  2. Edsel Grille? The mounts for those headlights almost look like they beling there, maybe custom casts? I like those tall rear wheels.

    I am not positive but the headlights look like they might be from a Chysler Imperial as well as the taillights

    I've got to say that mixing the 59 Edsel Grille with the Imperial stand alone headlights is pretty unique!

    I dig the inline, the rest is a bit much for my taste.

    But, to each his own. :)

    i dig the inline mill but the space alien treatment of the front end is to much , id shorten the body up into a p/u type cab and get a model A bed for it ,

    Unsafe looking as is,but the grill shell an't bad,would be something that could be good on a car with some engineering .

    the spring pearch being so far away from the cross member puts alot of torgue on that little tube, and the frame horns.

    Just curious, is this like the time you ask an expert a question for your "friend"? Example: My "friend" has an odd rash, what do you think it could be?
    Expert: Try some medicated ointment.
    And you say: Thanks, i'll try that!

    Shock rod

    Some build cars to look good others build cars for shock value. I'm in the former camp. The only thing I find interesting is trying to identify the totally unrelated parts. Sorta like identifying the parts on a blue tarp in a flea market.

    Xcept for the xtended front suspension...not too bad. why would this not be a good-looking vehicle? (need to learn why)
     
  28. Tommy got it right. It' a real waist of otherwise average parts.
    Time to start over and build a real hot rod.
