    Hi guys, been around awhile but don't post much.

    After reading that awesome "Auto Racing 1894-1944" thread I decided to build my own vintage racer, but couldn't find anyone currently building bodies.

    So I built my own. Steel tubing structure with riveted aluminum body panels on a basic hot rod frame. Still not quite finished, need interior, windscreen, etc, but you get the idea.

    Think there is a market out there for such a thing? If so, I wonder how much people would be willing to pay for a body like this. It might be fun to build bodies on the side.

    I couldn't afford one, but I LOVE IT! Do you think you could please post some pictures on the build process. I would love to have one for the Georgia Racing Hall of Fame museum where I work.

    Here's a few pics that give the basic idea.
    -Ford 200 straight six & 3 speed from '66 stang
    -31 radiator shell, Speedway '32 front axle kit, Ford 8.8 with 4.10 gears & disks
    - 2x4 tube frame with 32 front frame horns & crossmember
    - tubular structure
    - riveted aluminum panels
