'20's and '30's dirt track racers

One of the projects waiting in a corner of my shop is a scratch built, let's say, '33 dirt track race car. It has a model A front end with a '32 axle and a model A rear axle with a T spring. The frame rails are 10ga. chanel that tapers fron 4 3/4"s at the firewall, to 2"s at the front crossmember. The rear of the side rails kicks up over the rear end like an Essex frame. The motor will be an A banger with a '28 multi disc clutch be hind it. Motor will be pretty much stock to start with, later maybe a '28 Chevy head. The body, as far as I've gotten, is hand made from 18 and 20ga. steel. I made the nose piece out of the back corners of the top of an A sedan. For the tail, I've got 4 '47 Chevy type front fender extensions. I plan on running '33 Ford, 17" rims up front and '32 18" on the back. I guess I'm looking for birds of a feather. Anyone out there have an interest in these great little racers?

re:'20's and '30's dirt track racers

OK....there's the thing...I'm kinda new to computers...I've tried to post pictures before without much luck..but I have a good tutor and hope to remedy that soon. Besides, it's all in pieces right now. I need to do some organizing in the shop over the long weekend, so I can slip it together for some pics then. Youngster
