    nice! I like all the little details
     
  3. Fan shroud is pretty trick, what is the generator/fan setup? Does it cool well with that big cube motor?

    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!!! ;):D

    Hey there! Imagine my surprise when I see you on the HAMB. Congrats again on the T. You have WAY outdone yourself, my friend.

  18. 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.

    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!!

    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 !

    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.
