Your car is awesome, I like the idea of a rack out back, and think the rear fenders are cool. Glen
Very KOOL ! Attaboy !
I cleaned up the cut line at the roof line, along with changing some switches for the air suspension.
Almost ready to fire it up.
Ahhh, good one EH!.... You Australia guys.
Now I have to build one!
To my Aussie friend... a rack outback is is now done...... that and my first show off.... good vibes from everyone... North Bay, Ontario, Canada.
Not quite a trailer queen,,,,, more like a dirty bi*ch on a flat bed.....
Hey, some like them that way!
Like the rack, is it fixed, or does it fold up against the body when not in use?? like the original 30s cars..
Absolutely amazing. That's a work of art right there.
I'd throw a steamer trunk on the back and call it a day.
I'd be lucky if I could strap a case of beer on the back..... it's pretty narrow.
come to think... Why didn't I make it so I could fit a case or two on the back?
I'm gonna have to re design that.
It doesn't fold either. but It's being used all the time..... It fills the hole that was there before!
about the trunk... I have small 7 up cooler that I may strap to the back for junk in the trunk. Or I can put the spare on the back if I head out of town.
Nice job, it got the look, good luck !
I just realized that I parked out beside the Bank.... With my Bank robber car. I'm gonna have to come back without the float and get some better pictures..... maybe a few bags of money too.
Love it!!! I’m in the process of building at 33 hudson terraplane. Looking for a used windshield frame. If you hear of anything, please let me know! Thank you

I haven't been on this site for a while... some pictures of the car this summer before the drive shaft let go and came through the floor.
Had it out to visit old friends and relatives.
Took the fenders off and new tires (front are not on yet)
Up on stands to change the drive shaft.
Now that I've built it..... I'm thinking that I want to build something else.
I'm thinking of a chopped '53 two door belair ratty looking sled, but on air and an LS motor.
That ain't no rat
I guess nothing I own is considered a Rat.
I'd rather have them a little shabby, but I still like them clean and well built.... something I'm proud to show my workmanship and attention to detail.
Now with that out of the way....
I got the new driveshaft cut, welded and installed. then noticed the trans pan was leaking so replaced that... oil pan was leaking too so I pulled it off and figured I'd change the oil pump, which led to pulling one of the bearing caps....
so now the bottom end has new bearings, new pump and back together... again
Now I only have to wait for the snow to melt..... 5 months to go.
Without the hood id loose the air cleaner.
It seems like I'm getting an air breather collection and a steering wheel collection too.... I just can't decide which one..... so I change them up all the time just so the guys at the local meet have something to see and comment about.
I get a kick out of the old farts...
