    I can't wait to see LW in person man! Don't be weirded out if I ask for a ride. Alot of people don't know this but I've only ridden in two Model A's ever!


    RAD! I remember seeing the premiere of Freddy vs. Jason at the Cinerama in Hollywood. I sat next to Slipknot, like the WHOLE band. In costume! It was surreal!

    There is nothing cool to report. I've been assembling backing plates and running to machine shops. I've also been spending LOADS of time with Carburetors. There will be some neato posts coming up though...
     
  16. The Slipknot deal is just creepy.............

  18. Hello
    Great thread, it have given me a lot of inspiration to start my project.
    I wonder if you can help me with some measurements, I have a 28 sport coupe I'm building to a Standard Coupe.
    I bought a pretty ruff roof and have some problems, its missing the cutters in the top where the wood should be. I have done this drawing, hope you understand my problems. I need to know the distance from the sunvisor to the edge in the back of the hole in roof; I also need to know the distance in the roof hole between the A-post and B-post. Great if you have some close up picks from the roof opening, I'm happy for any information.

    I've never been in a 32 or anything. I've been in (actually driven:D) Mr. Fords coupe and I had a crappy, ugly Model a pickup that broke the frame the second I got it. Other than that I've only been in fifties cars or newer. Crazy!

    I rode in the ''Beanie''s ''A'' Coupe (He runs Buckland Automotive over here) when I went to buy my chassis from him. It was noisy, smelly and bloody uncomfortable and I LOVED every Damn minute of it!

    Hey, I'll take you up on that!
     
  28. I'm really lovin' what I see you doing with the "A". Love the frame mods and all those holes. Great series of pictures too. That ought to be one hell of sweet ride when you get er done.
    May the trad rod Gods be with you!!

  29. I haven't checked this thread in a while...the car is looking great Paul! I need to swing by the shop one of these days and see it in person. Might inspire me to get my shit together and start another project. I miss my T :(
