    Everything that should be there, and nothing else.

    Perfect.

  11. I, too have a channeled roadster with a 265" small block, no oil filter, Chevrolet engine. My roadster was built in the late 1950's too. These roadsters were the right combination for their time.

    I kinda felt bad about taking it away from STL, since it had lived its whole life there, but I got over it.

    I am going to redesign the seat and reupholster. It has a metal bar that will surely break our backs if we ever get into a collision. I'll just do a quick refresh on the paint. Shouldn't take a couple days to do. I'll spray it when the motor tranny is out to fix second gear. Rebuild the carbs and call it good. I don't want the car down for very long.

  29. Nice, I seen a photo of that before, heck maybe even that article, the channel and stance reminds me of a slot car or even that one Hot Wheels car.
