    Looks great! Have you thought about not chopping it? Because I think it looks great as is.

    I've thought about it. I'm definitely gonna get it driving before I chop it but I'm pretty sure as of now that its gonna get 4 inches out of it. Just a little too tall for me.

    NICE MODEL A!!! WANNA SELL IT?




    Sitting in san jose with Mom, Dad and Jess looking at the posts. Man, we've done a lot of work. I think i might need to drive it for a month right after we finish it just to make sure everything is in proper working order. Good job on taking the time to post updates when the big things come together and thanks to everyone that posted encouraging comments. It's a lot of work but gonna be worth it. Good job Nate.

    Nice project looks like you guys are very close to starting up the engine, all the electrical is there, fuel lines, no exhaust yet but good progress. Cant wait to post my progress soon.

    Looks great! Alot of progress since I saw it. Love the full hood but I say no chop. I know not chopping it takes some restraint, but it is refreshing to see an unchopped coupe. 6.00 and 7.50 tires right?

    Looks pretty good for two guys that don't know how to build a Hot Rod doing the work. I add my vote for no chop it looks right as it sits.

  25. wow, great work. i usually do not like channeled cars but this one is an exception. i think its the stock roof, the full hood, and the 32 grille shell that tickles my pickle on this one.:cool:
