    And, it's done. Tomorrow Trent Sherrill is going to take some pictures of it. After that I get to drive it around and not worry so much about scratching it. IMG_0455 2.jpg

    What a fantastic & well thought out build! Great display of skills and nice looking ride. Do you have more pics or the car to share after paint?

    "Tucker 53 Speedster" ;). What a great vision and execution of a build. Looking at the build pix @ 1st I didn't know where you were headed. The Corvair power plant was something that totally threw me off. My thought is how is the engine gonna stay cool as the Vair's hood was vented in order to remove the hot air out of the bay?
    Looks like its doing just fine. Great work and truly unique craftsmanship and ingenuity. :).

    I'd been hearing about this thing from Lucky1974 ever since moving back to MN. At first I had the same thoughts as many on here, but your execution is incredible. Well done Noah.

    You just made my 6am morning coffee taste even better. It's refreshing to see a completely new take whilst still not letting go, that will no doubt inspire others.

    Of the almost 12,000 cars at BTT50's yours is the one I tell people about! Out of 12,000 cars you came up with something original, different, and very well built. Hats off to you and your creativity. Brian

    Super proud to have you as a friend and be next to this build. I know what you sacrificed to build it on a shoe string budget. It turned out awesome. You were smart to wait until the end to start the posts! Hahaha

    Maybe I didn't read it, but you should mention EVERYTHING on this build was done by you. THAT'S what is even better!
