    Model A's are square and boxy, they look awesome with a hard chop but still not aerodynamic......if your gonna try and cheat the wind you have to do what these guys did,,,I dig the coupe, it makes you look twice....kind of like Steven tyler, cant tell if he's an old lady or ....a dude from behind.

    This is the best looking Model A Ford I've ever seen. The vision and skill in this vintage racing inspired hot rod is just amazing. Can't wait to see it on the road.

    Brady,
    Yes it started as a 30-31 coupe.
    Now it has parts of 28-29, 32, 33,34,36, 46 & 48 all blended together.

    The A and the Model 40 are both spectacular.

    It's sad, but I expect the sleek work on the late model from you all. But the A is unbelievable - wow that's some talent, work and time all added up.
