    Thats my grandfathers car, please call me 989-205-7345. he bought the car from a family in detroit in the late 70 early 80"s. it was in a garage in the city. I lived with my grandfather and this was our project, when he passed his kids sold off all his collection. i would love to see her as this was my start to the rodding world. you scored a piece of american history and a life long love of mine. I'm pleased to see how much you care for her. i live in battle creek and would love the chance to she one last time. thank you, Bill.

    Awesome. I definitely will be in touch with you wildbillorr. The car is indeed at the Detroit Autorama this weekend. It is in the basement in Joker Fabrications and Josh Shaw's booth. It would be awesome if you could come and see the car. I think a ride is in order sometime this summer.

    :)Grats Dave, ! I can't imagine what it's like to have a car on the cover of a magazine. :cool::D
     
  8. It's rare that these traditional type cars get me excited any more. I mean, you can only make a BLT so many ways before it isn't a BLT anymore.

    You, my friend... figured out a way to make a BLT different.

    I love it.

  9. WOW! That's quite a complement Sam. Thank you!

    Wildbillorr beat me to the punch, but I wanted to post how neat it was to get to meet him and hear his memories of the coupe. I was kind of cool how the whole thing worked out and how he made it over to see the car on Sunday.

    We hooked him up with a poster and a t-shirt to take home with him. I'm looking forward to trying to get together with him this summer and go for a ride in his grandpa's old coupe.

  12. Hopefully this is just a glitch in the new upgrade... I have faith it will get straightened out. ;-) 382837d1308805440-91-vw-diesel-90a-alternator-mod-thisthreadisworthless.jpeg

    My Dad was at Milan Saturday for the Detroit Dragway Reunion. He saw the coupe and shot a video of it on the track, thought you'd like to see it.

    Thanks for posting Mattbee. Now the whole world knows how slow my coupe is. ;):D

    No, thanks really. We didn't get time slips so I had no idea what it really ran. Everyone there I asked told me something different.

    Thus is the first 1/4 mile pass I have made in the car. I'm OK with the time, but know there is A LOT left in the car.

    I have a 3.31 gear set in the quick change and my tires are 31.5 inches tall. That's great for buzzing down the highway, but hardly makes for quick times at the track. You can hear in the video that I left soft and short-shifted 2nd. The car sounds like it bogs at the shift and spends a loooong time in 3rd gear. Never get to 4th before crossing the line.

    I really need to throw my 3.89 gear in it and bolt on my 28" tall pie crusts. Things could get fun then! :D

    I sure hope Ryan is able to get pics linked back up in this thread soon. I would hate to see the whole build thread lost due to no pics...

    Have faith my brothers.

    Last week I was assured by Ryan that they are currently working on this issue.

    I hope see some progress soon.

    If so, I probably start another build thread on the '33 truck I'm redoing for the Detroit Autorama in March.

    To tide you guys over, here's a pic of the coupe taken at the Race of Gentlemen in New Jersey this fall.

    So glad to have pictures back in all of my threads.

    I big Thanks to Ryan for getting this issue resolved.

    Look for another build thread from me soon. I'm just finishing up on a full-fendered '33 Ford truck with a 331 Caddy mill. I'm thrashing to have it done for the Detroit Autorama in 2 weeks. I hope to post a build review thread soon.
