I drove it as a taildragger for a year, but I always felt like an imposter driving somebody else's car. The car registered its opinion by throwing off the left skirt and running over it, so I took them off, raised the rear a few inches, and put big tires back on. It looked like this when I sold it in '06: It changed hands twice, and the current owner "fixed it up" to look like this: Selling a car that you care about is a crapshoot. I know this car well it is up here in Idaho, I see it every weekend, the guy is really nice but I think he ruined the car. The car when it first showed up was just fantastic and i drooled every day I saw it before they redid it to its current condition.
