    I have had this Rat's body and a Lobeck frame for several years, finally got around to getting it running. Just a cheap "tupperware" ride that will be fun!!

    Nice ride, that's neither a rat or cheap by any standard. It will be fun however.

    You can only blame yourself for the fact that it's still apart. :D

    Thanks Blue
    Not sure if you say this out of concern or just passing on sage advice from one old dude to another. If I thought it would have any bearing on your view of me I would go into detail.
    But I just don't have the energy and besides it's not about you and me anyway. I guess I should have just given the OP his deserved attaboys and been done with it
     
  11. Hey Joe,where ya gonna go with that roadster in your hands? HRP

    Just messing with you Denny. I'm sure you have valid reasons for the ride being apart, just as I do for not having mine finished.
    As long as we keep plugging away and having fun its all good :D :)

    I will join the envious and congratulate you finishing your car in time for summer fun while I return to my garage and the never ending to do list. There is always next year. Drive safe...screw it, just drive.

  15. Nice roadster. Front tires Pirelli? What size tires - front & rear, please. Trying to decide for my roadster and I like the way yours look.
