My next car will be a CW Components 34 5 window built Bonneville style. Body being built right now - should be ready for me to pick up in approx 8 weeks. Glen
You can not beat a Wescott body
Anybody have pics of Steve Parks coupe?, he passed away last year...built a beautiful 32
My '34. Originally built in the late '70's, called "Fly'n Flathead". Purple, featured in SR in '80 or '81. In Lexington KY now.
This Wescott bodied 34 belonged to a friend of mine (RIP Arden).
One of the best looking 3 windows. Where did you get those front Nerf Bars?
Thanks, it's a fun car. I'd like to take credit for making the Nerf Bars, but in reality I got them off of an e-Bay listing many years ago. Haven't seen them listed for quite awhile.
Had a chance to buy that when Jeff finally sold it. Was a great car. CJ sold Arden the frame for that car. Arden was a great guy. He drove the wheels off that thing.
I really like this post. I think people are more likely to take risks and build more unique cars from glass.
I know I've said this before but Arden really was a nice man.
My high school mate introduced me first to Jeff about 1971, I remember being in awe of his 38 Chevy coupe, then I saw it in the Portland Roadster Show and it was such a beauty under the lights, then met Jim and saw the cars he trimmed, thought I had met greatness.
I put some seat time in the 34, quite a fun car, drove it a bit on a Pleasanton trip, it was a very traditionally built car and so nicely finished that people didn't know it was a glass car, the chassis was built by Jim Meyer, drove just like an old hot rod should.
Yep, it was a well built car that most would think was a steel car as it was so well done. I remember watching Ardun run the thing at Woodburn and showing all the young people a thing or two, lol. Jeff does pretty good with his little glass Vicky now at Woodburn.
Jim was a great guy as well. Always loved seeing him driving around in the 34 5 window he had in any weather. He did the upholstery on Taboo when we redid the car. It was the second to last car he did before the cancer finally got him. He was a great guy as well.
This is a cracker. Custom body from C&W in Australia.
