    I like Model A grilles on Model A's, so that's my pick also.

    Yes. It's been Z'd.. I can't remember off the top of my head how much though. It's also had the spring moved to behind the axle using a '48 banjo rear axle.

    The front of the frame is also upswept at the front of the cowl Bob Bleed style to get the body a little closer to earth. Original plans were to channel the body the width of the frame, but as soon as I rolled the car outside with the frame done, I fell in love with the stance and decided channeling it would be too much.

    (obviously the suspension was not done at this point, but you can see where it was starting to show its character)

    Awesome. I love this thing. Well worth the lack of trunk space!

    Hey Banger Bob, are those some fabricated folding posts on your 28 ?

    Any chance of some more pics and details...

    I fitted 30 posts to my 28.
