    crossed my mind this morning that you guys would dig this little hot rod.

    I've seen him around town before but the wheels are always in motion and I never got a chance to catch up with him.

    Well this last month at our cruise in- our shop hosts a cruise in every fourth Friday of the month in Lee's summit Missouri- he rolled in! IMG_7076.JPG 394 olds mated to a Lincoln trans and a Culver City quick change!
    IMG_7077.JPG Love these headers! IMG_7078.JPG

    It's got 46-8 brakes on it, looks like an early spring hung behind the quicky and the front is spring in front as well.

    Really cool guy who had tons of stories.
    The body is all steel, I stole some photos a friend took of him bringing the body home IMG_7122.JPG and one of the roadster and some friends in 55 when Kansas City opened the drag strip IMG_7125.JPG
    He's full of stories I can't wait to hear :)

    Thought it cool that I came across him the same time @cactus1 found his new roadster!

    He's into more traditional style fenderless hotrods and wishes there were more around so I'm trying to get him introduced to more of the local guys and see if he won't come down to the hamb drags with us!

    I'll post more to this thread when I get more info and stories but figured for now you'd dig what I have :)

    Very cool "T", not real keen on the rolling stock though. Thanks for sharing her.

    Talking with a friend he was one of the founders of the KCTA I'm looking forward to hearing some more about his history with hot rodding.

    Yeah the wheels and tires aren't really my thing but he's had it on the road longer than my parents have been alive and drives it in literally any weather any time he wants so I'll let it slide.

    That being said I'm trying to borrow a set of big and little Firestone's on 40 ford wheels to throw on it for a look see

    @Mo rust I wonder if your auction roadster wasn't in some of the same photos as this one

    @T&A Flathead yeah my friend that introduced me says the hood on this roadster is actually off of one of rays old cars. They ran around together a bunch and even has a ton of old photos. Apparently they used to go to Salina to drag race before Kansas City had a track.

    We are welding in the motor mounts on the model A Sunday afternoon so I had my friend invite him and the roadster over. I'd really like to get this guy back in the loop with the traditional hot Rodders in the area.
