    Great build. I would like to build another. I miss the one I had, but the wife didn't like the wind in here face. Still should have kept it. 1930 Chevy parts, 292 Chevy six, Nissan rear, and so on. Gary 30-SIDE.jpg 30-TAIL.jpg

    We made the cockpit opening too large, I'm 6'2", but it was comfortable. I like your staggered seating better. The little car was a blast to drive. Next one will have an old time drivetrain. Hope I didn't high jack your post. Awesome car and thanks for posting. Gary
