    Bantam roadster, built to look like a factory V8-60 job. Even had custom cast heads and firewall tag with the engine in the specs.

    While there's nothing wrong with going in the dirrection... NOT ALL AUSTIN BANTAM RODS NEED TO BE OVER THE TOP AND/OR GASSERS...

    Here's a true hot rod roadster rocking a 1933 chevrolet 6... I'd love to see more pictures of this one too!
