    Thanks for posting Ryan. I have loved this car for a long time. One of the best 32's of all time!
  3. great car, one of the best channeled deuces ever...I am painting my car a similar color and was hoping I made the right choice...after seeing Jacks car...I DID.
  4. Jack is one of the coolest, nicest guys you could meet. He really did a great job on that car...L.B.

    My God, I have seen this car a bunch of times here on the HAMB but never got the scoop. It's so nice and I can't imagine why more people are not gaga over this thing. And don't get me started on that chromed rear and spring. I think I just fell in love!!!

    Chris Casney is one of the coolest mother fuckers around, and is always a pleasure to shoot the shit with. It's nice when people that have a great deal of talent are so humble and willing to go out of their way to compliment what you are doing and building. That's the type of guy Chris is.

    Bitchin car.

    I know why Chris and get along well, although we've never met in person. He has a similar eye when he shoots. When I look at this shot, I think that is EXACTLY how I would have shot that! :D

    that coupe is extra cool. seen it at Bakersfield. something about that color... whodathunk a brown 32 would be so cool? great bunch of parts and a perfect stance, but that color really sets it apart from the rest.

    Most definitely a very tasty "32. I'd say it would look good parked in my garage but this beat up old body would never fit inside. So..........instead, how about parking it in my living room and just admiring it? That doesn't work either as this one has got to be out and about making others jealous of the owner.:rolleyes::eek::cool::D

    Thanks Ryan, when I started my 5 window project 3 months ago people showed me examples of the details I was going for, and a shot of this car in Bako last year was by by far my fav. It's great to get more pic's and the details!

  18. Ryan ... Thanks for posting this.

    Dreadman ... Nice photography.

    Jack Carroll ... Way Bitchin' Coupe ... I put it in the same class as my other two favorite chopped & channeled Deuce 5-windows ...

    ... Don Williams' "Collegiate Coupe":


    ... and Lynn Yakel's:


    The first time I saw the "Carroll 5wd" in person was @ the 2008 California Hot Rod Reunion ... I took a bunch of "snapshots" of the car ... here's a few of them:

    That Deuce is so beautiful. Everything about it is stunning. In my opinion, that is the probably the best Deuce I have seen. Thank you so much for sharing.

    You said it.........not a color I think I could pull off....but then some cars just flat work. not too much chopped, not too much dropped and it all comes together and just sits right.

    One of the BEST Deuce 5 Windows EVER in my opinion!Everything about the damn thing is PERFECT!

  24. What a killer coupe. The stance and proportions are spot on perfect. For some reason this coupe reminds me of something out of a Keith Weesner drawing. Simply great!

    I remember being FLOORED by Jack's car at the Primer Nat's in '05, but never knew anything more than what I saw. Thanks for the write-up on this beaut, Chris and Ryan...

  28. Jack's car is the real deal, he does really "get" the traditional Hot Rod thing.
    Him and I, kind of think alike (I don't want to put myself on a pedestal, thou), he's got me beat by a mile, when it comes to experience.

    We spent some time figuring stuff out on my car, as well as his car, when he decided to chrome the whole rear axle and change the gears in his axle, it became clear that we share the same obsessive mind, when it comes to details and engineering.
    He nailed every detail on his car, and I hope just to get my car half as perfect.
    Jack's car, for me is "THE" deuce, out there.

    Keep your eyes open for it, in the next Roll & Pleats magazine.

    Thanks Ryan for putting this out there, this car deserves all the exposure it can get.

    Hey, I'm not "that" cool:D
    Thanks Django, I just snap away and hope for the best.

    This is one of the best examples of traditional channeled car.
