Your ringtone should be that flathead running
Man am I old. I would have smashed that thing into the ground!
I love the sound of a flat motor, that's what's in mine.
Damn.... Sure sounds and looks great!!
"hello this is Rachel from card services........."
nice looking car.
Really needs to be wet sanded and polished, but even so... it looks great out in the sun. Can't wait to see it with interior.
Nice. I wouldn't have guessed you having such a 'stock' ringtone.
One more reason I have a "not so smart phone" ( all it does is make telephone calls) and leave it turned off. The only reason I carry the damn thing is for emergencies. I'm a grumpy old man who doesn't care to be "connected" every second of the day and I hate talking on the phone anyway.
The Ringtone Roadster.....it'll go down in history. Ol' flatty sounds great!
you could have chosen the "ahooga horn" ringtone... this flathead is nasty!
Flatty sounds wicked........
Keith trying to spray you with gravel............priceless.
Will Keith build that 5 window? Looking forward to the new thread.
Keith is just a figure head and a name... Sort of like Queen Elizabeth.
I do all the work around here.
I am so looking forward to the 32 5w thread.
This is what the HAMB is all about, traditional car candy.
How's about a sneak peak of the interior? Cato killin' it...
Hoping to get the car back this week so we can do a full on photo shoot this weekend or next week...
Another shot from Cato.
Great roadster. Wonderful trad interior in a great color combo. Thanks. TEB
This car is Perfect!
Love the cover...
Any mounting / detail pics on it?
Can't wait to see it on the road!
Lots are coming soon. A full feature is my #1 priority next week.
Looking forward to that Ryan. This thing is beautiful.
The cover finishes this car as well. Nice work.
WOW this got away quick! I missed a lot of this build but one thing i,d like to add is something about flatheads i love,is and you see it in the engine fire up! CHASSIS SHAKE! and i,ll explain it like this,everyone knows the stock flathead guy who,s motor runs like a watch,quiet,tick,tick, and they say the v12 lincolns can run that smooth you can stand a coin on end atop the aircleaner and run it without falling sideways.but you make a cranky flathead that gently shakes the car side to side at idle then barks and bites like a homeless hungry street dog,thats what i,ve been addicted too since i was a kid,I absolutely love that change in a flatheads persona when a good cam kicks in,this engine has it,i love it.jeckel and hyde.Nothing irritates me more then a built cammed flathead under driven. Great job Johnny
Shall I call him the "Queen", or is it proper to go with Elizabeth?
I'm going out to the shop, gonna set fire to my 29

So the car came back from Cato today. I had planned to do a full photo shoot of the car this week for a feature, but I'm going out of town on Thursday and my schedule got a little too compressed. As such, the photo shoot will have to wait until I get back.
Until then, here's some sneak peaks of the interior.
