    That is a super nice looking, and detailed T Roadster...but I find it a little "era" confusing.

    The Model A wheels suggest a 20s/30s Gow Job, but the paint is definitely a 30s/40s track roadster look...and the interior is a little too modern:( I think some 16 inchers (wide 5s, '35 wires, '40 rims) would tie things in a little better...but what do I know? I'm an idiot;):p

    Yes, I stand corrected. Now that I look at the wheels, they appear to have Model T 9" hubs, as opposed to the 28/29 Model A 10-1/2" hubs;)

    Body is dramatically stretched , appears to be 16" -18". Proportions still look good.

    WOW, I didn't notice that body extension between the cowl and door. That's a great example of "design execution" of a major body modification that flows, rather than stands out.:)

    Maybe a dumb question since I don't know the car but the hood says "Special-T" and not "Simple T", is that the name? Might help with searches on the internet.

    Great to see you posting Jim. The flathead electronic ignition conversion you helped me set up a bunch of years ago is still cranking along. All the best.
