Two Opposing Tudor Rods
By Mike Mello
Everyone has various egos, moods and certain sides to their personalities. Having never met the drivers of the following 2 cars, I like to wonder about what kind of driver pilots each machine. Is the level of finish, the body style, the color, truly representative of the driver? Maybe, maybe not. It’s not a rule, but whether it’s a new luxury sedan, a resto project, or an econobox, I always wonder: Who’s driving?
The machines seen here are similar in body style but that’s where it ends. Is this first one a ’32 Ford Tudor sedan? I’m not completely sure but what’s certain is that the exposed, open header got my attention from across the field like a fresh arrival at my favorite salvage yard. (If I’m wrong on the make, model or year on these cars, please say so.)
This next sled is from another world, or at least from the other side of town, when compared to the silver bullet above. Is it evil? Is it a hodge-podge rat rod anti-gloss Tudor monster? I’m guessing Chevrolet on this one, based on the crease down the center of the hood; note the barn door hinges that connect the hood to the cowl.
Who could say which car is more fun to drive? Which one is fits your style? Is it about how much you think the car is worth? Is it about character? Performance? I think I’d go for the rattrap, mostly because of the overall stance and feel. Either way, they’re two great examples of just how different you can finish a car. Gotta love this form of freedom of expression.
