    Pretty impressive coupester. Could a T Roadster end up wearing those cool ass wheels?;)

    Another interesting combination of turtle deck and roadster parts I can take inspiration from. Clean original T bodies must have already been drying up by the 50's for a guy to put in the amount of work it took to mate these two together like that. I like it.

    what a neat little car
    the body parts collection lends a lot more room than Ford's roadster
    not being a flathead guy but,
    isn't 306 inches big for a flathead?
    that must have been a hoot to drive

    I was never a big fan of the T,but in the last 4 or 5 years my eyes have been opened.

    Bob Hamke moved to south Florida shortly after your notes. He raced at our local oval tracks an had his shop in Hialeah/Miami .
    I knew Bob Hamke an his son Robert jr.who also became a super great fabracater as well,along with a very good race car driver,the stuff that Bob did was very inovative,anything he needed he designed an built,he was a big factor in race cars in Florida in the end of 50 an into 60's/70's. He's the guy I asked when I needed advice about making some hotrod part fit to another it did not belong with. :D

  10. 2 "T" features on consecutive days!?!?! Methinks Ryan might have been bitten by the T-roadster bug!

    So when's the new "T" project going to be unveiled? :D

    He used the "Coupe" rear section of the body because it was longer that the T Roadster body....more leg room

    Just to add,this mod racer designed an built by Bob Hamke was nearly undefeaded. Take note that with all the many ground braking things done,this also has twin turbos. Driving is the{Sir} Roddy Perry,highist win to starts score of any racer ever !
