    Thank God!...I thought for sure it would have been the '32 sedan by Pinkee's, great car, but what a horrible color.

    I thought that green looked fantastic on that car but some of these guys think hotrods only should be painted rattle can flat black.

    The A coupe is one hell of a car for a guy's first full build. and it must be a hell of a nice driver along with looking right.

    From reading the criteria for the award a 100 mile road trip and a pass down a drag strip were included in the requirements when a car was put in contention for the award. That will knock out a lot of those rods that never get driven in fear of a rock chip or putting miles on the odometer.

    Gorgeous little car. I really like the black through the beltline. Helps tie it all together.

  12. Lots of attitude right up front. Very well detailed but still looks traditional. Great stance.

    Im sure this cars well done and it has good lines and well balanced ,but man its ugly at a distance it looks like a rat with paint .in a crowd with a couple thousand cars you could easily pass this car over its not my tast but i can see the effort again well done .

    There's pics of Dirty2's old tudor on his website.

    Is that where Dirty's car ended up?

    Did Dirty's car give this guy the rod itch?

    The second shifter is the e-brake... We made alot of joke about that when the car was being built..

    He did buy Dirty's car... He sold it last year right before Columbus Goodguys... It is now in Belgium..

    I love the car, but am not so sure about the color combo. I'm suprised they'd pick a car with such suttle color. Maybe be less really is more.
