    Well, you asked, :) but I don't like that bag stance on any car, especially a good looking '40. Keeping the fenders above the white walls is much more appropriate, imo.

    Looks great! House behind it very cool as well, perfect backdrop for the car!

  12. Very nice! I tend to agree with the others who said it needs to be raised up a bit for a "hot rod" stance. I'm a big fan of the color combination. Reminds me of my '34.

    Looks bad ass. Who doesn't like a 40 coupe. You could show another pic or two though.

    As they say bags are for groceries. Don’t think bags suit a 40 , ok put them on a custom if you must.
    This car is so super cool on its own right, it doesn’t need the xtra low undriveable look.
    Stance is everything (RIP Bear)

    Look out for speed bumps and storm gutters in parking lots. The car looks nice.
  17. Congratulations that is awesome .

    A couple of questions - Is this car driven at this stance ?
    If so, how does it ride & drive ?

    A car that you don't enjoy driving isn't worth owning.
    I also like the house.

    Like the car, but not the stance, so I voted no.

    Very nice.If bagged it can be adjusted up for conditions but I like the look as is. I don't care to see a 40 chopped but like a 40 that's been channeled.Big yes from this Voter !

    Low is good until its too low to be driven. When the tire is up in the fender that far, its too low

    The only thing I don't like about it is the title is not in my name! :D HRP

    Assuming the OP really wants to know others opinions, here's mine.
    Sits way too low. One piece street rod windshield. No vent windows. Makes me suspicious it may have the dreaded GM tilt column. All of that makes it look like the street rods I see at the shows which aren't my cup of tea. That being said, it looks to be a well done rebuild judging from the one picture, way better than my backyard amateur projects. If it can be raised up with a switch under the dash and become a safe and comfortable daily driver I would overlook what I don't like and just drive the wheels off it.
