All taken care of but I don't see any changes as of yet on top. Thanks Rodnit. I guess I will include it here too. This one is from 11 years ago with the Bacardi Rum Girls.

Yes. This one is ours. It was finished in October of 2014. Titled in February 2015.

The state of Illinois Sheriff's Dept. hires irresponsible representatives when it comes to doing their job.

Got a question for all those that have built the '34 Classic Motor Carriages, Fiberfab, Street Beast cars. How many of you felt that the brake pedal supplied was made too wide and extended to far to the right where someone with a foot bigger then size 9 would hit it at times going for the gas pedal or coming up from it. Its been a long time since my build. I don't drive my car as much as I would like being I have a number of other collector cars to drive and I can't drive them all living in NJ where you basically only get to use them 6 months of the year unless that rare nice day appears during the Fall. Been thinking about modifying the pedal maybe cutting it down some or putting a torch to it once I decide to take it out of the car and try to bend it more to the left which I believe would do the trick if it could be done. All thoughts are welcome. Maybe some of you did a modification to the brake pedal already. I don't remember seeing anyone talk about this what I believe to be a problem with the manufacture of the brake pedal for this build.

Common issue in hot rodding.. Just remember the factory collector cars had most of their issues of that nature solved before they were sold to the public. I n Hot rodding we are the development engineers and need to be the ones who fix things to our satisfaction. Cut away and modify until it suits you..

Because of the trans. tunnel, and the nature of 30's style cars, you're somewhat limited in room. I have big feet (13, 4 E) and never really had a problem hitting both pedals at one time. Now, if there was a clutch pedal added, well there probably would be a problem, at least for my big hoofs!

My gosh, are your feet square???!!!! Lol

I have a 10.5 and my feet squeek thru. I've driven it enough so it's not an issue. I also remebered not to put my left foot anywhere near the backside of the brake pedal. It doesn't want to stop very well.....

Took a look last night. Going to pull the pedal assembly back out,grind off the weld holding the pedal on moving it to the left another have inch or so and reweld it if I can't bend the assembly over some after heating it. It will be a late fall project. I really don't have to much of a problem but I notice plenty of difference in room there coming out of other vehicles of mine. Got to make it right. I am afraid of someone else driving the car not knowing and it being a problem. I wear a 10-1/2 shoe myself and usually buy a wide shoe when possible.
