Wright's Hotrod is doing original 1928 Ford Roadster. Here is the beginning?
the first picture is the "real good start" on a hot rod
I love 28/29 ford roadsters
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?
Yo Willy, what happened to the Tudor?
Does your wife know you took your sons school money??
My son loves eating at Mcdonalds. When grows up he should love flipping Big Macs too.
Them dollar bills won't last long
Bad weather this weekend. Stayed in the garage and worked on the cowl for my new project.
Passenger side cowl panel repair.
Nice William!!! That's exciting stuff!! Gonna be some really cool roadster around this neck of the woods soon.
What's the plan? Flathead, Columbia?
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.
