    Man you are lucky to find those, I've been hunting for over a year for a set of those 37 Desoto tailights for my 31 coupe, saw 1 set and missed them by one bid....I'm so jealous but they are bad ass!!!

    Your build is off the hook, totally love it, and the engine.....WOW!

    Keep up the great work!!

    Thanks.
    Yes, I like to use the colors what it have when it came in here. But when everything works great and even the last hole is drilled, I will rip it apart, sand blast it and change the colors.
     
  15. can't wait to see where you go with it!

    It has to be great feeling to -ofcourse to finally drive car that you rebuilt yourself, but also- trying to see traffic somewhere behind carbs and frogmouth scoops!

    Can't wait to see it in reality! I think you should bring it to Turku Kustom Show! http://www.turkukustomshow.com/index_english.php

    Hello fellows!
    I've been very tired to play with computer. All what I have done is laying and sleeping, pretty hard winter and spring in garage...

    Next thing is try to get it registered and get it between a real licence plates.

    I've been driving it now about 600 miles and it work very well and it is really FAST!!!

    Week ago here in Finland was European Street Rod Nationals happening (over 200 hot rods all over the europe) and I won two prizes (yippee)! Top 10 and one Special Prize!

    More updates coming next winter, if I can save enough money for new paint and for new upholstery...

    Here's a one cool shot from Pekka "Wizzz" Mannermaa.
    Have to admit, it is beautifull...

    Actually it's not finished yet. I will change all colors, but my wallet says it wouldn't happen in this winter, hopefully next year...

    Web page where I was uploaded pictures went down or something, I will start new thread someday when something interesting happen.
