Hes going the distance...hes going for speed...
My kind of A!
WHEN you send photos of your new shop, make sure your car is in the shot so the BOSS won't tell you it fits better in the Garage Journal.
Going to be one wicked A.

Man! @Von Hartmann you gotta at least show the rear bars. I see them peaking out of that last pic. I can't wait to see what's next for this car. It's one HAMB story I need to see completed.
Sure wish I had a "spare injected motor"!! Nice profile!!!
Hey Von Hartmann, haven't heard a peep from you since November, 2016... What's been happening with your coupe?
I second that
I don't get a chance to post here ever, but man i just had to say WOW you have some skills man. Looks like you have a pretty cool ass dad too. Your skills remind me of a guy on chop cult (boomboomthump) he also likes to make hand fabbed parts look cast. Question: If you were going to "build" your first hotrod, name me some tools you couldnt live without?
Check out his other thread, I believe he’s playing with a ‘57 drag car and mentioned using this coupes engine in it. Makes me wonder what he will stuff in this one? Couple real cool machines in competent hands!
This is all true, but let's hear Von Hartmann's plans on this awesome coupe! Seriously, with the work done so far, how can he NOT strive to finish her?
Any news on this car?
,...Ryan opened up his own shop in Rockford, that's probly his priority rite now...
Still, he only needs to take a few minutes and post some updates... This coupe is turning out way too cool to let this build be at idle.
Check out Wingnuts roadster he's building right now it's bitchen as well and craftsmanship is outstanding
Is there a link for the roadster
This is the only one I found enloe.
The OP (Ryan) and I talked for a little over an hour today and we chatted about the car and such. He's a busy dude with some neat things going on and a lot of knowledge.
The car is stalled out, obviously... priorities and such.
Went out to Byron to visit Ryan (and drop off my coupe to him) and I spent a moment with the Freakin' A. It's still a bad ass hot rod. It's currently for sale, too.
Like the bobbed rear fenders, were they cut in back , or rolled forward and the running board sections cut? Bob
Great to see these photos of this BAD ASS coupe! Thanks for the opportunity Brent! Looks like you're coupe is going the same way - keep us posted on your build as well!!
He cut these and added a new lip.
Yeah, this car's chassis is an inspiration for mine. I didn't get to pour over the car all that much the day I was around it but it was good to see it, in person.
I'll post my build as it goes along, I've gotten pretty far on it and have tons of pics, I just haven't taken the time to do a proper HAMB thread. If you like this car or Maratta's Missile (the Rake), mine should be a fun one to follow.
Thanks, they turned out really nice. Bob
