    I like most customs, including each one of these tail draggers. The cars show both genius and creativity.

  14. 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. 2.jpg

    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...

    :rolleyes:...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...
