    Another year rolls by and Cooly Rocks On 2017 is warming up with a few early turn outs before the big weekend.



    I like the way there is plenty of room under the bonnet and you can see how old cars work. Nowadays you can barely get a finger in between the engine and the bodywork.







    Careful round those caddy fins!

    Things got wetter each day at Cooly Rocks On after weeks of blue skies.

    The last day dried up a bit at the end.







    25K is a steal for splittie. Don't know what is up with that price.



    These boys were banging out some raucous rock. Just 2 blokes. One on a bass and singing and a drummer. No guitar but sounded great. This was a metal/rock version of 80's Depeche Mode's Personal Jesus

    Terrific stuff Loops. Thank you for sharing.

    Love those Cadillacs from the 50's & 60's.

    In post #10 is that a red Dodge Charger hiding behing the Ford ?
    (Definitely not a Challenger.)

    Interesting band. Looks like the bassist is going full Cliff Burton.

    And, with this, the whole rat-rod thing has officially gone too far:

    Great thread though!

    Finally a sunny weekend for Cooly Rocks On.

    Last 2 years have been a bit damp.

    Maybe spoke too soon though as we are only halfway.


    Nice old XJ



    ....SS!





    Not a Jag MkII but a Daimler 250





    E-Type must be worth a bit of coin these days

    What's with the rusty machines, Looper? Are they projects that haven't been started yet? Or it is some modern "cool" look down-under?

    Rat Rods usually have this designer rust finish. The VeeDub has a carefully crafted multi coat worn off effect. The work of an artisan and not the weather.

    Here are some more from day 2
