Vintage rodding now is basically the same as it was when it was just rodding. You find the best parts, the rarest treasures, and put them on your ride to make it go faster or look cooler. Wondering around amidst this treasure trove of chrome and aluminum and rust and WD40, the gorgeous bits and pieces you find are sometimes astonishing. Also amazing are the clever ways people work around pieces that they either can't find or don't want to buy. What follows is a gallery of awesome parts treasures which I'm sure most are at least two or three times older than I am (check out the hand welded intake manifold - rad).
