their original steel body, because over the years they have become rare. Instead they have fiberglass or new minted steel coping the structure. And of course the original engines are 'souped up' or replaced with modern V8 engines.

wonderful Hot Rot you are presenting here. Excellent sharpness and clarity of the picture. We will have a big old-timer show here in Luxembourg next weekend and I will surely present some fine cars here on TE. TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg

Some of these cars are really like works of art on wheels, and this is a prime example. Beautiful bodywork, beautiful paintwork, and a perfect angle to shoot from. The light is falling perfectly on this to show it in all it's glory. Class car, thanks as always.

Very nice shot of this classic Ford. Clarity and lighting was very good.

Wow, if this aint the Wacky Racers, I dunno what is. I like the elongation of the car's chassis,no doubt caused by the POV and the wide-angle lens. The colours and chrome are very dynamic and although this is a stationery shot, has it has of dynamism. Good work!
Thanks for sharing
