Cool thread....any pics of a 30-31 with a bob top style rag top?
Here's my 1928 Banger Roadster...top off for the summer and top on ready for the drive to Autorama in a few weeks!
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.
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!
A few more...
I few from Detroit this weekend.
That green one with the white headers on the Hemi is actually a coupster.

Yeah, so is the white one w/ 17 on the door. Cool in their own way so.... OK in my book.
I concur. I'll be calling my coupster a roadster when all is said and done anyways.

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.
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.
great pics guys
Ain't that the tits!
Not real barnfind,and Unfortunately not mine,but only second time in my life i see a unrestored A Roadster in real
Yes it is... Tell us the story on the frame extentions. Is that part of a '32 side rail or custom built?
Here is mine as it sits right now. Its currently banger powered, but it will become an AV8 with time.
Adam, that car is great. I wouldn't change much....
Custom built tubular frame, side panels added.
That's what I thought, but it looks perfect.
high and mighty! love it....
OK, Strick.... Show your pics.
