Saw you cruising today, my 8yo son says “hey Dad that’s a hot rod!” ;)
I really like the fact you kept the roof white.. this truck is really nice and the story behind it makes it that much better. Great job!
@roadster1923 - is this one of your projects? Looks to be a well grafted subframe on a Chevy tophat frame if I’m not mistaken, but I’m mainly...
Working on saddles and such I’ve always referred to them as Chicago screws, that might be another search term you could use. I’d have never...

Very nice work
