seems to me a "true" hillbilly deluxe would be an american car not as i heard it on the telly the other day "If your car is Japanese, but made in America...
...in a patronizing attempt to pretend we have a viable automobile industry...
...press 3.

i dont even car if its a dodge, a chevy, a ford or jeep but it has to be a american vehicle

Also, I don't know how I missed this CBP before, but I like it! I don't have a definite entry as of yet, mainly because I have tons of others that probably won't get finished for other CBPs :) , but I just might have come up with something for this one, maybe even go through some of my old trucking songs and get a big rig in the mix! :)



what about alan jacksons "where i come from" ?

it can be any rusty old truck with a missing universal joint or even the bobtail rig that called him on the CB

i know you got something you can slap that label on ;)

You might have a point Eelco, but you'd be surprised how many of us good ole country boys drive Yotas like in the video! Even though I have my big Ford now, even this redneck had a Toyota at one time, too! That wasn't my only foreign truck either, I also had an Izusu pickup that was one of the best trucks I ever had! Even out four wheeled by friends Chevys and got where they couldn't!

still just doesnt seem right Matthew
for starters, i just camt picture a confederate flag on a nissan
and secondly, can you imagine a rear bench with say a morning musume flag drapep over it instead of a skynyrd one?


im sure they make decent enough cars but its just not right
remember what cotton hill said about the maroon mitsubihi?

Mitsubishi? They made the planes that bombed Pearl Harbor! I ain't sellin' Hitler's canoe to no traitor!

I've got to agree with Jim 100%, just because they used a Toyota in the video doesn't mean that only a Toyota is a "Hillbilly Deluxe". I'm a born and bred West Virginia hillbilly, and my slightly customized 1990 Ford F350 4x4 dually is my "Hillbilly Deluxe", even with it's rusted front fender and hillbilly rust repair, DUCT TAPE! :) :) Really though, back to the serious side, up here in the states (since I noticed you're from the land down under Aaron) I've seen all different types of trucks that have "Hillbilly Deluxe" on the bug shield or back window or across the top of the windshield, I've even seen some big rigs named "Hillbilly Deluxe"!

Also, I don't know how I missed this CBP before, but I like it! I don't have a definite entry as of yet, mainly because I have tons of others that probably won't get finished for other CBPs :lol: , but I just might have come up with something for this one, maybe even go through some of my old trucking songs and get a big rig in the mix! :)



I was hoping to get a big rig or two into this thing! I even suggested it in my lead-in, with a couple of references to "Convoy". (OK, so that one's a little corny. On the other hand, I might just paint the Monogram VW Microbus I have waiting to be built chartreuse, slap some "Flower Power" stickers on it, and enter it after granny's Dodge is finished... After all, I am a "Friend of Jesus"!)

I tell you what guys, I may do hillbilly deluxe at this stage, however if a trip to the hobby store doesn't warrant good kit results I may have to find another song but I'll get into it :lol:

I was thinking if after I completed this build if anyone would be interested in another communtiy build focused on other music genres? it's a bit of a stretch but we'll see.

Not yet... You want it, you got it! Just out of curiousity (since I'm not familiar with the song), how much does it describe the car? "Antique Cadillac" leaves it pretty wide open. Anything from a Jo-Han mid-60's Coupe DeVille all the way back to one of their 1930's V-12s could fit that description.

... And you're VERY right about the Blown Hemi! :blink:

that is about msot of the description right there
he song does go on to say the driver was dressed like 1950, half drunk and hollowe eyed

but it would be interesting to see how one would interpret a car like that, what they would do to make it personal to the driver (you dont have to call me mister mr, the whole world call me Hank)


im passing on this one thoug, i got my plate full and im leaving for a 2 week vakation tonight

Okay some shots from me finally. This is an AMT 34 Ford p/u I recently got from Clay in a trade. This will be built as a stakeside flatbed shop truck for a fictional salvage company called L&R Original Parts Rescue. So far I have modified the kit suspension to get rid of the wishbones. I plan in totally scratching the flatbed (& stakesides)so I made a frame for it from 2x2mm stock. The rear step/ trailer hitch is to add the trailer I made a few months ago. The engine is the flattie from the Revell 50 F-1 and will feature Ardun Heads and triple carbies.

This build will be mildly weathered and feature distressed suede paint. No salt or hairspray here just paint that has gotten thin in areas and a little primer showing through. I plan on taking 1/8 inch out of the top (bout 3 scale inches) no hood sides. Checkerboard firewall, lots of wood, mud flaps in the rear. I'm still kicking the interior around for this one. I may use the bench seat and make another mexican blanket. Lots to do still.

what about the other version of "The Ride" ??
i dont know who its sung by but it was done right after we lost one of the greatest drivers of the NASCAR Cup Series!
and if you said "Dale Earnhardt Sr." well then you would be right on the money!

Nothing new on my mustang but I plan on some primer and starting the paint Sunday.
If it works out I'll post some photos.



Well Earl, you're a lot further along than I am (actually, it seems like EVERYBODY is!), but that's only because I'm involved in about 4 other CBP's at the moment. Two of those are nearly done - in paint and being chrome foiled, interiors finished.

Rob, I really like where you're going with your "Flatbed Ford"! One of the best things about it from where I sit is that it's nothing like I envisioned it. To me, it was always a mid-60's F-200 with faded white over red two-tone paint, a wooden push bumper, clearance lights on the roof, and a dog sticking it's head out the window. About the only things the two had in common were the dual rear wheels, the trailer hitch, and the business advertisement on the doors. It's models like yours that I had in miond when I came up with the idea for this CBP.

Dale, Sr. was, is, and always will be THE MAN! I don't cae what his detractors said about him, he never raced anyone any harder than he expected to be raced himself. He never cried when he crashed, unlike some current drivers. I don't like to name names, but the worst offenders surprisingly have the same initials as Kyle Busch, Carl Edwards, Juan Pablo Montoya, and Denny Hamlin!

By the way, I have that song in my iTunes that I downloaded from the now gone file sharing site Limewire, and acorrding to the way it was listed, the song was done by Toby Keith. I might just have to make a video using some pics of my diecast collection and other pics I have of Dale and make a YouTube video sometime in the very near future! :D

Thanks Jim. Honestly this build as it sits was next on my dance card anyway. It just happens that it fits in this CBP as the flatbed in "Take it Easy" is open to interpretation. I suppose something from the 60's would fit the song better but this is what I had planned, and I'll roll with it. The girl (my Lord) in the flatbed Ford just happens to be a traditional hot rod girl. Who knew? :D
