  3. Okay, now I'm just showing off.. :p But I wanted to show the finished(?) car now on the road - first drive in two years this weekend! Running boards glued and mounted, garnishes and wind wings in, signal switch wired and operational and trunk rubber glued and lid adjusted!

    Last image I promise! :)

    Not mine, but I grew up drooling over this '47 that belonged to a neighbor/father of a classmate. It's a genuine old '60s hot rod with a 327 lashed to the original three-speed and a tuck-and-roll interior. It just got back on the road after about a 15-year hiatus. I'm very glad to see it still in service.

    Looks really nice Roadfarmer. The subtle improvements look great. Nicely contrasting garage mate for the 55.

  13. They are the same 6.0s that were on it when I bought it. I'll probably run some 6.50s in the rear when the car needs new tires someday. Not sure if I'd run black or white walls the second time around.

    Cool I'm running a 27 inch tall tire all around so a little shorter than yours, though I think it needs a taller tire in back to get that nose pointing down a little better. Hope your having a blast with it!
