    image.jpeg Some pictures just have that "this would be a fun car to build" look to them. Don't know anything about this coupe.....maybe someone can fill us in, but it sure looks like a good start.

  3. It think this pic is from the nationals in Louisville. Reisinger is from Evansville Indiana I believe and built the give away car for '16 (all this from my old memory). Don't know about the car other than the obvious. Maybe a customer car or something they are building to sell.

    image.png Take an artistic eye, a bunch of talent, lots of free time and a pile of old car parts and if you have a good amount of stick-to-it-ness, you could end up with a slick little roadster like this one!

    Me too.....but I personally would have used some of Henry's wishbones. No chop is user friendly and looks great too!

    Here are two unchopped coupes. The one first posted and another I lifted from HAMB, don't know who's it is. But the frame matching the body color makes the blue one look taller. Don't it ?[​IMG][​IMG]

    The blue one is a very wild coupe, but I'll take the black one.

  13. I believe he was talking about the blue unchopped highboy coupe in his post rather than Dick Patterson's chopped and channeled coupe.

    Yes, for some reason the pic of the blue coupe didn't open before I posted, but now it does. The biggest difference is the height and the width of their rear tires.

    image.png image.png Every time I see these pictures, I want to buy a tubing notcher and a bunch of round tube.

  16. Love this car. Grafted in a well crafted way: '59 Pontiac hood, tail light panel, and dash; along with other traditional touches like custom bumpers in a 32 Ford. Beautiful.

    Here's a couple of Hilton coupes. If this doesn't inspire, I don't know what will [​IMG][​IMG]
    I still think the frame color matching the body makes the body look taller. I get the wheel/ tire size.
    Here's one of my favorites, @Car doc's 32 coupe [​IMG]
    And this one[​IMG]
