    I plan to drive it with the gas pedal. i am building a pretty wicked BBC, a th400 and it has a 4.11 posi. I wanted some protection because it sits so low (for me and the gas tank). It will definitely see some friday night track time and also be driven on the streets of Phoenix and I havent figured out which one is more dangerous.

    I've got parts of a 30 tudor, that was converted into a tractor, that I'm trying to make into something. Right now I'm trying to work around the missing parts, and collecting more parts. I've got several cameras, but not one of them work, so I don't have anything to show you for the time being.

    I just got this a few weeks ago. Gathering parts and some ideas. This will be on 32 rails ,unchopped and I am thinking as-is, not stripping the original paint and patina.

    Building a '28 Model A High Boy Roadster Pickup. Started with a A&F fiberglass body--but the cowl is junk so I'm using a real Cowl welded to a new subframe from brookville. Then I'll use the fiberglass doors and the rear of the body. Shortened up a repop steel Model A bed to 48". Running a '52 Mec. engine with a 4 speed (out of mid 80's Fords were 4the is overdrive and shifter sits on top of trans.) hooked to a '46-'48 Truck open center section banjo rearend. Don't have any photos right now but hope to post a few later when the weather warms up.

    That looks like a MUCH better start than the other body. Good going Jay!

    Here's what mine looked like a week ago when it was raining. I need to find another big block Chrysler to stuff back in her. I may run fenders on it this time around, I don't know.

    Does the one in my mind's eye count? I build it up and tear it down all day long and dream about Her every night.

    I've been driving this '31 coupe for 3 years; it's been painted and upholstered for two, but they're never really done, are they?

    The sedan belongs to my son; he just recently got it on the road. It's a '31 Murray body town sedan with the sun visor added. Since the pic it's been flamed in green. Still needs interior and front door glass.

    came across a rust free 29 tudor been disasambled for a full original resto, everything new or rebuilt. Funny thing, It ain't going back together that way. I should have a lot a lot of parts to unload when I get finished with it.
