    I apologize if it is already out there, but I did a search and found nothing. I would like to see a thread on Model A roadster tops done right. Chopped, styled, etc. It is one of the hardest things to get right on an A roadster. Show us some pics!

    I have seen some beautiful Model A roadsters and when the top goes up they become the ugly girl at the dance. I am just curious if there are some tops out there that are done right!

    I did not build this car, but the guy I bought it from said he used a glass top (from Wescotts I believe) for a '32, and modified it to fit a Model A. If interested in the details, let me know and I will try to call him and see if he is willing to discuss this with you.

    Well here's my 2 cents. Eddie baumann's 29 is absolutely perfect! I'm just sayin... ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1381092002.566980.jpg
    So I don't have one yet but a 28-29 roadster is next on my list!

    If you go to the TRADITIONAL section of the site & search "roadster tops" you'll find many threads w/ pics.
