    this is the progress on my model A. its a project i been wanting to do forever. all body n frame are hand made. started with a 27 cal n decided i wanted to make it a 28 A. all thats left are for me 2 finish bangin out the quarters, back window,trunk, and converting the cal to a 1928. heres some pics. i am also filming the whole car being built. so maybe ill throw a movie togeather.

    after a long break i started working on the car again once it got a little warmer. i tried a new way with the quarter to make it out of 2 pieces insted of one which saved me a bunch of hours. finished the body framing and hopefully ill have the top on within a few weeks.

    Cal, cowl-wish i'd spent more time learning to work metal, and less time learning to spell! Or looking for the spellcheck button!

    That is some fine workmanship!

    Im impressed, so far really great.
    I've seen a few people build rear quarters for cars (an old 20's Buick and Chev) and they both looked real boxy with no curve to them. You look like you know what your doing though, just something to keepin mind - keep us updated!!
