Thanks Peter,

I was a bit worried there for a minute as I was planning to buy it and drop
in a big block Chev with blower and Turbohydramatic 400 and top-loader
shift.  Haven't decided about the wheels yet but fatties on the back and
motorbike wheels on the front is probably the way to go.
As for paint; I think a pearlescent Candy Apple Red with orange flames would
set it off nicely.  Of course the timber trim would need to go.  Brushed
aluminium or stainless with engine-turning would be nice.

government, is it that person's opinion, or none of the above?  I've never
heard an age limit attached to the term "hot rod" before.

It is a Federal Government Vehicle Standard Rule covering registration
of "Street Rods"

"A Street Rod shall mean a vehicle that has a body and frame that were
built before 1949, that has been modified for safe road use, or a
replica of a vehicle the body and frame of which were built before

Anything later comes under a different regulation covering what is
called Individually Constructed Vehicles.
