    How interesting, what a cool rod. The lil rod by "sloppy" is great as well.

    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.....
