    It's a restoration project--but not really--I'm sure you guys will find plenty to criticize in this flash slideshow, but there are lots of pics and diagrams I think you'll like . . .

    Wow is an understatment. I can only hope that my Dubble A comes out looking that nice. That is detail at its finest.

    If you don't mind being criticized for incredible detail and craftsmanship...then yea, you suck:)

    Awesome car
     
  6. That's some nice work!

    Where in Missouri do they speak that weird, moon-man language and measuring system?

    Holy Shit! Stock appearing on the outside, but sooooo much more underneath! Most of us would just see it as a nice restoration and not look into it more....

    If you did some of that work, you should be proud.

    What engine is that?

    I did a half-assed search, notpete, before posting; if this post is redundant, delete it. It was posted on MetaFilter today . . .

    Yeah, there was a video of it driving around. It is really fast. I thought someone said it had a English Ford rally car motor in it. I'll try to find that post.
     
  16. Very impressive build!

    The thing in the trunk looks to be a fuel cooler. Not sure though.

    I don't think so, we may be a bunch of neanderthals, but most of us appreciate UNREAL craftsmanship!

    Wow.

    This shop is what would happen if Gerald Wingrove specialized in full scale cars.

    Wow.
     
  27. seeing it from start to finish makes me value it way more then seeing the finished project first. thats and insane amount of work.

    Very very nice work. What brand of pedals are those? They fit under the cowl so nice.
     
  30. I remember it from at least one older thread. The wheels and rear wheelwell mini-tubs are particularly neat.
