    this is a car i was messing with about 10 years ago basically just mocked it up to get an idea of what direction to go then moved on to other things ,took it apart and piled it into a trailer before getting any further than it looks in this pic ! . i think i'm going to use the body ,part of the frame, and a few other odds and ends i have here to throw together a low budget beach bomber . mildly hopped up banger,mechanical brakes,full hood,nose, single seat, canvas tonneau cover etc.etc. should be a fun car and maybe even cool enough to make the cut for the 2015 TROG

    I'm in. You guys remember this little jewel? Never been to the beach yet but have wanted to forever. Decided today that this is the year. Pulled her from the corner and started tearing her apart this evening after work. Will be purely traditional with early 21 stud flatty, Eddie Meyer & Thickstun goodies, 18" wires and mechanical brakes. Will start a build thread in the next week or so. Hope to get accepted!!

    Question... Do I need to go ahead and officially submit my entry or wait 'till she's a little farther along?
    Thanks...

    Well, not sure if my roadster will make the cut this year or not... But either way I have been having a ball with my little banger roadster this year so far. I built a dirt track in my back yard for my club to have a little fun on. If you build it they will come! :) image.jpg

    The Dirty Dutchmen are putting our 2015 TROG entries to the test. Just finished our third weekend of circle track racing here in Pennsylvania at the Jalopy Showdown (running the #67 and #7a/w). The week prior we ran the #67 at Circle M Ranch Speedway. Our quest for more speed continues as we start a new race engine build. Would be an honor to race down the sandy speedway in Wildwood!

    lockwoodkustoms. Your coupe looks fast standing still , but personally I wouldn't want to drive through any traffic lights , race only? Look forward to seeing it at the beach in October.

    Kiwi 4d Thanks! I have always wanted to build an A coupe like this and this show really was one of the biggest reasons for me doing so. :)

    I entered my new (beater) '32 Roadster for this year's TROG, and like everyone else I hope I'll be chosen. I've wanted to bring something to this event that I could participate with since the very first one, and I finally feel like I've got a car that can fit the look that Mel, Bobby, and the rest of the Oilers are shooting for.

    I'm going to put numbers on the doors later on, and probably pull the windshield. This is a street roadster first and foremost, but like most postwar '32 roadster hot rods, it can be made race ready in short order.

    I've only been driving it for three days now, so it will probably be a lot more dialed in by October. It runs pretty damn good already, though.

    Anyone have any tips on where to stay? What's not booked up already?
