Well after reading everyone's thoughts and outlooks on the question I think I am going to do what the CAR tells me and start modifying. I have a full set of orig Lincoln drums and backing plates that I will be putting to good use. I have the reversed eye spring in my stock pile and recently acquired a prewar Eddie Meyer intake from a pick my brother and I scored on in Tn. The Columbia I will have built by John Stukesberry out of TN also. He has done 4 of them for me in the past and is excellent with them. I thank everyone for all the comment and thoughts. I will post pics as I do the changes. I am a nazi for period correct and this car will look like it rolled out of 1940. I am going to drive it though for a couple months while I finish up the metal work on my 32 3wd. Than its on for the spring!!!!!
