    You're thinking for the later self energising brakes.

    Earlier stuff, all the big bits to the front.

    I promise.

    My dad, brother and I worked really hard to get this thing done enough to support Thee Emperors Flathead Run. I would be lying if I didn't say it put a big strain on all of us. Without the help of my dad it never would of even came close to getting there.

    You are welcome, you all deserve an ATABOY! I can imagine how stressful it might have been, but I would say it will be one of your favorite memories in the years to come. Building Hot Rods is fun but it is more fun when you share the experience with friends and family and beating impossible odds too.....

    So when are you gonna rip back into it? Judging by the fab work you've done so far I'm sure your not finished.

    Thanks a lot Chris, Working with family always makes things seem easier and more fun. Your dad, brother and you sure crank out the early fords!

    We can't make Swindlers, prior obligations. We will make it next year for sure, looks like a blast.

    Thanks man! It does sound way nastier than any stocker i've heard. I just remembered... you drove the panel truck, now you can use it for deliveries.

    Congratulations on the wedding, thanks for including me in it. Hope you two are having a blast!

    Thanks. Its gone as far as i'm taking it this year. There is a more important project in the shop than this. I'll probably drag it back out in spring and get it really roadworthy. I think you guys will like what I have planned for it... at least I am.

    I'm not sure why, but the multi-quote wouldn't work. Sorry for all the single quotes.

    I got the roadster unloaded and proceeded to run the ever loving dogshit out of it up and down the street. It's a lot of fun to drive... I mean a lot!!! It pulls strong through all gears, great oil pressure, low water temp. My brother came by and he ripped up and down the street a few times too.

    This is my brother having a blast.

    Seeing the side profile pic with the mini channel, my eye is immediately drawn forward to the grille. It looks too tall, like it also needs to come down a like amount as the body. The grille also looks like it is tilting forward at the top. Just an observation....cool roadster.
