    The remarkable thing here is the sheer variety of machinery that was used. It does rather give the lie to the view that would restrict traditional hot-rodding to alternative reassemblies of basically stock early Ford parts.

    there is real tradition and "hamb" tradition. in my opinion one has nothing to do with the other. to a car guy both are valuable.

    So much build history... Unfortunately the "race only" limits future builds for the street and few survivors exist... So these pictures are priceless!

    I tell ya, I know this is a long running thread and I don't post much, but I have to comment on how moving these pics are. Truly a glimpse into the past, and some unique shots. Glad it came back up top

    I'd love to build a narrow, single seater for the street. You could even have a spare for friends to use, or spouses, etc.. They'd be easy to garage, get good mpg if you use a little I4. And if there were 10 or 20 others out there in your area, you all could go cruzn like the bike crowd does - except you wouldn't fall over if you forgot to put your foot down. I've even been considering a narrowed Model T or A coupe as a cool commuter vehicle! And you'd only need one working door! Gary

    PS and if you just had to have two seats, set the pax seat behind the driver to keep the body as narrow as possible, like the riding mechanic seats of old.
