    Coupe for me almost always except in the case of 35/36 roadsters.

    Coupester, some do it beter than others. Getting the lines around the back of the cab right and small details like thinning the doors, capping the winhdow frame etc. help pull it off.
    Nice job.

    It's a real Henry roadster.

    Ct1932ford a coupe with AC for the summer would be nice. We are backwards here. Winter is for cruising
     
  19. You can cruise here if you have ski-mobile. :rolleyes:
     
  20. I have always been down on coupsters for the reasons you state. The only one I have never liked is at:
    http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/1930-coupster.959503/
    It not only looks good but he picked up the longer doors. A lot of work and my hat goes off to the builder. If it was me I would spend the extra money up front and start with a roadster but I sure like the way this one came out.

    I'm glad I was wrong. I've seen too many poor attemps compared to nice conversions. The window post were throwing me off and from the 3/4 rear it's hard to the judge door lenth. I even looked at your album and you had me guessing.
    That was fun................next.
     
  22. Coupe because that what im building currently...
