good stuff, Brian. Way to persevere.
Brian, your roadster is an absolute jewel - thanks so much for showing us your craftwork and what a great story.
Shame about losing a couple of bearings on your 265, but your replacement motor sounds like it'll do you OK.
Thanks for posting.
The safety corridor between Raton and Texline just about had us shut down when we rode that direction in June. I would have much rather done that trip in a Roadster.
Beautiful car sir.
Great work, great story. thanks.
I can hardly wait to see this thing painted. That interior is really gonna pop.
Yes and the holes filled.
Thanks for taking the time to record, write, photograph and publish your story.
Thanks for posting this Brian, good read. I thought it looked like a great start to a hot rod with the body just sitting on the rails! Excellent car and workmanship!
The little scoops are actually boat hull vents.
Although I could not find a picture of those exact ones,
these two are pretty sweet.
Nice try, but that's not it.
I never thought they wouldn't be non-automotive parts. Brian, could you maybe give us a hint as to whether these scoops are originally manufactured for automobiles or for something outside those?
Fancy outhouse roof vents??
The upholstery was done by a good friend of our family. David Devers in Waco, TX.
How about this Brian???
badass hotrod,great story
You need that other video...man you were SCREAMIN through the gears!! I try to do that in my fleathead stuff...but they don't rev like that
Man I remember following your posts from Texas to Tacoma WA in the coupe. I loved it!! It was like I was there. Then to see your coupe at Tacoma's Hotrodarama was so fricken cool.
Now this!! You my friend are living life large!!!
Brian, GREAT ROADSTER & A OUTSTANDING STORY. Thank's for taking time to write and post it for all to read. I do wish you could have made it to Bonneville this year in it as I would have really like to have seen it in person. Maybe next year...
See ya on the salt..
OK the brake scoops are attatched to the bottom of my kitchen sinks... I would take a pic but it's dark & scary under there.
Badass bending on the exhaust system Brutha! Nice detail. If this Hot Rod gig doesn't work out you have real promise in the plumbing arena.
Thanks for taking the time to post not only the build but the following trials and tribulations. Bloody great read Bass.
Bass what color blue is that on the wheels? Because I think I just found my frame color

Scoops are from a meat grinder....XL please......
VERY nice! Threads like this always make me wish i'd take more time to photograph things as I go
I can't give a hint this soon. That would make it too easy!
Not even close.
Stromberg scoops are way too big to fit on a brake backing plate.
Not close either, Ken.
Not related to a meat grinder in any way.
Keep trying guys...one of you will figure it out eventually. I have faith in the sleuths on the HAMB.
It's Kookie Car Blue.
Very cool. I dig the story too.
This thread is a keeper.
Man, thats some BEAUTIFUL country. Where is Cimmarron Canyon? Looks like around here, but I know it isn't.
