    The Front springs are along side the frame allowing easy stance adjusting as you have pointed out on other Hotrods... @Six Ball was that style of running parallel leaf a Standard Feature on those old cars back in the 20s or Hotrod Innovation?​

    I don't know of any car that mounted the front springs that way but some had the rear springs out there. One issue would be moving the spring farther apart on the axle and potential wheel clearance problems. On this car the frame has been narrowed so the springs look like they are on the stock place on the axle. I'm am in the process of figuring out how the parallel springs on my Chevy roadster will mount. The Ford buggy spring set up males it easier to get them low but most cars of the day had some sort of parallel springs. Mine doesn't need to be really low.

    I'm thinking it puts a different kind of load on the frame since it comes off the side as opposed to under...so beefing to accommodate the potential twisting force might have to be considered.

    As for axles, wider with perch locations outbrd of the original are a potential solution as well and in the land of Jalopy this is how things are often addressed...:D

    :rolleyes:...Pat Leighton as a POW sketched up a Hotrod and after release built it when he got back to the homeland...a well built highly detailed Hotrod that saw Dry Lakes action...just another part of the vibrant mix of Wild going on in those postwar years...it was an incredible time...

    This Hotrod reminds me of Jimmy Summers 32 with it's highly modded grille but each have their own unique identity...

    Question...Has anyone saw that sketch...I seem to remember one, but have never saw it again...

    Here's a more aerodynamic view...think of it as ram air...I wonder what his reasoning was...Art?...incredible workmanship...

    I wonder if Pat's Design and Metalworking skills were acquired during Wartime...he had amazing fit and finish skills.

    Really neat Hotrod Roadster behind Pat's 32...Real Low...Nice Stance...maybe a Tracknose...

    It was shared by the Late Hamber Rockerhead in a great thread on Old Hotrod Photo's and identified by @Jimmy B at link below...

  25. As an artist and metal worker I have always liked this car, I think the nose was a combination of art and function , I can't keep up with all the cars I've liked over the years, is this car still around?

    That's always the 16 million dollar question...It may turn up in an estate auction a dusty recluse from the late 50's...:confused:... one can only hope...it really had aviation written all over it and it did pretty respectably at the lakes...
