    That front fender style is very similar to another coupe shared in one of these 2 Fender Threads...

    If you are going to fender just one axle, the front is the better choice, especially if you're driving a roadster. On wet pavement, even following a light rain, the water coming off the front tires is directed rearward in a constant fan, even at low speed. Straight ahead it's not terrible, but just a few degrees right or left shifts the fan toward the cockpit. Even at very low speed, like pulling into a service station for a fill-up, you're going to experience enough of a douche to upset you. And, BTW, those front cycle fenders should be positioned so the trailing edge is close to the tire and no more than a couple of inches from the pavement. Trust me . . .

    Uncle Wally is demonstrating truth; that's where a front fender should be positioned on a hot rod, especially a roadster or tub.

    Handsome treatment! Just need a a few more inches on the trailing end to be effective and keep spray from bathing the car -- and the cockpit if it's open.

    . . . and dead-nuts perfectly configured front fenders! Mitchell was one of my heroes. Learned a lot just paying attention to way rodders like him built their rides.

    Those observations in saturation definately were noted earlier and absolutely resulted in adjustments of addition and or modding fenders to suit.

    I don't drive in rain...and many with Hotrods back then probably like me refrained from crappy weather days as many had open Roadsters or open something...:D

    I know that is not all Hotrodders as many drove rain or shine...

    @mikebishop37 thanks for your observations and opinions always and I am glad you are enjoying the Thread.

    The Suggestion on rear distance to ground gives practical and visual thoughts and I have seen the look, some even with bolt on flaps to achieve same.

    Mitchell's RP, I was unaware of who owned it but I certainly will look it up as like you its speaks Hotrod in a most admirable way...

    I face that dilemma especially as a Thread expands and generally nobody mentions it if I have, but I have caught myself on occasion and change it with something else...:D...but I don't recall seeing it...and I'm generally not to anal about it either but it's nice to get a bit of space between repetition as a rule of sorts and many times another look at the buried greatness is worth another look...

    That's certainly a Nice Heavy Channel Hemi Deuce looking the part with an interesting set of reworked fenders.

    Thanks always for sharing Jet...;)

    This post is in regards to the Hemi powered ‘32 three window that Jet96 posted above. Yesterday I posted a picture that I took at Timonium back in the early 70’s of what I believe is a later version of the same car! As I remember it was from Jersey and I saw it at a few events back then. The headers look identical. If anyone knows more please enlighten me. What do you think?

    Junior Thompson/Jim Cassidy Hemi powered Street Roadster class.

    Hello,

    The Thompson Brothers (Junior & Eddie ) drove many different hot rod/drag race cars in their vast history. One of the most successful builds was the Hemi Powered street roadster of Jim Cassidy, driven by Junior Thompson. This street roadster was one of the most popular race cars at Lions Dragstrip during the 1958-59 season. The power train was strong and sometimes it took as much concentration driving and handling the light weight street roadster down the dragstrip.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q5Zfx_Ctf0Y watch at :25

    But, some times despite the powerful Hemi motor in the lightweight roadster, someone gets the jump at the start and holds on for a surprise elimination win. Who was this person in the light blue roadster with half fenders front and motorcycle fenders in the front? Buick or Cad powered? It looks like the owner drove the street roadster to the drags and started racing. Street legal was the key in the early builds.

    A rare sight at Lions or any of the So Cal dragstrips, but it did happen.

    Any certified information on the blue street roadster is appreciated. who owned the street roadster, what motor/trans and who drove it, all valuable information. Thanks...
