    Want to mock up a '30 cowl, one of my funky dashes...
    tilted posts, truncated and capped tudor doors,
    capped the front 12" of the '27 Buick 5 pass. cpe. [no roof] quarters,
    home made subfloor, '30- '31 grill shell, a bozo made aluminum hoodtop,
    on a '29 chebby frame with 3" of model A frame horns welded on the front...
    I think it will make a great altered or a vintage drag car...
    .
    Need a big chunk of "round to it" …

    They sure do.
    This one lived in my head for a very long time until the starting pieces were located in 2010.

    I started building, doing pretty much everything myself.

    Spring will see it on the road finally :cool:

    Before I was into '30s cars, late '70s, I stumbled onto a dual cowl vent "cut down" in a power line, it had a pair of plyers laying across the front edge... they had a bolt setting on them... the bolt rusted a hole "through" the plyers...
    I brought them home... gave them away a few years later... ???
    … go rustyl go !
