    It looks great. Would love to see more pictures. Do you have any extra exterior door handles or know where any are? I am looking to add the handles and hood sides back on my 32.

    Is the rear end mounted to the rear? Wheels appear to be too far back??

    Very nice. Thanks for keeping it mostly Stude, & not hacking it like it is/was worthless. Beautiful car, roadster looks like it will be killer. Mostly Stude for that one, too - I hope? Might these show up at the Stude Nats, when it's in South Bend? :D .

    Wow thats nice. Its not common to see a rockne hot rod thats well constructed. Looks way better than the ford beside it with the rear toolbox. I think its a ford anyways. Nice color combo also.

    nice coupe its pretty amazing that you have a coupe and a roadster dad has had his 32 4 door sedan for 25+ years. Not a car you see many of at least around here. I can't count how many times people look at the radiator cap and ask if its a Rolls Royce:p

    The seats are from a triumph t3. They fit just right!

    Tell me the camber is also an optical dilusion?

    Great looking oddball car!

    Camber looks to be from Ford axle/Chevy spindles. Saw a guy bend the 'smile' out of a '34 dropped axle with a similar setup...

    Other than that...This Rockne rocks!

    It looks to be a nice car. I'm not fully buying the optical illusion thing. If so then those pictures should be deleted and the photographer needs a lesson.
    I'd like to see a proper front on and full side on shot of the car to see a true representation of the look.
    That side view with the rear axle appearing way back from where it should be just looks like crap.
