Today I put four original springs back into the rear pack.
Way better yet supported ride, and the fenderwell opening is now "fist high"
I think others will join me in saying, that looks like a hot rod.
I turned 3 different shades of green............love it.
A flatty powered A roadster is on my must have list.
I'm so jealous of your roadster. I hate you!!! j/k
Now that's a stance! I sure do like those trunk latches.
Looks great, your comments made me measure my car. :-( I am a pinky short of a fist. Story of my life.......
Joe Cool Hotrod you can't beat a ride in a roadster with a flaty 3 speed trany and banjo rear end...... I'll be watching how you change your windshield because I need to do the same. Later Bruce
post some videos of her running !!
Looks Great! I know its been said, and I know you know it, but I said it again!
I am currently buildind a flathead powered 28 roadster and have not been able to decide if I want to use my 28, 30 or 32 grille shell or what color, after seeing yours I think it will be 32 shell and do you know the paint color code annd brand on yours?
Washington blue, then a shitload of black added, then a little more!
Mitch can give a more exact answer on the color.
Just plain BITCHIN!!! Makes me want to redo mine.
Glad the purists didn't bang you for the few concessions the previous owner made. It's a cool ride.
I tried to put it in the appropriate forum, as in styled. Let's just keep the talk of the heated seat kit quiet.....
Thanks for all the compliments.
On the color, I went to the paint store and picked just about the darkest solid blue color that i could find. After a few trips back to the paint store to darken it up, he just gave me some black toner in a can. I ended up using all of it. I am by no means a painter. But, I do have a very patient friend that works at the paint store.
Well I've racked up a couple hundred miles on it.
Its been tough driving it much as I drop off my four boys at school on my way to work and we can't all fit in it.
But this last week and next week has / will work well as school is out.
This pic was taken Christmas day. Shortly after the pic I got nailed by a bird from overhead.....
I am working on another Coupe right now so I haven't had much time to think about modifying the stantions yet. I do plan was on making an adapter to run a banjo wheel on the existing column.
@A Rodder I just spotted your and @elmitcheristo roadsters, featured on the HOPUPLAND portion of the Hop Up web page. Scroll down to the coverage from August 9th of the Goodguys Puyallup event. Not much but I thought I'd share it with you. The car is looking great!
Thats awesome, we had a great time. Our friend. Nick had been there years back. It was Mitch and I's first time.
Was a pleasure meeting Jack as well.
