    Not sure what a bop top is, but here's mine with the top.

    Love those model A roadsters!

    A couple of my current running roadster. 296" flathead.

    My new build. -28 roadster on original -32 frame. Dry lake pre -47 style.
    Those model A bodies do not fit straight on a -32 frame. :D

    Even if I do like bangers, A-V8 is the way to go for me.
    Hope the crowd at VLV remembers this one after all these years... ;)

    Here is one I used to own, sold it to fund another project.... Still have all the parts and pieces for a 29 on original '32 rails with a Cad 331 done all early lakes style a couple years down the road... This was a fun project!

    That green one with the white headers on the Hemi is actually a coupster.

    Its the Lieb Roadster, built by Jimmy Shine. Big inspiration for me, too. Love the elongated hood. Will probably do the same to my coupester after I cut the body down to help the proportions.
     
  16. I'm getting ready to fit the windshield and posts on my o/t 'glass '29 body. I notice in some of the pics there is a bolt running fore and aft on the posts, as well as the two typical side bolts. Is that just an attempt to keep the posts tight? Is there something I should know here? Thanks, Mike

    I looked thru the pics and didn't see any bolts running front to back...? I'm not sure why someone would do that?

    Anyway, here's a few more I found.

    Yes it is... Tell us the story on the frame extentions. Is that part of a '32 side rail or custom built?
