    I think that's on the Taildragger's thread.... 46 ford, 56 olds headlight rings, cadillac grille....
     
  4. Looks like a '49 Dodge grille to me.

    Bad ass. Proves customs don't have to be 'late model'. Dig it.

    Proof that a car looks goofy when it is too low

    Gotta love the wheel openings, rear window shape, Pearl white(?) paint, and everything else! WOW

    Could this be the car that was in the "race" in the movie High School Confidential that was build by Barris??? The one that turned over during the race. :confused:

    The car was built by a local guy, Dice Kobeyashi (Sorry Dice, I know that I didn't get the name right).

    He's out of Bardstown, KY.

    I'm pretty sure that he's on the HAMB, just not a lot. Cool guy, mad skills.

    Send him a PM.

    Gee, kinda hard to know.
    Now if the wheel openings were actually anywhere near the wheel center, vertically, maybe you could tell.

    I can tell I'm about to get off on one of my "WTF's it doing on the ground" rants, so I'll shut up.
    Great car, otherwise. I only wish I had the skills involved.
