    Roger, those scoops seem to be 'unsafe at any speed' ;););)

    Fortunately, Bill, I use "reverse' sparingly and don't back up very fast...!!!

    You don't see many split roof Shoebox chops.
    My old '50 was the only split-top Shoebox chop that I know of (though quite a bit different from yours...5" at the B-pillar, rearward taper, laid down back glass). But I'm quite sure I've never seen one that was also stretched!
    The profile/proportions are so subtle, and will be unique to the car.
    What are your design plans for the rest of the car?

    This vintage Kustom was originally used as a tow vehicle for a drag car.
