    well almost under its own power, as some have known iv been toying with the idea of slapping a champion 6 into my roadster to break norm. Waiting on a set of 6.00-15's for the front from coker,

    here are some pictures about 30 minutes ago of the "new" build

    what i started with

    Also raised the ass end 3'' for a better stance, after i get the coker 600's itll drop the front 1'' 3/8s fromt where it sits now

    How straight were the body panels before you apply primer; I having a ball straighting my panels. How much were the radials. Will you be running a hood? What radiator and steering set up are you going to run. oh where the front frame horns??

    Ill be running a model-a hood top with my own fabbed sides, using a "mustang rad" the only newer piece on the car. using stock model-a steering set up. the frame horns will be in the classifieds soon, looks faster without em. ;)

    OPINION ALERT!!!! the car doesn't look faster w/o the frame horns. It looks BLUNT. You know, squared off, unstreamlined, i.e. like a brick:confused: Of course opinions are like assholes:)

    maybe you didnt catch the wink.

    I just picked up some 600.15's off the coker website and am going to have them changed out tomarrow so a better stance will be seen in comming days.

    coming along good does the engine run now ?
     
  19. nice work so far...i like the ride height alot. nice to see its not scrapping belly. do you have any pics of rolling frame without body? just curious to see how you added strength to the frame. i'm hoping to put something very similar together.

  20. Seriously too bitchin' Dude !!! An inliner AND it's a Studey !!! If you aren't familiar with them , Cathcart Studebaker has all the speed stuff for those puppies . Kudos for the "dare to be different" attitude !!
