What's the wheelbase, Mike?
@DE SOTO 's sport coupe is pretty neat. Not sure he's still around here.

Coupes have a roof, yes.
Sport coupes (above) have stationary A pillars (what holds up and surrounds the windshield). This is a...
@Rob Stumpf what style/era do you like? Do you picture it with fenders or fenderless? Do you like tire-smoking power or something a bit more...
I put a reinforcement piece on my firewall as well as some rods tying the pedal mount to my dash bar.
Juice fronts, converted to self-adjusting by @Bass and Pontiac drum rears, with later backing plates, again for self-adjusters.
60-62 Chevy truck...
Haha, I just realized that my list didn't even include the engine.
I spent an hour, here and there, looking at SBC header options and came across this. Well, actually, I flipped this image. I saw it and realized...
In situations like these, something has to give.
Remove what's not "gasser" and you'll have a lot more options.
This may be one of the coolest roadster I've seen on a while. It's way before it's time. That style would fit right in, now.
@Ryan, what I just learned about the one I posted is that if you're in messages you'll end up clicking on it instead of sending the message.
How do you view the site, through an app?
For me the little envelope is red when there's a new message and gray when there's nothing new to see.
I have a running joke with a pal of mine that there are only a few pieces of Model A left in my Model A, which is actually pretty true. There's...
This one swirls around and "pops".
Good news is, to capture it I refreshed 20 or so times to catch it right.
@Parkman, that gauge is from Fabcraft. You may be able to rent it from them.
The factory V8, size, and styling helped, as we all know.
But after, with all the reproductions, what was it? Was it the rarity of finding...
@porknbeaner in the 60s, there were 2.5" outlet ram horns. With a 45⁰ bend I could probably just clear the steering box but I'd likely boil it,...
I mocked the vintage Hedman and it ended up where I could find two bolt holes to line up so that I could hang the header with the outlet in the...
I've never shared in this thread because I'm nowhere near as knowledgeable as some of the posters, here. But, I have used a lot of the info...
Up top, thanks.
What battery are you running, now?
I don't want to go outside, like that.
I always pictured running an exhaust down, under and out the sides, like this:
I'm going to...
That was what I intended to do. Even though it would allow me to drop a neat exhaust tube right were I want it, the 265 manifolds are just too...
Here are three others that I kept for my car:
Black Superior 500.
Ansen or Covico (never sure what it actually was) "Milner" wheel....
Here's one. At one point I considered retapering this wheel and painting it black/white to match my coupe. I have the original chrome...
Radius rods donated to make rear lower shock mounts.

The 3/4 size had me curious, so I had to look it up.
@Malcolm you're right - it's 26/27 roadster tiny. Maybe smaller?
Here are screenshots from...
I have a Suzuki one sitting on the shop floor in a box. Worked fined, I upgraded.
I'll donate it to the project if you want @Tim .
It looks like there's a lot of life left in that paint. I'd probably detail it inside and out and under and then polish it to the best of my...
