    is the first pic showing us this is a budget build, or a high dollar build?

    That looks like a great start on a Roadster at about twice what I paid for my questionable start on a Model A Victoria . I'd say you did good on the long green side of things.
    Now that we have seen the original investment and a pretty nice A roadster body what's the plan?

    My son loves eating at Mcdonalds. When grows up he should love flipping Big Macs too.

    Flathead, original 1932 frame, 1939 trans, and 1936 rear. No Columbia at this time. Plan drive hell out of the car. Like a real hotrod.

    Firewall repair. The first pic is my leg after leaving the shop about 2:00am in the morning. I had forgotten about the rust fire wall that was in the driveway. After rolling in the driveway for about half hour I made to the house. The leg is healed up and firewall has been repaired.
