    I'm not sure if I ever posted mine on this thread b4? Here's the one I built in 98 and still have it right out my back door. I freshened it up in 2014, so this is how it looks other than having a bunch of stuff stacked on it to keep them of the ground. It's a better cruiser though when I have the CQC under it, I swiped it out for another project, but will put it back under soon. I gotta put more miles on her again. ;).[​IMG]

  4. I like it with the fenders, too.

    Those extended cab bodies almost need a small section job to reduce the vertical "thickness".

    I don't think I can agree with the sectioning, I have a buddy building one like that and it looks about perfect to me.
    Sitting in it, it is apparent that it will be very comfortable and the seating position and body height will also be just right.
    Way more roomy than my T :D

    Right....did you ever sit in one?
     
  7. What ISN'T roomier than your T, Blue! :D

    Seriously, a boner? It doesn't matter whether I've sat in one - that's the most non-sequitur question I've come across. I am still of the opinion that they could benefit from a slight cut. Did you bother to compare my rendering with the original image?

    :D Yup, pretty much everything. :) But it won't be too bad with the 4" I added behind the doors.
    And it's going to make up for it in the fun level. :)

  9. If Larry has added 4'', then mine is smaller............and it feels it.(we are still talking vehicle body size aren't we) JW

    I think we could all benefit from adding 4".......

    I didn't catch what you had done. Probably because of the smaller size of the original pic. Looks great.

    I had to go back and look at both pics to see the changes you made. Subtle enough it`s hard to catch but it does clean up the lines of the truck.

    Here are a couple shots of my '28 rpu. Picked it up in August and have been picking away at the missing sheet metal since. Building a traditional AV8 with a '39 flathead and '39 top load transmission. Looking forward to seeing it driving!

    Here's one from 1959, by Riemer Calhoun Jr. This one inspires me. ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1445775751.162608.jpg ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1445775809.386086.jpg ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1445775828.339561.jpg

  26. Anybody have a picture of the "MY Auto Upholstery" pink '29 from the late '50s-early '60s. I always liked the absurdity of a pink roadster pick-up with white walls in that era. I think it had one spread in the "little pages" around '58 or '59. I'll bet Dean Lowe remembers it.
     
  27. Here's a photo that Kenergy posted some time ago.
