    That's killer lookin' Nads. When I say your bike looks rat rod cool, I mean that in the best way possible. I'd love to ride something like that- and I'm not a bike guy!
     

  5. Nads, you could have gotten a steel one if you would have gone to Webster today. We got called "those rat rodders" as dv8 was buying a T body for his modified. haha

    neat! tell you whut, though, if you lose the 'Genuine Fiberglas' sticker, I'll kill ya.

    by the way, maybe it's the foto, but your seat's taking on the appearance of a big slice of cheese pizza.

    Fa, I hate to tell ya this, but the sticker sort of fell off as soon as gas hit it. I do have it saved and I'm going to try and have my friend make me a replica.
    Nate, I was at Webster today, all's I got was some wheel adapters and a set of '62 Caddy hubcaps.

    d'oh! well, you know how I feel on the subject.
     
  11. Hay Nads- I hung with Zor this weekend at our local show[Buzzard Run]Macon Mo and we were talkin about the 34coupe- can you show a pic or two of where its at man?Kenny
     
  12. I met Dee Wescott during my three month HONEYMOON HOT ROD EXPEDITION EXTRAVAGANZA(tm) ...sorry germ... and he said they started the fibreglass business back in 1957 when they couldn't find a rear valance panel for a '33 or '34 that they were working on, so they made one out of fibreglass. Then all of a sudden, everyone wanted one.

    Hey Nads, maybe when you get the sticker redone you can get them to spell FIBREGLASS correctly. [​IMG]
