    Well I don't post much anymore, alot of what I am doing is not 100% hamb appropriate. And neither is this, however some of you may like it sooooo.

    Okay there was some interest in this car, which made it into another thread over on dogfight. So here's the story. One of my friends/customers took his model a to Pinkies in Colorado to have a frame built. When he was dropping it off he saw this T at their shop. It was for sale as a roller/body. Pinkies had put a blown hemi in it and had shown it a few times (I beilieve) as a project, so some of you may have seen it around.

    Tom (the owner) got introduced to me after he bought the car and brought it back to California. Tom had the idea for the edsel grrille and he knew he wanted to have the six in it. Beyond that he was pretty open but wanted something different. I was instantly excited about it and quickly starting talking blowers and efi of course. Because I think everything should have boost! Tom is a great customer and really let me just run with the car at that point, so what you see is a semi "traditional" style with some of my own personal taste thrown in.

    I ended up stretching the frame to make room for the six, built the custom grille/radiator surround. Pretty much everything visible was built in house buy me and my guy Nick.

    The manifold is my own design. Its a large open plenum style with a removable lid. The lid was made removable to be able to make changes inside the plenum if ever needed and also so I could send it out to have some script cnc'd into it once it was done. The injectors are hidden into little pods with a stainless fuel rail built to look more like mechanical injection. All the wiring is run through what looks to be a brace so very few people will ever realize its efi.

    We also built the gas tank/ floor, pedals, shifter, column, blah blah blah.

    Hi Eddie...........Kool,KOOL. I love your out of the box creativity and exceptional quality. When you showed me the photo of the grille at Autorama I wondered what the rest of the car might look like. Glad you found a customer that gives you the reins. You have a lot of talent and as I age I will be looking to see more of your great fabrication work.

    Hey Duane, hope your doing good. I won't be at the swap meet too far behind in the shop but sell lots of stuff!

    Hi Jerry, thanks for the compliments. My stuff is always hit and miss on the hamb but I haven't pissed anyone off lately so I thought I'd rub some people wrong over here. Keep me in mind when you come up this way.

    I think it's great! Most people drill hole in it because it looks cool but you're actually losing weight with as many as you've drilled! I dig it for sure! The grill shell looks good too.

    Do you ever have any holes left over?
    Nice work, i love creativity. I see the metalshaping that is overshadowed by the holeishness, there really is a lot of nice work in there and i appreciate it.
