    Funny this started outs as a street rod for fun and then just grew, we took all the great stuff I had for another car and put in on this one. The car is turning out nice and am very happy with the build so far....Thanks very much

    i love the amount of 33-34s being built on the HAMB now (including mine). All quite traditionally minded, and with an incredible amount of variety. just goes to show how creative you can be and still get it 'right.'

    Todays pictures of the car, Kinmonts are a bitch had to get the axle flange out in front of the plate so it could all flush out. Got the Franklin overdrive in and all done. Making one off wheels for the car with knock off.'s....Had to take the radiator back off so it could have the lower hose mount change because the front cross member was dropped to get the car down. Very close to paint.....

    Not done yet, it seems to take so much time to build this stuff.........but then again when your building the best, it does take time......

    That's gotta be awkward every time we say "you must be rich!!". We're just kidding with ya, while there are all big money parts being fastened to this car the most important thing is that you're doing it with Taste and that my friend costs nothing yet is more important then any single part. Most of the time a car can be too much with the best of the best thrown at it but I really like where this one's going. It's not mine so my opinion doesn't matter but if I were building it I'd do just as you are only I'd run a simple set of 16" ford steelies instead of the knock offs since I think it would be a bit more understated but I understand your want to go big and wheels can be changed later if you go another route.

    Great work so far. I really love the engine but who wouldn't?

    The coupe is looking good, great work throughout. I'm sure you have your reasons for using all the parts you have, however i think with the brakes being used as well as the car they are on I would have thought you would have used origonal spindles, wishbones and dropped axle? Regaurdless, the coupe is coming along nicely:)

    I would love to have done that, the car has taken some direction changes and I am working on the front end. The drop is the issue as I want the rear tires to line up with the front and the after market axle is the only way to go. I have set the car low and want the rear and the front tires to line up and stay tight to the body. I think the look is great and wish I could find a better way to get what I want and stay all "Ford" but this is always the issue. The brakes also are hard to find parts for and being that I am doing wheels and Knock off's just makes the whole thing much harder. I want a look and I see I have to compromise on some stuff. I was just gonna run steel wheels but the car seems to call for better than that and thats why the one off's are being cut. Thanks for the thoughts, I have allot of time in this one.....

    As for the Money shit that gets sent out, I don't mind, I am used to it....I am glad the this thread has gotten the respect that is due based on the work that has been done. Its cool that the haters have not come out, I appreciate the comments on the car. I am definitely designing the car to fit what I want and not the trend that is out there, or whats been done so many time before. I like working with Rudy and the fact that he gives me the room to change my mind and do the the changes, that I ask. I am very happy with the car and just want to get it done and drive it.....
