    Birdog that T is amazing, any current pictures? Does it still have the OHV banger in it? I'd love to hear more about that car.

    I'd like to see more of both of them. I've never seen a T in the day with those wheels.

    Only other phot I have I'd with my grandma standing by it. Sadly all his pics of his hotrod were destroyed in a flood except a few. He had multiple chopped 32-34 coupes. He worked at a wrecking yard so he got his hands on a lot of old cars lol. I will find a pic of it now but it's just the body and a few other parts. The drive train was eventually sold off but he hung the body up in the rafters tell last year when we pulled it down for my brother to build.

    That is a beautiful car just like it was. Oh well like I've said for years. "If you think your car is finished sell it to someone else."

    The Hallock roadster looks good fenderless as it is today, but the original look with the caddy grill is outstanding. Very subtle yet changed just enough to stand out in a crowd. (JMHO)
     
  28. Thanks guys. Does anyone know what the original color was?
