    Hiboy style in 1975 L.A.to Memphis & back.


    Love the concept Pix!!!!----STEEL IS REAL!!!-----The shell peak job is similar to mine, done in 1995, looks good!
    I am concerned about the tailights, they might be a little "Vulnerable" in a rear end slight bump!
    Whats your plan upon completion??----Gonna "drive" it out to the LAR Fathers Day show in Pomona Fairplex?????????----Don:D:D

    No updates, been busy with customer projects and parts orders... this here roadster doesnt pay the bills... Thanks for your interest!
    The rails are Jim Weimer's.... thanks for the kind words
    Plans for this car are to campaign the hell out of it at as many shows and events as I can. Some sponsers may use the car for promotional purposes.... and will I drive it? You better believe it!

    Mike,

    Wish you the BEST on this build! Keep plugging away and it will all come together.

    I love to have a rod shop like yours close by!

    Hey thanks alot! Your roadster is very nice as well, you should be proud.

    I have not done much on this roadster, hence the lack of updates. Had some other things come up and projects that pay the bills. I will get back on it hot and heavy in the not to distant future and will keep you guys posted.

    Your not too far, when the weather breaks come on up or sooner if you want, just call ahead!
     
  6. Mike;
    looks like a great ride!
    Must however coment on your concept sketch of the front shock.
    Mounted as shown it will not work. GUARENTEED!:eek:
    Constructively,
    Buffalo Bill.

    Thanks, fear not... it will not and never was intended to be mounted as drawn... Jimmy just through that sketch in there for reference I am sure.

    Why not? If you don't mind me asking. Am I missing something or does my warped point of view keep me from seeing the obvious?:)

    It would if you set it up with a "roller" to allow the movement side to side... it really would probably work... but never the less, the design I plan to utilize will incorporate a "dogbone" type link.

    STAY TUNED, ha.

    Thanks for the interest!
