    Cool car. I want to see the robust '50s vise, too.

    Interesting that he kept the AA Rochester. Not many rodders used them.

    It really is killer! I noticed the shock mounts as well. Seems like in theory it would rock, but on compression it would just push the shock up a little more as the spring side went down. Probably works fine.

    wonder how that model A rear survived the olds v8! Pray for for it to never hook up when you launch it I guess? Guess it’s probably no weaker than a 46-8 banjo that everyone uses?

    Lol my comment has literally nothing to do with this post and everything to do with my being a 7th grader.
