    Maybe you can get someone to shoot a short video of it running for us :)

    My 54 Chevy burned last Labor day coming home from the Greaseramma in Kansas City. This build has targeted this party an I intend to make it. The alley my garage is on has some serious ruts to the top and a mud puddle at the bottom. It drags the underside a bit.

  6. Love it! Greaserama I assume? Is that Rob's coupe?

    *typing at the same time!
     
  7. I couldn't be happier for you, Dick. It IS hilarious that you run louvered hood sides on your 34 chevy and I run 34 chevy hood sides on my 34 ford. What is not hilarious is your hot rod runs and drives after less than a year and my hot rod is still in the shop after 9 years...but I'm getting closer!
    Hope you make the Labor Day target date. Car is killer!

    Most of the reason I plan to go to greaserama this year is in that video! Such a cool ride!

    Yes that's Robs coupe at the curb. He just did a 2,500 mile vacation to the 4 Corners. I hope mine runs as dependable as his.

    I put a 20 gallon tank in this one. It should go a ways no matter the MPG.

    I really dig the wheels and the body!! What kind of wheels are they, and what size?
    You do nice work.

    The front brakes are they from a Motorbike? I'm no fan of how they look, but I guess there is a good reason to running them.

    This is written as positive as possible, and I'm not here to be the "trad police". Just a curious lad, I guess.

    Volvo those are Harley v rod wheels and brakes up front adapted to 54 Chevy spindles if I'm correct. And the backs looks to be rockets new mag solid look a likes with the new Indy style tires. I'll see this wicked machine tomorrow :D

    It was good see`in your car at the Turd show. I saw your Chevy again at the Greasearamma show last year on Sunday before it burned up. I missed this show for the first time in about 8 years or more of go`in. Your grille looks great. Continue on.

    Still working on my 34 STD 3WC, bought a couple of parts in Bowling Green KY on Friday. Maybe someday it will hit the road again.

    I love it...I love seeing the welds, the personal style, and innovation. Don't change it.
