    Just picked up my T coupe from Choprods shop today.I had him do all the hard stuff.He blasted the body,did some rust repair and chopped the top while he had it.I think it turned out great and I really like the look it has.I had this car at the Hamb drags last year, with a roadster body on it then.Decided to change the body to a coupe over the winter.Hope to get it back on the road this summer and get a lot of driving time on it.My new job pretty much kills all my spare time so I know its gonna take me a lot longer than most to get it back on the road.Planning on getting some kinda paint on it and interior in it, also.

    Thanks for the compliments guys, I havent decided exactly what color I want to use for sure, but have narrowed it down to a couple of em. Looking to paint it a color that would look like it would of been done in the 60s.

    Nick, the frame was built by Choprods frome scratch to look like a 32.He used rect, tubing, then added a side plate cut and shaped like the 32. I think it makes the car look much better than the usual small thin look a normal t or a frame has.Thanks.

    Looking good Reggie. Hmm I think a nice Rootbeer Brown would look pretty cool on that thing.

    To all that commented on the car thanks much.Plans are to do it up in a fifties type home grown, dirt floor, pitiful air compressor,type paint job in an appliance type "copper" color, with a white tucknroll interior and a white insert for a top,maybe even a white firewall, but keep it all just o.k., so I can drive the hell out of and enjoy peoples company at the "DRAGS".
    And Denise, not to worry, I got a good taste of roadster ownership last summer,weather was great, and now I cant live with out one.So I went out to Nebraskee or ( ROCKY LAND ) as I prefer to call it and brought home a fair old 27 T touring body, thats my next roadster! Im hooked on em! Of course I never got wet last year or cold! Is that part of the true roadster experience? HA HA!
    the tires on the rear are just old farm truck tires, you can buy most anywhere, only problem is, they are ten ply, I have about 5lbs of air in them and the car still rides rougher than hell.
    One more pic, I self titled this one as "two brothers living the dream"
    Looking forward to seeing everyone at MO-KAN !
