    I wanted to share one of my projects I have been working on.
    My 30' model A pick up. I purchased a very rusty cab and what I believe was a cataloged ordered model T frame. I have since replaced cab corners, made rocker/floor section, replaced door bottoms, channeled 4 inches and chopped top 2 inches. I also graphed a roof skin from a ford expedition. The bed is homemade with later model ford tailgate skin. The frame has been "Z" 4 inches and I moved engines mounts up 3 inches so the trans and pans don't hang below the frame, I also had to stretch the rear to match the wheel base I wanted.
    I purchased the engine from a wrecked old Chevy truck (350cid), zommies/headers are weld together yourself kit from summit. Transmission is turbo 400 cheap from a motor home. ford 9" rear with coil overs.
    Still need to adjust rear, mount pedals, and plumb everything, driveshaft, etc. hotrod1.png hotrod2.JPG ... I am trying to make the Jalopy Showdowns in PA this spring!
