    Car looks awesome! I should have swung by and checked it out when I was up there this past weekend.

    Just a quickie food for thought but have you ever thought about a hood top? My own personal tastes always call for a hood on a Model 40 but that's not to say yours doesn't look rad. In fact it looks like a East Coast hot rod which it is!!!

    extra cool!! I like the 2.5" chop. no need to go crazy on a 34.

    I think 33-34's were Henry's finest creation ever.

    i think it looks rad just the way it is. has nice lines and it looks badass without being too rediculous or over the top. It has that nostalgic feel just by looking at it. great find and great job. it looks 10x better than when you bought it.

    For me, the whole point of owning a 34 is the grill however, my origional 34 radiator started leaking pretty bad and my buddy Bill gave a 35 rad to save the rest of the driving season here in NJ...good thing my 32 shell was still hanging on the wall!! `E

    Looks good, but looks a couple inches high to me. I'd love to have an old full bodied car like that.
