'60s show-rod maaaan. I think this type of rod will become more popular in the near future...a revisit to that era. And even though it doesn't represent the '30s/'40s/'50s/early '60s styles that most of us prefer, it'll open up a whole new bunch of possiblities for new rods of that type. I like show-rods...I think they're cool in their own right. Lots of glimmering flake, chrome, and some crazy styling ideas is fun. And enough time has passed, that they are quite historical. I like the Chevy fins, and agree with those who have suggested to go further with the show-rod styling. That front axle is far enough forward to accommadate a pretty deep custom-moulded grill-shell with some integrated headlights. Paint will help bring this build together...and the right wheel/tire combo. How about a pearl-white diamond-tufted top-insert to match the interior? I always prefer a healthy chop, but that's just a preference. Doc...it's cool that you and Sleepwalker share the hobby...and really nice to hear a father speak so highly of his son. I'll bet the feeling is mutual. Proper due respect to him for his service, and good luck to the both of you and your flying Model A...LOL.
