Cool Howdy!

Howdy Folks,
Just found this great site, and signed in. I'm an ol' time hot rodder from the 50's, and still at it.
Right now, I'm building a re-creation of that first hot rod I ever laid eyes on when I was about twelve.
It's a Model A ('31) Coupe, chopped 3", channeled 7", flathead with Navarro heads & triple intake, 97's, deuce shell, wide whites, & spun aluminum Moons. I have the MorDrop front axle & hairpins from the original car - dragged them out of the woods where they'd been for years - so I have some originality to it!

Havin' one problem with the Buick drum/Ford spindle situation - finding the right wheel studs - so I'm gonna mosey over to the bulletin board & see if any pards over there have any ideas.

See ya down the road........

Hey there buddy! That does sound like and interesting project, how far along are you? Whats the flatty out of? I sold my 31 chopped sedan about a year ago, got it rolling, sbc/350 and found it was just a bit tight in the shoulders so it had to go. Got a 53 chevy 210 thats pro-street that I cruise these day's.

HEY DS: I have been to the Rocky Coast of Maine, it is my wife's favorite place at Boothbay and Bar Harbour. We went up there one fall, rented a car and drove around. I enjoyed the Owl Head Museum. Welcome aboard this site.......DAVE
