          Only when you're too poor to own more than one car.
          You see a vehicle as a means of transportation that must pull multiple duties.
          It's your identification to others as well as your only mode of travel to work and shopping.
          Meanwhile I have a shitbox DD, a 4x4 for bad weather, a 600hp toy for Sundays, a serious 4x4 for fricking around outside of civilization and a longbed for hauling.

          You had to buy a single vehicle to define who you are.
          I have multiple vehicles to suit my mood.

            I'm guessing your 600HP Sunday car is an actually driveable car that you enjoy taking to tracks, highways, backroads or even gymkhana.
            Meanwhile the boomermobile is still a stupid appliance consisting of an automobile only fit to be driven in a straight patch of road a 1/4 mile long.

            >Just because YOU don't like it doesn't make it less legitimate as a motorsport.
            My tastes don't count. Just like horse races were held to improve the breed, motorsports are a way to push engineering forward. A homosexualmobile tuned to run for 10 seconds at a time is pathetic. Even if your aim was to clear the fastest quarter mile, anything from a special catapult to top fuel dragsters are the logical end of the quest. Taking a normal car to turn it into an horizontal sled will never amount to shit.
            >Go out to the Bonneville salt flats and tell those guys they're stupid and their cars are stupid.
            I understand the idea of terminal velocity testing. The japanese had their Yatabe track, Europe uses various german tracks (I think Nardo was one of them but not sure), etc. Max speed is a staple in engineering.
            >You're not a true automotive enthusiast if you can so easily dismiss a specific category.

            You don't NEED to take turns at 100mph.

            I was the one calling him a boomer bootlicker, but what do we care about how he paid for his cars ? He might be actually rich, I wouldn't be surprised after seeing that last "post your car" thread. I still think butchering a functional car to make it into a dragsled is stupid, especially when you could build a dedicated dragster if you're aiming for maximum acceleration.

            I would like to start by explaining that there are 2 of us, so as to no be associated with the other homosexual arguing with you. I don't dislike martial arts and all that other gay shit he said.
            I meant what I said though, your examples are wrong. The majority of drag racing cars can be put back on the street legally by swapping the slicks for radials, and putting the exhaust back on. Some might have bulbs out because the don't matter on the strip. The other portion of race cars were built from already derilict cars ready for the scrap yard because they're a cheaper platform to acquire and what makes them unsafe for the street again won't matter on a strip. The idea that people are taking functional cars and destroying them is ridiculous.
            As far as sponsors being shit, you said if they were pushing automotive engineering it would make sense. They are. That new process talked about in pic related in this article https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.motortrend.com/how-to/1601-shelby-block-tech-fords-plasma-transfer-wire-arc/amp/
            Came about after a drag racing team I know recorded that he original sleeves were walking on a very tiny scale at higher hp.

    You need a large workshop space, ample free time to learn the fabrication skills necessary, and the financial security to blow thousands on rolling shitposts. Therefore, someone who can do this will likely own their large semi-rural or rural home outright, will have had a long career where they've been able to practice some fabrication skills through work and/or an office job with a relaxed environment that lets them leave early often and just be available by phone, and pays well enough to have a cash surplus. Most people don't get those things until they are older, and prior generations were objectively more prosperous in most first world nations than today's youth. You still CAN find young hotrodders today, but many will have extended or immediate family who meet the above descriptor to get them started. Many more young people are instead just stuck dreaming and saving.

    I'm in my mid-30's and hotrods have been tacky for as long as I can remember. It was a boomer only hobby because this kinda shit went out of style in the 90's.
    Hot rodding was what boomers did as teens in the 50's, and in the 80's, boomers had enough disposable income to make monstrosities like pic rel for the nostalgia.
    Car "culture" trends come in cycles. What was legitimately cool for a generation of teenagers, later has a resurgence when that generation hits their 40's-50's and has money. Then it becomes mainstream, played out, and for old people. In 15-20 years, car shows will be nothing but blacked out Hellcats, pimped out Escalades, current gen Camaros with underglow, with old pot bellied frickers sitting beside them in lawn chairs talking shit about whatever miquetoast Democrat is in office.

        Cost to build, cost to fuel, cost to keep. With how little wealth younger generations have, it's not surprising the only car culture they have is shitboxes.

        Most drove shitboxes in the proverbial day too. Serious car customizers are plentiful but it was never really a widespread hobby because it required enthusiasm, working space and determination to learn how to wrench plus a modest amount of talent.

        The cost is WELL within what "younger generations" spend on toys though and not everyone is poor. I see far too many other expensive toys to buy the idea everyone younger than fifty is poor but there are a shitload of crybaby b***hes. Building things yourself doesn't need to be very expensive. If you wrench then you save tons of money on all sorts of DIY. I certainly did and do.

        You're extremely moronic. I'm not mad about anything. I build these cars, I'm that guy. That's how I know it'd alive and find. What you don't understand is that this shit shown in op, that shits never made a run. Go do a drag strip and see it for yourself. Ive had my hands in dozens of these builds. The people would rather you come and run your daily than brag about what's on your trailer.

      Someone hasn't read up on their history. Car culture has never been about waste I'll side on martial arts guy here you're the entirely self absorbed frick you claim we are. Or perhaps you're pic related. Either way, the care was borne on waste not. Henry of course built them from the packaging they came in, but then even used cutoff bits to sell charcoal.
      Go frick yourself again. I know nobody else is frickin ya for ya

        Do you have more stories of being on the building side ?

      And next time have the balls to link my frickin post you homosexual. Trying to hide by not doing so till the thread dies doesn't make you less stupid. Just makes you a fricking coward.
      Let's see you build a fricking useless car from scratch from engine designe, chassis, whatever and not have it break in the mildest of warranty given today. I'd give you props for 10k miles. You're a fricking loser, a moron. Don't ever quote me again
