Default Outlaw: What's missing?

Meant to say "Lawless" (same thing...)

So this car makes the local show rounds and I was wondering why the holes in the back until I took a closer look.

I report, you decide.

that sure cleans up the engine bay.
I wonder what was done to get the air through. I`ve had cooling issues using more obvious cooling systems

They tried to capture a little bit of what Dave Lohr did with his "Death's Doorstep" Coupe. Not a bad effort, but it ain't this...

Yea, cray cray....I see the air intakes on Doorstep....being a coupe.

I believe there are a couple of push fans on the radiator in back to move some air.

He mostly flies under the radar, but stays quite busy at his shop. The work is as impeccable as ever...

A local guy has a Dodge pickup rat rod with the radiator in the back. He flows the coolant through the 2" x 4" frame rails, to the radiator on the passenger side and returning to the engine on the driver's side. He claims it stays very cool.

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

I see cars at Texas cars do that but always wonder how that works in our really hot summers!

That sounds like a lot of coolant to heat up in the first place. Then it has lots of time/space to dissipate said heat. I can see it working. At the price of coolant, it may not be all that economical, but most hotrods are not intended to be so anyway.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.
