    Whoa whoa whoaaa. Tbird told me about your car, at Bville, and I'm just checking it out now. A few things come to mind...

    First, that frame is sexy. Holy cow, what a great platform for your T. Second, that firewall is PERFECT. Nice work on that.

    Also, the steering arm is a nice touch, you can't even tell it's modded, it looks like it's supposed to be that way from the factory.

    Next, the seat back - I am stealing that idea, for sure. Get some more pics of that up, if possible.

    You did a bang-up job on the body. From the spring clearance mods to the deck lid... man, I'm inspired.

    I have no clue how in the hell I missed this build, especially with the time I spend on this site.

    Nice work, man. I'm a fan. Put a pic or two in the chopped and leaned thread when your finished.

    Dude, you didn't give those two scruffy bums any change did you? I heard they were spitshining hot rods at the gate for half smoked cigarettes and ghetto shrimp...;)

    Some how I missed this thread. Just read the whole thing start untill today. Love it!! This is just the way I think of a young guy building a rod in the late 30s- late 40s useging what is available with a lot of imagination and hard work! Would love to see a video of some laps at Latimore.

    Great job, Ted

  21. In France im sure that a good supply of 26-27 T roadsters are not to be found and i like the look of where he is going with it, glass or not !! The photo has relevance due to the early Chev motor , and those 29 wheels look killer. I would very much like to see it when its done. And i have a 26 T!! , please dont be a steel snob. JW.

    I am so glad I found this thread. I've been thinking about building a 235 powered 27 roadster on a 31 Chevrolet frame I have and up until now I hadn't really found much in the way of guidance. Your car is incredible, and this thread will be a great resource if and when I ever get started on my car.
