    Some pics of my new Hot Rod, 1931 A extended cab Hot Rod Diesel Truck.
    I will be running a 4bt with a Turbo 400 transmission and a 10 bolt with a 2.41 rear and 31'' tall rear tires. (looking for good mileage) And some nice road trips.

    I love how diesel has been slowly making it's way into the HAMB culture. This is the 3rd or 4th car I've seen that's gonna use a diesel mill and it's really cool.

    This is going to be cool.
  11. Should be scary fun and get ridiculously good milage too - a 4BT moving a model A is like you or I moving a piece of paper.
  12. Cool plan! I'm a little in diesel mode too. Been lookin for a 4bt but good luck in Canada, not many around. I've got thoughts in my pumpkin on a little diesel/ 5 speed ride...
