    That's an impressive car, made by your own hands, and now I find it even more impressive by the amount you have spent, or rather, NOT SPENT putting this thing together.

    Very, very, very cool car. You are truly a traditional rodder in the purest sense! Keep up the good work, and the pictures! I wanna see this thing go!:D

    yea i built bucks saved all the patterns but i honestly dont know for sure how close of a match up it is to a real model a. i measured a bunch of roadsters and a sedan but i actually never measured out a 28 coupe and still havent, i dont know anyone who has one. mostly everything is measured and made according to the measurements but a few things are by eye

    If you ever have to find another job put these pictures in your resume. Any jackass can use a dictionary but damn few of us could do what you have done with this car. My hat is off to you.
