    I have always liked the no-apologies dirt track roadster look of the '27 on '32 rails. All business, no frills.

    Yes, this was an exciting time in the evolution of circle track roadster racing and hot rodding in general. But never a V860, always the biggest and best V8 that could be built in order to be competitive. Circle track roadster racing is a long-ignored aspect of hot rodding, having been almost totally eclipsed by straight line top speed racing at the lakes. The roadsters evolved differently, with some of the most beautifully proportioned roadsters having been built for the rough and tumble dirt track ovals. Good luck with your project.

    1960's glass tub and cut down Model A bed. Paint is lime green with a fairly heavy flake.

    T roadsters are as fun as it gets for simplicity. I've been enjoying the build on mine.
