I dunno fellas, I always thought of a "traditional" hot rod to be that of a very early era car that would have been modified by what was available and cheap at the time right after WWII. It just happened that the flathead was the engine of choice at the time. But there were many 4 cylinder and 6 cylinder hot rods in the golden era. But I think ya'll are closer to what people consider a hot rod in the current era. To me a hot rod is something truly crafted by the creator and something that uses no or very little aftermarket parts. Instead of getting parts from a manufacturer a hot rodder would source their parts from a salvage yard or another vehicle. But honestly the only thing that really matters is build your car to fit your style and enjoy it, and I think we can all respect that.
