    Now that looks big fun.
    Love the flowing lines everywhere.
    What sort of "nose" is it going to have ?
    What a dream....good luck with this project.

  4. That's 6" extra
    And still Looks cool!
    Amd deceiving. That turtle deck looks extra long, and the eye sees a coupe roof but it's a short pick up roof.
    Still would like to see a full size person seated in there.
    It's gonna be like laying down in A pick up cab.

    At first I was thinking this was heading in the rodent direction, but not anymore. Keep at it. Something from nothing.

    From a pile of nuthins ... to a hotrod coupe...
    part of the fun is that you don't have a perfect original copy staring you in the face... you don't have to measure up to one... you can do what you want and not have to care what THEY think...
    .
    I have a rough full hight '35-'36 car cowl with a bad windshield frame... free if you come get them... top half of the '35 w/s... bottom half model A ...
    let me know if you need pix...

    Unless you are a very short person, you can skip the slides. No reason to ever slide the seat forward!
    Definitely has the Bonneville look.

    This last pic gives a pretty decent idea of the overall lines. I must admit on the first few posts I wasn’t sold but this last pic has me being a bit more of a believer. Kudos to you for following your own path. I’ll watch with interest!
