    These pics are a couple yrs old but thought I would share in case any other dummies like me out there. My model A I took out 3 inch and drove for a yr, than decided to cut it up again to take out another 1 1/2...

    They say that if your only tool is a hammer, then everything looks like a nail. I guess if your only tool is a saw...

    Actually, I like all three renditions of the car, in the order presented.

    Yes,.......back in the 90's I chopped my 30 Model A coupe 4 inches. A couple months later I went to the Street Rod Nationals North and saw a countless number of coupes that were chopped more than mine. Needless to say,... I went home and the next day the old girl lost another 2 inches off the top :)

    I tried a stock model a box at first... it was horrible, but it was not a rebuilt box so I'm not sure how a good one would work. Its actually a F1 box that I cut and welded the model a shaft and wheel to. At the time I was on a kick to keep as many original parts that came with the car. I will probably going to change it at some point because that model a wheel is kind of big in that small chopped and channeled cab.
