Note the lowered stance, windened wheels and fat rubber. Looks diabolical! I've always prefered chopped and widened stock wheels over alloys.

Talking My fantasy hot rod

Here's an Indian Hot Rod. Premier Padmini running on a 1.8L Isuzu Petrol.





Here's something I'd visualised on Adobe Photoshop. Anybody daring to do something like this?

Aw Man.

That Fiat is the thing of my dreams. Do lets talk more about what would constitute the ideal powerplant for such a car in real terms with whats available in India.

Well the concept of building a Hot Rod has been playing in my mind for quite a while. And have been contemplating putting a conti engine in a 40's/50's car and then going the whole process of making it a proper hot rod. The only reason i have been holding back is the cost of bringing back a car that is lying for years, i mean the taxes, registration etc. and especially in kolkata its very expensive. does someone have an idea of how to get around this issue?

for e.g. if i buy a 1950 car which has been lying unattended for say 9 years, taxes not paid etc. etc. then the cost of just gettin it to run on the road legally would be considerable.

What a dramatic photo! When I first saw it thought it must be the best HOT ROD in India and then reading the fine print while disappointed that it was your creation I said to my self what are creative piece of workmanship and a great tool to see what can be done. The next step is to have some one undertake such a project and then find the right shop to execute the project.

I've been thinking about building a custom Fiat with a hotter engine, not this big, and putting a flame paint job on it. Any chance you can remove the engine from the photo and put a flame on the front?

I understand the current road tax is about R1200 x 9 = 10,800 x 2 (penalty) = R21,600. A BIG part of the budget!

I had been to Adirondack Nationals car show in Lake George in NY last year. Many such machines were on display.
Will upload some of the photos tonight.

Meanwhile you can drool at the photos on the official website for the car show Adirondack Nationals - Photos - 2008 - Page 16

Buddy an Amby has been already been converted into an AmbieRod long back by none other than our DC.


So nothing is foolish as long as you dare to think beyond the herd.

Here's a few photos I pulled from other threads that deserve to be included.

1. A nice "custom", tinted windows would be nice.
2. A great looking "hot rod/custom"! I would like a pair of those rear view mirrors, as nice as I have seen.
3. An awesome "custom" that, if it was in my stable, I would do a flame job on the hood and change out the brown upholstery fabric to another color.

Totally agree with what you say. Thinking of that, there is a single owner Mark III in a good condition for sale, guess for around 30-35k. If anyone is interested, I'd take pictures and get more info on it.
