I like most customs, including each one of these tail draggers. The cars show both genius and creativity.
I can tail drag ....but also lay it flat..
Been looking for my '39 Chevy that I had to sale back in '09, we think we have found it still in the same condition, my friend who knows about it is trying to get in touch with the guy, cross your fingers for me to get it back...
" ZOMBIE" did this rendition for me.
Thanks , I did all the work you see before I was forced to sell.
Playing with some ideas to make my '47 a 40's style taildragger, The Moose has helped with some Photoshop work, it may be higher in the front, all the things that are going to be done will be reversible.
wow can you post more pictures please
My ‘40 Chrysler In a few pieces right now. Getting split exhaust, fixing some leaks, and some skirts.
A second, just because..
It's time for a Bttt...this Taildragging profile is Traditional and one of the many profiles these Cruisers were depending on Period and local and regional inspirations...
...Hamber @VANDENPLAS is currently working on a suitable stance on his recently acquired Merc and at this point a nose up lowered stance is the current plan...where he will feel the right vibe will be a mix of Tradition and his overall feel of the look...
The image above is an inspiration I did based on where he is going with it...there are already 3" lowering blocks in the rear...this form of lowering is a more Traditional approach as opposed to the more modern bags as they're called...
Finally got a roof on it.
EDIT- Found my answer in post #572 of this thread. Thank you
