So you are building a cop car?
Well it was either that or rub rat turds over the rust with a Skull themed iron-cross eyed monster wearing snakeskin boots drinkin a bottle of XXX drawn on the decklid. But I can't please you ALL the time...
Quit givin away my Mural ideas!!!after the "bomber themed" nose art of _____
brunette on top of_____ with somethin sinister painted over it like "Missing genetalia" Idea, I have decided I can't tell You anything.
and I want my goddamn Wizards and Unicorns shirt back, too, fucker.
NO WAY!! You'll have to pry it from my Kung Fu grip only AFTER storming my castle:
Rock on Paulie!!!
Sweet keep it coming!!
That coupe is as good as it gets ! Like that chopped sled in background too. Hope to see that thing in person hamb drags !
why are your toe nails painted ? ? ? [see axle pic].
Dreadybear, Your metalworking is an inspiration, Thanks. The jokes here are the best on the HAMB.
Keep up the good work.
You rock on you...silly.
They have to match my favorite dress...DUH
Wow, thanks man. Speachless on that one. I just weld and hit things with a hammer til it looks close... when you factor in all the cussing it becomes not all that inspirational.
ni ce progress looken great. you have in spired me to ge out there and start on my 32
this is a great thread, this is a inspiration to get me going on mine as well, keep up the good work
Hey Paul it was good hanging with you.... your well on your way brother.. I've been following this post for a bit now and your KICKING ASS!!! See you at the LSR..
It's Friday the 13th!! This is what Jason did to the last guy that didn't post more update photos!
I'm scared for you! It's been 10 days since you posted a picture!!
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...
The Slipknot deal is just creepy.............
Hahaha I'll give you ride but it will cost you 1 bulldog puppy.
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.

The car is lookin awesome. You are doin a hell of a job on it.
Lars you may get more response if you start a new thread. I have a 31 coupe at the shop but it may be different.
Flatred, I pm'd ya.
I've never been in a 32 or anything. I've been in (actually driven) 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!
We are in the same boat Paul, I sat in Buzzards coupe for about 3 mins at the hamb drags and thats it. Now im building one, I hope its fun to drive
oh hell, we gotta fix that.
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!
hell man I`ll give ya a ride in a 32 , could have used a driver last may at the races ?
Hey, I'll take you up on that!
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!!
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
Thank you sir. I promise I'll make an offering of burnt rubber every sunday
You're welcome anytime man.
I heard someone came by and gave my car a "makeover", serves me right for not goin to the shop in a while
