    I actually thought of historic roads largely dirt back in the day and fenders hugging tires getting choked up with mud...that may have had a relation to clearances...City based versus out in the boonies...But yes close to tire looks better and it is interesting the positioning and lengths are all over...but you know when there's no rules it's like that...and I'm pretty open...to all variations...

  16. Seems these would look better if the tops had a rake.​

    I'm still not connecting it to a post...but when you reply to a post if you left the content of the post when replying it would help...

    this is probably a long shot..but after reading about the “ice box” coupe above and looking at the linked thread, then looking at details of this coupe.. what are the chances this is an early version of the same car? It appears to have chrome door hinges and a 32 shell, along with the bobbed rear fenders.. of course there’s good chance I’m completely wrong

    I think the chop is less or not chopped. When building The Ice Box a re-chopping is not a thing that wasn't done if there was a former chop already and yes taking someone else's former dream, then remastering it is certainly not a new phenomenon...I would think there is a plausible chance especially if these fellas and the Coupe were in Connecticut in the mid 50s. I really like the early version of the Ice Box in Austinrods Thread without the front fenders...it really had a look with the later version like above also full of 60s coolness.

    Hamber @desoto was one of those who was fortunate to have a camera in the Hamb era at the strip and other locales and he seemed to be influenced by the RatFink revolution or even earlier Hoodlum doodling as evidenced by the art on the top...:D

    :rolleyes:...this is a great fender detail shot of the Bart Root Roadster...and I'll overlook the Bug as they share incredible history and this quite clearly shows rectangular bar bolted strategically thru the backing plates with the rearward bar under the kingpin boss on the plate...

    Bicycle tubing is a strong fairly light period option and as
    alluded use of just steel or aluminum round tube as well...so many options for those considering Cycle Style Fronts...

    Another unrelated but notable detail in this pic is the Lower Shock Bracket looking to be a 90° angle bolted to the lower perch similar to the more modern L-Shaped Cousin...
