  2. That green Model A sedan and the gold 40 coupe are perfect in my eyes.

    They really are. That sedan Blew my mind when I first saw it. It's hard to nail a traditional show car so well on the head. You could almost tell what MONTH Rod and Custom that car should be from in 1960 it's so well done.

    Lee's Gold '40 is like being in the same room as Cindy Crawford. Try not to stare but damn.

    Oh, I'm going to stare alright, straight on stare with my tung hangin out.
    The 40 is perfect. So refreshing to see full caps on these. And the color is perfect.

  8. Danny, we do like a lot of the same style. I absolutely love the early 60s style of build. I was sooooo thankful that you got my coupe before I got it back. I was so afraid someone made a piece of crap out of it, but you preserved it and now I can improve it.

    I must've missed some of those posts. Can you link the pics to the respective threads? Or what tag(s) should I search?

    Thanks in advance.

    Love the stance and b&w picture of the 57 and the pallet of the 56 Merc picture.
     
  19. The Jewel and Hells Messenger are my two favourites.
    A young fella on here a few years back built a green A Tudor that had similar look to The Jewel.
    I really liked that car, it had chrome smoothies, but I think blackwalls instead of whitewalls. Wonder what become of that? Have an idea he sold it.
    Look forward to the new features.

    @Ryan

    Im soooo glad to hear you'll be doing regular features on modern (traditional) builds. There are so many great projects on this site...so many it is hard to keep track of them all. This will be a great way of exposing some of the top notch talent out there building new cars. Although there is always new magazines popping up, losing Rod and Custom has left a pretty big hole to fill, and your team can easily fill the void.

  21. Awesome stuff Ryan, I look forward to the year ahead. Any plans to feature historic hot rods & customs? I enjoyed the Kansas Tornado and Hell's Massanger & The Devil Inside

    All cool...but really liked the mocked up 32 5W.
     
  23. Really glad to hear there will be more car features to come this year - I've loved the mix of historical posts with the newer builds that have an eye towards that history.

    I'm super happy to have been one of those features last year, and it's really nice to hear the kind comments about The Jewel - thanks!

    Here was a cool shot of the sedan and Lee's Nomad making a quick stop in Chattanooga at Coker/Honest Charlie's on the road back home from Baltimore - Kontinentals snapping some necks with those two going down the highway together.

  24. DAM! This is going to be a great ride......I am hoping my 3 window will fit into this group when it is done I know Ryan looked in on it when I first started the build and so I hope he checks back from time to time. Would be nice to get his stamp of approval on it.
     
  25. You don't have a tub on the docket.

    I'll be at the roundup if you're feeling guilty ;)

    I dig it too. From a photography standpoint, I am interested in attempting something similar but with multiple cars in an attempt to set a scene that you would find in the era.

    The Hotrod Hill Climb and TROG are 2 venues I participated in this year that set the perfect stage.

    Looking forward to your results.
     
  28. Oh forgot! Happy New Year Ryan!
     
  29. Awesome pics! I too am drooling

    I've always been a fan of Pratt's cars.
    I'm not really a fan of '57's, but the rake of that one is perfection. I can't wait to see more pic of it.
