    I have a question about your wiring. Is this a 12 V system or 6 V ?

    You have perfect taste...I can`t fault a thing on your car.As somebody asked, what suspesion mods have you employed to get the stance?I think it`s great that you and your granpa have made this happen...total respect to you both. Pix are going into my files...I was already sort of half looking for a 39 deluxe..you`ve just given me the kick I needed..thanks!!

    That is a beautiful car. You've really done an incredible job, and you have a great eye for detail. I love it without the bonnet. The stance is just perfect. Can you please tell me what you've done to the suspension?

    to answer the stance questions it has a magnunm 4" axle in front with a posie reversed eye spring in front on firestone 5.50 16s.....in the rear a posie reversed eye spring with tardel 1" longer shackles and 7.00 16s... i really owe the credit to the stance to axle! he leaked the stance on his 36 3 window, but his sits a little lower in the rear. i might go another half inch or so in the rear in the shackles but im gonna drive it like this for a while...
     
  14. I went for a ride in this car yesterday morning... This car runs great. The ride is good and the pipes sound really good! You know when you got that feeling? some people call it jealousy... That was me yesterday... Jealous! Great car... My hat is off to you! :D
