    I took a look at the shoebox and it was verry nice.

  8. the vonstripers -

    Thanks for the links.

    That's some great craftsmanship & metal-shaping talent shown on "the shoum roadster" ... but it appears (at least to me) that the proportions are way off on the rear quarters / wheel wells ...

    ... was this done intentionally?

    Fantastic work, France has some hardcore hot rodders! That pickup is amazing.

    all the body is handmade, it's not a perfect reproduction but I think (I hope:D ) that I'm near the true.....

    What do you find "strange" in my 1/4 panel exactly?????


    I hope you understand me, I don't speak english very well:(:(

    Your English is better than our French!

    The area in front of the rear wheel looks too long. I only noticed it from the side view so it is not that big of a deal. . Nice work!

    I fell like a real cop-out now, using a 'glass body, simply because I couldn't find a tin roadster shell. :(

    Feeble excuse.

    The French guy simply made his, from flat steel sheet:

    or maybe this will work:

    It doesn't look wrong to me.

    How long did it take to build the body?

    Nice job . But there s a point I disagree .
    There are nice cars in France . Citroen C4 , B14 .
    I like Model T A B , this is not the pb .
    Why not build a French hot rod , with a french car ?
    I would be more funny than another 32 or 28 ..

    Citroen B14 :
    As nice as a model A according to me :
