    I know your cars always turn out great, so I'm not doubting you.... but why the extra 5" in the wheelbase?

    I'm pretty sure a longer wheelbase will give him a better ride.

    Yea BIG-JIM, I do think it will help the ride plus with the chop and full hood I think it will make it look longer and lower.. Thanks for the other comments too...

    Bitchin! I'd really like to leave the fenders off of mine, but they are in such good shape, it's hard not too. I'm with you on the 28-9 A's. Looking at buying another 28 sedan local.
