    Refined answer ( quick coffee stop ) I'm work traveling at the moment and will refine when I have more time later.

    Love the Cannarozzi Roadster! Forgot how perfect it turned out. Ryan what size front tires are those?
  18. I have never been much of a custom guy so I would go with two race cars

    (1) My 53 Chevrolet-

    (2) My Tudor soon to be period correct late 50's early 60's stock car

    This but more sophisticated, and with a 261 Chev 6

    (3) A clone of one of my Father's Late Models-

    (4) A tow truck, A 1960 suburban would be the Cat's Ass!

    42˚18'N 83˚09'W

    Only 4???
    That would be like being 21 years old in a women's prison with a fist full of pardons being told you can only have 4!!! I'm well over the limit and I still lust for more...

    100_5900.JPG I am more inclined to have 20-40 in a warehouse so I can drive whatever suits my fancy at that particular moment. And then sell some every now and then, so I can pursue and buy more. Oh wait! That is pretty much how it is now!

    How about Showtime for my hotrod?
    How about the Royal Tahitian for my custom?
    How about the 56 Cameo for my shop truck? I will be VERY careful.
    How about the HotRod 50 Olds for my easy to get along with race car? 50 Olds 88 new pics 014.jpg

    If I could have a custom it would be a mildly modified 53/54 Chevy Bel Air hardtop. I've got the Hot Rods covered with 5 running deuces one of which is my (shop truck ?) a 32 Ford Highboy PU. I really have no interest in race cars as I get my race fix driving my 2014 Corvette until some day when I get caught and fined for exhibition of speed. Local cops say I'm to old for all these toys?

  28. Custom: Tail-dragger like Jesus Valencia's Chevy:
    Hot rod: Black '32 5w, like the Busby coupe, but Hemi-powered.

  29. I like the 4 car idea, but for now I'm very happy driving my one rod. Maintenance on one driver keeps me busy.
