    Wicked! How many does it make now? I kinda picture your garage as kind of a Valhalla for gassers.

    Hot Rods Ta Hell

    Very nice. Love the color and stance!
    One thing; whoever lettered it did the 'speed lines' backwards on the Gone Postal lettering. Used to emphasize motion, they should flow directional (run front to back) like flames or scallops. (unless they're vinyl and were applied on the wrong sides of the car?).

  6. That's an awesome car, what does your finished collection consist of? Enough to field your own class:) I see you have some projects listed for sale.

  9. 100% better with those spoked wheels on the front!!
  10. Looks like the letters are getting whip lash to me... I think that's what they were going for.
  11. I love it. It's wicked ugly cool as hell.:D Her sister must be a 41 and hot as hell.
  12. I think the graphic artist was using the speed lines as anti-speed lines as a metaphorical reference to the postal office which as we know is slow and never on time, and the restraint a post man feels right before he has "gone postal".
    @modelkitbasher if you reverse those graphics I am pretty damn sure it will take a tenth off your elapsed time.

  13. Damn you got some serious dream cars. Good for you. The 392 hemi with those M/T valve covers I barely see is another insanely kick-ass car. Are they magnesium valve covers??? I used to have a set. One thing I wish I never sold.
  14. I love the paint on the 40! Do you have a pic of the truck?
  15. what kind of times do those cars turn?

    I watched the "Going Postal" car go together through the years. I never thought that one of the Hack Brothers would sell their Willys. I did some work on Chuck's "Suicide Ride" a few years ago. It has a lot of local history.
