WAY KOOL! You sir, Have some talent and imagination, Again, KOOL! John
That is one nifty ride. A two seat 30's Indy car with 60's Indy Roadster wheels is the look I get.
Beautiful. I would love to see more pictures of it. Most of all, I would like to see the rear suspension set up. I have a 1927 dodge brothers that I am planning to make into a speedster. It was made into a doodle bug and has no rear suspension so I am looking for ideas.
That is a really fine piece of work.Great craftsmanship and really classic looks.
I agree with the earlier comment that it looks like a two seater early Indy car,back when the mechanic used to ride along.
I too would like to see some more vintage looking rolling stock on it,but its pretty hard to argue with the amount of fun you're having with it in its current state.
Great job,glad you're out there putting miles on and having fun!
Posted using two Dixie cups and a medium length piece of string.
Nice job! Gary
very cool little car, well done..
When I cruised the junk yard looking for a project this rear spring set up really caught my eye. I use it for a step to get in as well. I took out 5 leafs to get it to ride comfortably.
Very nicely proportioned. Any pics of the body under construction?
way cool car! I would also be interested in some pics of the body fabrication.
I have been trying all day to send out the pictures of the build and the photos just won't upload. I Have only one photo that got on today. Anyone know what I can do?
Fred, you might want to create a photo album in your profile. Load the photos there and you should be able to post them in your threads. I resize my photos in MS Paint, selecting resize, setting pixels at 800 x 600, or 1066 x 800, selecting maintain aspect ratio. I save them (save as) to my desktop, add them to the photo album, then delete said altered images off my desktop. In that fashion, my original 14 megapixel bitmaps remain unaltered in their storage medium.
I would suggest loading them on a photo host site and then resizing them and then posting them here from the host site. That is what many of us who post a lot of photos do.
Photobucket, Image shack and Flicker are three popular ones although there are more.
I like it, I think if you did all the work you are very talented. Keep building.--TV
How much did it lower the frame taking out those 5 leafs?
I've got a 27 Buick frame i'm turning into a speedster that has the same rear setup... it caught my eye too!
Damn nice work Fred!
I was lucky enough to purchase this a year and a half ago and it now looks a bit different. Fred did an amazing job on the build everyone who sees it loves it. https://www.flickr.com/gp/191081023@N07/G7031j
