    With a new Indiana title and temporary license, it is time to celebrate with some pictures.
    The car has Essex rails, Ford running gear, a turboed '40 Flathead. The body started with a '29 Ford cowl with the rest hand made. Upholstry is also homemade, do you get the theme.
    Many panels were made at various Metalmeet.com events in oblong, Il. More construction pictures are available on Metalmeet.com , search track roadster.

    That's not nearly enough fan fair for a car that awesome.

    Any chance you're taking it to Indy for the Road Rocket Rumble?

    Gunswanted,
    I really dont have many miles on it. Have been changing carbs to get it to idle right and ended with a large holly single barrel from a 300 cu in Ford 6. The engine is just a stock 221 cu in from a friends 40 Ford that went small block Chev.

    That is a great track roadster. Just beautiful. Great work. I am originally from Brazil. We are close enough that I may get to see it in person sometime.
     
  14. Very nice. I'm strongly in favor of home built and pushing your skills. Great job!
