  5. I would hate to ruin the back of the cab. That would make a unique Hotrod,but I would try to maintain the integrity of the original car. DON"T CUT IT UP!

    Would make one hell of an aquarium.... Fill it up with water and tropical fish......
     
  21. Don't chop it. Absolutely make it a Hot Rod, but no chop. It has a sort of 'Rat fink cartoon' proportion that makes it super cool

    HELL NO!!!!!!!!!! That is a Woods electric coupe body on a Stanley Steamer chassis, some might say it was an early Hot Rod.

    I believe the owner is a HAMB member, there are a lot of shots of the car on the web, it was once part of the Barney Pollard collection in Detroit.

    I agree with my brother HAMBers. It's a gem and butchering it would be a crime against the past. Keep the top as is. If you need inspiration check out the "T" sedan John Buttera built --- that is pure class. Yours, whatever it is, has the uniqueness of a time long gone, that will never be again, that hangs on in the very lines. It's like the coach the Royalty ride in to their coronation --- like a sculpture by one of the masters. Need I say more? Resto-rodded it would be marvelous dahling. Simply mahhhvelous. Butchered up, it would be "What the f--- you do that for?

    Another view. And i vote NO. It's got neat funky proportions.
