    I THINK my coupe qualifies for this thread. It's banger powered, I feel like the colors fit the era, and the stance. What do you guys think? Also the splash aprons are going back on.

    Love the car Shooter54! I would keep the splash aprons off, but that's just me. Either way, it's very cool.

    Thanks guys! It's coming along pretty well. Still needs some striping and interior work.

    Shooter, i have always liked your coupe, the ride height is perfect. Splash aprons are one of those personal preferance style pieces...i like them.

    "Car no. 260 is another famous car. One meet it was entered as the Spalding Brothers entry. Another time by just Bill Spalding. It was actually built by Johnny Hartman and is the famous Wayne track roadster. It had a Chevy 6-banger in it. It ran 127.65 mph."

    I think it is clearly a reflection of a late 30's - 40's lakes car from what is pictured. I am pretty sure it has a SBC but I think the jist of his post is how it appears and not how it sounds or runs.

    Yeah it has a SBC and an automatic I think. Visually the only thing that screams out of place to me is the Buick Finned brakes.

    Again,.. no offense,... But even the title if the thread is "Re: 1940's period correct hot rods",.... There was another thread that was 1950's period correct hot rods,... This car would be more correct for that thread,... but again not totally correct. Don't get me wrong,.. I like the car and Faith,.. And it has the basic appearance of a 50's hot rod. But not 1940's. Again this is my opinion.

    Harms way nailed it, the 1940's is too early for that car. That car is more correct for the 1960's due to the brakes.
     
  23. Sometimes it's the little details that date a car. I can see why it was thrown out there, just looking at the picture it would take a pretty well versed hot rodder to pic out those little details from a photo.

    Yeah...HW has clearly stated what I think this thread is about too and what it reflects in past photos posted. I'd hate to see it wander off in another direction.

    Faith's roadster is beautiful and all but doesn't fit with the thread as I see it too. Do a little more research on her roadster and I think you'll understand. Again, this is not to bash her ride but put it into context of this thread. There are proper current day examples and more vintage examples that I'd like to see continue on this post.
