    I remember seeing Model As with 16" wheels in the 1950s and 60s. I like'em too.

    its pretty solid only rust i could find is in the fenders witch were fiberglassed over unfortunatly so ill have to fix that eventually. and two little spots in the cowl and decklid. next up is to take out the flimsey tin top the p.o. put in and make a nice snap on vinyl top for it put on some different headlight buckets and install my t rear spring and reversed eye front.

    Very Nice, just bought my 31, it had 35 wheels when I picked it up. Looks like we both have a lot of fun ahead.
