Great cool old rides always turn heads where ever they are driven. Who among us hasn't longed to drive one, ride in one or just take photos of one?
The definition of a hot rod is open to interpretation. Many people think that the cars shown in the movie "American Graffiti" were the coolest of the hot rods. Others like the style of imports. Others like totally customized examples. Each particular vehicle has a place in the hearts of owners and viewers alike. The main thing is that a cool old rod has to have style to be considered desirable.
If you want to get one of these great cars, you can check out Internet sites that list hot rod vehicles for sale. Be aware, however, that a lot of them are expensive. This is really true for older models that might be rare or in great shape. Generally, if you are looking for cheap hot rods or any cheap convertibles, you may be disappointed.

Cheap hot rod cars may carry high hidden costs. Antique auto parts can be very expensive. When you look for a unit to buy, you should pay attention to the cost of parts. Try to find hot rods that have modern components like engines or transmissions. If it has antique running gear, and you intend to keep it running well, you will be searching for parts as often as you drive, maybe even more. The site hotrodsandmore has listings for parts as well.
Ebay is another site that contains good examples for sale. You can search virtually anywhere in the world with eBay. Be careful, obviously. If the seller is a long way away, you may not be able to view the vehicle in person. Even if you get 100 photos from the seller, there could be hidden issues, especially if it is a vintage model. Try to find a vehicle that you can see before you buy it. Maybe you can enlist a relative who lives closer to inspect it for you. Transportation to your location may be an issue. Be very careful.
Craigslist often has vintage hot rod cars for sale that are in your area. People have been building hot rods for well over 50 years now. You never know what may lurk in a garage in your area. Keep an eye out for good local units on Craigslist.

Some are quite specific to cities or states. They could hold some real treasures for your consideration.
If you are in the market for a classic vehicle, you should check out the available units and find a good one. With any luck, you will be able to drive your own Ford or Chevy classic, a nice convertible or possibly even a vintage racer.
