    From our local AACA show. I thought they didn't come with fenders, had hopped-up flatties or Hemis and bigs and littles?!

    Pretty cool with the dual quad T-Bird engine:

  2. LOL, Yeah I like seeing the hotrods & 'souped' up '32s but it's refreshing to also see some of them as they came from Henry. I'd take the '57 anytime of day too. Great pics, thanks for sharing.

    that 57 Ford is BOSS!!!!!
     
  4. Thanks for the pic,s. Vintage car shows really are a must for any guy just getting started in the HotRod hobby. Kind of to get the idea what their project car looked like in the flesh when it was original. Does this statement make sense :confused:

    Nice pictures to show the contrast. Now tell me about the fire extinguishers.

    I always spend a few extra minutes looking at original cars, esp. the ones you posted. I'd have to spend a couple days looking at that 57.

    That's an AACA quirk--they require EVERY vehicle at one of their shows to have a fire extinguisher...

    I thought it was because FORDs catch on fire more often.

    Nice photos. It's refreshing to see a stock 32 once in a while just to remember what they did/do look like. That black 57 spins my wheels for some reason. There has been a black 57 Ford tudor for sale locally for a while that while not having the stuff that one does is a hell of a nice ride that looks quite similar.

    Where'd they get that thing that holds the tire above the rear bumper? Speedway?

    ;)

    :D

    Seeing 2 at once is a sight to see indeed.
