My good Friend John (Jadeidol) has been building this RPU for the past 10 years. He has had dreams of running for AMBR for years...in a few days that will become a reality. Just like 2 years ago, this roadster is club built- everyone chipped in and helped in one way or another. Machine work, fabrication, engine, trans, body work, paint...In fact, a few guys have been putting in 18-24 hour days trying to get it done this past week!!! They officially called it "finished" this morning at 5:30 after another all nighter, and got packed and hit the road. They have to have the car there tomorrow. It has been a long road (especially the last month), as we all have regular jobs, family's and little money...but huge drive! John works at a machine shop and designed most of these parts himself and drew them up on CAD. Almost every part is hand made, but the early Ford influence is huge. Think of a 1940 concept sport roadster, or Edsel's 1 off speedster. Starting with an original 1928-29 roadtser pickup, this is where John took it. Car is flathead powered, 39 trans and a Columbia rear end. Every part is modified...even the wide 5 wheels. John, I and several other Emperors will be down there. Help root us on, and lets see if the hoodlums can take this thing I guarantee there will not be a car more traditional, art deco, or well thought out. Heres a few crappy pics from this morning before loading. I'll post more as we go.... Introducing the Woodward Roadster. You guys are the first in the world to see it.
