The Jalopy Journal
Yes, yes, YES!!!
So we get back to Bandit who pointed out this is the OP's first post in 8 years. 'Soon' may be a very long time. I know it was when my father said...
Well, this is a traditional hot rod site.;)
Rocky Mountain oysters.
Believe you can get flame stickers for PT Cruisers.
You left out the steamroller.
In the street rod world, I would double that number. Racing, even longer.
I set up the chassis with just the main leaf. That will be similar to the finished, fully loaded car sitting on the springs. All suspension...
You need a burette and some perspex/lexan etc. sheet.
Look up cc'ing combustion chambers on youtube, I'll bet there are plenty of how to's.
I'm thinking around 100cc.
What are you aiming for?
When the street rod boom started in the early 70's it was a lot easier to build with the by then common 350/350 combo.
I assume you are building a coupe? In which case, they all have 5 windows;)
(A Tudor sedan also has 5 windows.)
Enjoy the process.
You say that...and I agree. But some people just hate old cars. A fellow living a bit over an hour away from me was building a 'street rod'...
I was making a joke about going to the Ford parts counter.:rolleyes:
^It's also channeled, which doesn't help.
The OP posted in 2009 and hasn't been here since 2011;)
So you tried at the parts counter?:eek:
I like it, but if given a choice between it and another built exactly the same with a normal windshield, I'd take the normal version.
Please explain the logic behind this.
Could I make a potato shaped ball of tinfoil and call it a 34 Ford? Because it's my creation? I suppose I...
I'm glad you mentioned that...now.:rolleyes:
I agree with F-one as well. Unless you're into looks, mill the factory heads.
The only things that look somewhat 34 Ford are the cowl sides and door tops. The whole thing is a fabrication from the builder's mind...
Except it's a T body and 28/9 rad shell.
^ And I'm concerned they can't find pants that fit. Either that or their mums can't sew.:eek:
I like the ring spanner idea.
Don't know how universal this is, but 4 cylinder Model B had red ones.
I wonder what happened?
Can't help on the question, but I give you extra points for spelling piques correctly. :)
Something tells me you won't have to worry about choosing between quality levels of off-the-shelf ready made headliners for that car.;)
I just wish some of you guys would know the difference between numbers and letters that are actually stamped and ones that are cast. Like on these...
Separate names with a comma.
