I dig it. Nicely done
nice! I like all the little details
Fan shroud is pretty trick, what is the generator/fan setup? Does it cool well with that big cube motor?
That's a great looking ride.
Great details- that thing is just over the top!!
Personally not feeling the color...not into orange...but MAN the car itself is frickin' sweet!
I'm a total sucker for a Lakes Modified and you just made my night!!!
How's the interior going to be done?
Great little car. way too nice to take out on the salt.
Yeah, I like it. UT orange. University of Tennessee that is...
I like everything about your 27 roadster.Nice job.
Hey there! Imagine my surprise when I see you on the HAMB. Congrats again on the T. You have WAY outdone yourself, my friend.
Having been around this car, the pics don't do it justice. Great job Bob.
you owe a ride to two more kids the seat open any time you have time
Wow that is a nice Roadster !!!!!
very cool little car ! whats up w the guage surround looks like it says edelbrock ? i've never seen such a piece
The attention to detail doesn't go unnoticed and excellent workmanship combine to make a killer little hot rod!
The color grabs your attention! HRP
That is a real hot rod. The color looks great and everything on the car works with everything else on it.
killer bucket! I dig the chrome tank and the stripes too.
i made the dash panel out of scrap intake , cut the edelbrock out and welded it to piece i machined its a s.o.f. piece sh.t off floor it matches my heads
i made the tank out stainless theres lots of stainless in this car steering wheel ,pedals.all mounts (frame), shifter door handles and they all match all s.o.f.
i like it ! its the little details like that that tie a car together
click bobhull and go to my album
Hey Guy's, Check out the Dash >> I bet the people from "EDELBROCK" are wondering who he bought It from???
Check out the Fins on the Intake Manifold Between the Carbs.. OH !!
What happened the the Generator Mount on the Front of the Manifold??
HMMM... Pretty sneakey....
Keep looking at this car & You will see some very Crafty Work.. Like the Front. Lateral Friction Shocks..
I am sure we will be seeing more of this "T" in the magazines...
Good Job, you don't see cars like this one that are built from scratch..
I'll bet "NOT MANY BROWN TRUCK'S made deliveries to this address!!
as old school as i can get it. off white with orange piping
just looked through your photo album ! alot of nice subtle tricks ! especially like how you grafted on a 90 elbow to the waterpump so you didnt have a garbage looking hose ! motormounts and alt hung low are nice pieces too !
water pump is 409, small gm alternator, I made the fan blades( 12 1/2 inch) . Keeping it around 195 when in the 80s above 90 it can get up to 220 still messing restrictors. only 400 miles on it, gets better every day. stainless shroud
A couple more things that are hard to see in pictures: almost no chrome at all on this car, mostly nickel plate, or aluminum and stainless ploished. The 3rd brake lights are LED hidden in the holes on the frame above the rear spring, real bright to add a little safety.
