    I'd miss that one too! Like all of us I wish I could get a few of mine back.

    I was sure this was a period picture until I saw the trash can. I like the car and the house, very well done.

    That’s what they make photo shop for.
    29 A roadsters are my favorites, the coach line on the cowl is what makes them old school. When they blended the cowl in it took away the old school look.

    Just to get the feel is enough, the photo doesn't need to be counterfeit.

    First two photos are from 1954.
    It was in a barn from 1955 until last year. Now it's in my garage. Build will start soon.
    Third photo was taken after we pulled it out of the barn.

    It will be built as a late '40s-early '50s hot rod as originally intended. Keith at Rexrods just built a flathead for it. I'm planning a Blog to document the history and build. I'll post it when I put something together.

    A friend of my dad's purchased it in 1954, so I've known about the car my whole life.

    Cool car above. What are the two can-shaped things above the drag link?

    How old was he when he built that? He looks young and that car is pretty much done. How old was he compared to Isky?
