    They are well hidden. On the shelf or in a drawer. :D There are no front shocks. I don't really understand why, but they are not there.

    The handling on it is so nice. I haven't got around to pulling them off the shelf. It's on my to do list ;)

    Long weekend! I think I'll get those front friction shocks on finally. As you may know I have this 1937 up for sale. I noticed the for sale market is a funny place right around a presidential election. Seams like everyone is holding on to their money and wait and see the outcome. I come to this conclusion as this happened 8 years ago with another ride I had for sale. As soon as the election took place the car sold.

    Interesting video however I have to hope that you meant the blast was the drive to the show and back.
    The parking lot time is what I find the boring part. :)

    Funny! Around here in Florida owners at the car shows lounging around in beach chairs are called ( Lot Lizards) Your correct a blast to drive. Every now and then I'll pull in to a show with the top on, and after a couple of hours remove the top and get questions like, were did the truck go? Or, wasn't there a truck hear?

    Buzzed the neighborhood today with the 1937 Ford! The squeak you hear in the video is the drivers door not shut all the way. Hard to hold the camera, shift and drive at the same time!

    1700 miles on it and most people like the custom roadster. But I'm selling it to fund a couple more projects. Thinking about deleting the roadster part by welding it all up, and adding some aluminum Edlebrock heads to complete the look. Thoughts?

    Prepping for the new Edlebrock 74cc heads. I may fabricate a hood top as well out of aluminum or fiberglass.

    Louvered hood top might work, but not welding the roof back on, after the manhours.

    It may end up being the reason it sells...you never know.

    ...and 2 videos ago... at the show, some woman sure looked like she was staring down in the passenger door slot, looking to see if it had windows? Looked like it to me

    She was looking at the leather and commented on it after shooting the video. She Loved the aged weathered look.

    This is the first time I saw this thread, congratulations on an awesome project. I just wasted (far from wasted time) the better part of a morning reading the whole build and you've got some great ideas that would work well on any build. I don't normally read a thread word for word but that was good coverage of your build. Thanks for sharing it with us.

    Beautiful Ride! It's past my budget but if I could I would scoop this baby up. Can't wait to see your next ride.

    Thanks for sharing. Your truck shows great craftsmanship & creativity. I followed your build with all the twists and turns. It is one of the best looking fenderless trucks ever built. Normally I dont care for fat fender trucks without fenders but your truck and vision drew me in. Enjoyed it all the way. Can't wait to see what you build next & hope you share the build with us. All the best with your new enterprise.

    Thanks a lot. Right now I'm building a one off 1965 Mustang Fastback, I don't think its Hamb appropriate. Very cool though! Probably end up being a pro touring/ Trans Am inspired, with a coyote motor with 6 speed
