I don't suspect that you will make alot of friends in the durant star automobile club if you hotrod that one. I was in the process of making a sunbeam tiger replica out of a sunbeam alpine. I had collectors calling me at home begging me to stop what I was doing. I know it wasn't the same as your durant star dilemma but the devotion that some of these restorer guys have to their marques borders on fanaticism. If you do rod it get ready for having to make almost everything you need on it custom, and again the restorer guys won't want to give up anything to a rodder. so if you need body or trim parts you may find yourself out in the cold. Just a thought.
my signature lines...not really directed at anyone in particular..

BE different....ACT normal.

No one is completely useless..They can always be used as a bad example
