A re intro, with a pic of my roadster...

Its been 8 years or so since I posted I think, along about the time I was just gathering parts, anyway I've seen some cool builds on here, and decided I might hang around a bit more...Here's a pic of my roadster project, you might have seen it if you frequent other forums. Anyway its a original 31 A roadster on a deuce chassis I built in my garage, pretty much a traditional hotrod with an early (62) 327 and a muncie, dropped axle, lincoln brakes, artillery wheels etc...Mike

Looks good but lets not be so cheap with the pics.

I'm sure you've got more.

Okay..you asked for it
heres a few in progress pics....the first being the pile of parts I started with

Post Katrina


Mock up




Rolling chassis


This pic shows the Mega-hard to find Model A open Firetruck dashrail to clean up the area where the old windshield stancions were..


Fitting the Deuce gas tank to the A lower body, had to Z the rear frame horns a bit.


the dash I started whittling on for the 33 Plymouth insert I have today



Bought all the early ford artillery wheels I could find to end up with 4 nice ones. They're hard to find with the 5.5 early ford bolt pattern..


buddies, ha ha.. I ended up with enough rough parts to piece together a second REALLY rough roadster, which I sold to buy more parts..


Lastly...one from only a few weeks ago..
