    it's *awesome* sitting just the way it is. dont be tempted to chop it!! I like the broken back look too. The only thing I'd do to it is paint it, 'flake it in fact.
     
  2. I vaguely remember seeing pics of your Model A before. I love it, especially the color combination!

    Thanks,
    Kurt

    I wouldn't change that car 1 bit. In fact, when fabrication on my car is done and I take it apart for paint and detail, I plan to raise the back quite a bit. I also do not plan to chop it. Yours looks great! -Jeff

    Man oh man. Never thought I would get this kind of feedback. Always felt somewhat hesitant to post anything on here. Usually because everything I wanted to ask was already archived and posted. Gotta say Thanks to all of you once again for your input.
    I just learned that I could have done a poll on here. That would have been interesting but I think Its just going to come down to how I feel in the A as I drive it more and more.

    I remember reading somewhere that Its not a True Hot Rod Unless its chopped. lol not that I agree just what I read.

    I think the Model A 5 Window coupe has got to make the top 5 as far as being THE MOST HOT RODDED American car ever Made. And I do mean HOT ROD!

    EDIT TOP 3! I wonder what the numbers would look like if someone took a Poll and see whats actuall out there as far as A Coupes to 32's.

    Yeah, I agree with some of the others that said that something looks funky regarding the hood line/firewall/bent frame look. I don't what to call it, but I think it looks funny.

    See the red line in the pictures below... maybe you like it sitting like that, which is okay, too each their own; but I like it straight, none of that brokeback shit.... just more aesthically pleasing....

    Ow quick note.... You might not want to tell a board of testosterone filled
    hot rodders that you girl friend won't let you chop your car...hhahahahaha

    So I dropped the back so it don't look broken at the fire wall. (Some call it So- Cal Broken)
    Trying to keep the frame following the body.

    Also Chopped it ...I guess about 4 - 4 1/2... I know your girl will be mad
    but,,, just think of how much cooler it is looking through that chopped windshield!!!

    My opinion...but what do I know?

    Stance IS everything. Hatch nailed his. Yours is cool also. I would take the car Back to "the jack ranch" and see if James Dean has an opinion. I bet he would say do what you like...:D
    Enjoy

    Nobilleta - I love that car. Can you give me the specifics of how you set up the chassis? I cant bear to chop my 31 5 window, too straight. Its a rumble seat though, and I would love to keep that functional so i dont know about channelling and/or z'ing.

    I too really like the high stance, unchopped, dirt track tires, vrrrrroooom! But I live in Vermont on a dirt road, not in California so I am somewhat prejudiced as well...
