  1. The T with a 6 banger is remarklably fast! I've watched him at the "Day of the Drags" but forget his times, the thing handles very well and he's got a big pair to go that fast without a roll bar/cage and nothin but a seat belt!

    I'm not sure even what the seat belt would do, it looks like a fiberglass seat with a pillow on it and a monster in front of it... HUGE PAIR. HUGE. Is that Ford 300 running 3x2's?

    Mine's still progressing. Slowly.

    More parts painted in base/clear. Master cylinder, steering box and rear shocks.

    Some hand tabbed rod ends.

    Modified king pins, assorted hardware and more grade 8 bolts to polish.

    Front spring painted and assembled.

    And the frame pretty much the way you saw it last.

    We did finalize the ivory color that the wheels and firewall will be. I dropped off the sample to the paint store this afternoon and they'll have it mixed for us Monday morning.

  4. The three RR's pictured are all Ford freaks( I can dig it) the T has since been updated with a steel body and has a door for easy enter and exit( hope it doesn't fly open if he ever crashes) LOL
     
  5. Time for more! How about some '26-'27 tourings...

    My frame is done and waiting for the body to get painted, a 26 RPU body with a modified '23-'25 turtle deck.

    26 T Ford RPU, the repositioned radiator support rods do wonders for the look of that car, and I even cut my radiator side rod mount off and flipped it upside down to get a better angle on mine after seeing yours.

    No it's not!

    Besides, I hear the owner is a long-winded bastard that'll bore you to tears talking about T-Buckets or louvers... Sometimes both at once. Oh, and he dresses funny...

    His obvious shortcomings aside, he still somehow managed to get a gig on TV so he must not be all that bad.
