Default Sinister



Go crazy. You can paint it black, add the meanest flames ever taped, slam it to the ground, throw on some huge meats, poke a blower through the hood, etc... It doesn't matter. NOTHING is as sinister as an early roadster built by a guy with the eviles...

Raw what else can I say.

You could spend a day just figureing out what to say about it but as in all perfect builds less is more.

A pic or two will suffice, if you can't sit in it at speed and then notice a puddle when you remove yourself.

This is one of my all time favorite cars I have seen here on the HAMB and I don't think any one word could describe this car more than "Sinister" you nailed it to a "T"

I can just picture some young kid cruising through town in the 30's in that thing, and heads turning everywhere he goes.

Makes you want to throw out anything you've ever learned about building a "mean" looking car. That is one bad looking T!

I want to see more of it: interior, engine bay, etc...

It is sinister, classically so. It's amazing to have such a mean looking car without all that typical stuff, like flames and blowers and nonsense.

That car defines the era. That's one bad ride.
