new owner made some unapproved mods...
How interesting, what a cool rod. The lil rod by "sloppy" is great as well.
The fender mod looks like the dragmaster Ryan posted a couple days ago.
I thought the same thing... kinda makes them look like model As...
Wish - hope it turns up without any changes... No sane person would screw that up, I hope
Would love to see full report & pics of sloppy’s car also
Feels like a vw rod /mg. Probably why these cars are so tricky to pull off as a custom or sport rod.
Very clean, cohesive and thought out though. I don’t think it feels to stubby . The shrunk down grill and head light placement is mostly what messes with me.
Cool car either way you slice it
You didn’t by any chance keep that cool narrows truck shell, did ya. I see that there is a shell with vertical bars now, I hope that he didn’t cut the originals out...... I’m looking for one.....
Funny I just bought one of those
he cut it up... but I had made my own teeth with 2 rolls of 5/16" brake line...
I wonder if that was the inspiration for this one ?
