    Ran across this thread discussing the difference s between tail dragger and lead sled. Here is my candidate. Is it a taildragger? Has no bags just air shocks. Is it a lead sled? I did a majority of the bodywork in lead. Whatever it is this is the way I remember the cars from the day. I'm 75 now so I can remember the 50s and 60s. Had this Chevy since 66 and finally got it the way l wanted. Dave Jenkins 57 was an influence. Sorry to hear of his passing. 1483998377730.jpg

  5. Hey Von Brush, love the ragtop--I'm sure Dave would be flattered as you did a great job on your car. It would have been really cool to do a feature of your car with Dave's together for a magazine like Kustoms Illustrated. Two of the nicest '57 Chevy customs in the country.
    I just read about your car in the Kustom Kemps of America 1980-1992 book. Neat that it was featured in there. E

    my 39 ford. chopped and channeled. lowered with blocks and cut coils. rides smooth. drags some. all seems filled and corners rounded. I call her Nadine from the Chuck Berry song. 39 rear.JPG 39 side.JPG
