    Very refreshing to see an A sedan not dragging the ground like the homemade body mounts broke after a poor channeling job!
    Looks like you are off to a real nice ride there, keep us updated with progress.

    Were you the winner of those pics Jimmy? I was watching those too for inspiration for my windshield.
     
  11. Yes, I won the bidding on these pics above. I was really hoping to get the channelled '31 roadster pics but missed out, that thing was channelled perfection!
     
  12. Awesome! Jimmy, sent you a PM

  14. That is the one, such a great proportioned roadster, I am always a sucker for anything channelled. The bumper is a little quirky and a little heavy visually. I have the parts to build a rolling chassis and I may build a similar roadster in the future.

    Looks like its got a set of those wacky whitewall spats too. I love the quirkiness of old hot rods even if its not the most visually appealing. Can you tell what the tail lights are from? Its kind of a blurry picture from behind. They kinda look like '41 chev but the bezels look too thin. JohnnyA

    I went through the entire thread over the past two days. The amount of inspiration found here can't be measured.

    We've been thrashing on this one, trying to get ready for warm weather. Strictly pre WWII parts.
