I love this little documentary about Ben Thomas, an Australian who builds and rebuilds vintage hot rods, specializing in Fords. Yes, of course, that is a '32 Ford Roadster behind him, first of the V8s and a classic rod. But this is Oz, so it's right hand drive. Can't think of another film about hot rods that's as quiet, calm, and beautifully made as this one. http://www.vmotorsport.com.au/?p=900
