The Jalopy Journal
Saw this one on FB.... Glad to see the old drag strip having a cool show. It's hard to beat that location.
The car ain't bad either.... ;)
Those are '40 Deluxe trim rings..... Right?
The boat is ready for our next adventure. :D
Glad you got out for a ride and the weather is good.
Congrats on the magazine coverage! I've gotta go find a copy. That car is so cool.
I like the idea of the long chrome pipes, but like on the...
That's gonna be one cool island cruiser. Good progress and glad to see a Mopar drivetrain for a change.
Creative minds at work. I love it.
There is NO DOUBT that's the same car.
So is he gonna buy it back?
This is like a CSI investigation.
I'll go along with that.
Now tell me again what this stuff is? :p
Looks like a really nice roadster. It's hard to tell from the pictures, is it 2-tone blue?
I'm with 40grit on this one all the way. Without a full blown reincarnation of the original car, you've just painted it the wrong color for the...
Unbelievable.... It's amazing how many great cars are hiding in garages. Glad to see it's back on the road.
I'm sure you will un-fix that firewall.... Other than that, it looks like a great body.
Thanks to HRP for starting this thread and a very BIG thanks to Ryan for giving us a place to gather all this knowledge.
Happy Turkey Day.
My God.... That's the same car?
Damn Kevin... It's looking great. Glad to see the coupe coming together (without the SBC) :rolleyes:
You're stuff always turns out cool, this one...
Me too. Please guys, post lots of pictures. "Top 150 hand picked cars" in the country, all in one spot. Epic!
Kicking myself already....
What did you do on the steering arm? I bought the mono leafs for my old '58 truck, now the angle looks WAY off.
The springs brought it...
Doesn't even look like the same car. Not sure if that's good or bad?
Looks like a Bitchen firewall to me.
Really....? I like this configuration WAY better than the SBC street rod you were building. :rolleyes:
You gonna use that header/intake set-up...
Is the spring mounted in the stock model A crossmember? If so, the wheelbase is going to be WAY off.
If it's been dry, it will probably be ok to try the above mentioned steps before trying to crank. If there's a CHANCE that it was ever wet or in a...
Congrats on the Street Rodder coverage from Autorama '12. Well deserved.
Damn Kevin, you roll some neat stuff through there. The garage is cool as shit! I love '57 Fords. Might sound weird to some people, but these are...
The old chrome suspension on the car is great. What is that steering box?
I like this one.
Gotta be from my friend Kevin at Ooltewah Speed Shop.
"Don't worry, worryin's for PUSSY'S"
This thread kinda freaked me out there Kev. I don't get on here alot but saw the CNN footage from Ooltewah and figured I'd check on you, Penny and...
I had no idea they had all those cars at Coker Tire. Can you tour the museum or is it private? Looks like a great time.
Really good work on the wife's car. Mine wouldn't go for the 'Ole Lady thing... but that's you're deal. :D
