            That is some mean looking pipes coming out the side.
            Lots of work and I am sure lots of $$. Great work
            and a super nice Street Rod.

                    The car sits well, and the roof chop turned out great. Can't say as I like the lack of doors. I was never a big fan of "shaving" door handles. IMHO, it's more creative to find a way to better integrate door handles into the overall design of the car, and keep it practical. Dave Lester's Sheba is a perfect example of that approach.

                    And that guy's Web site is really annoying to read.

                      I was in Arizona 2 weeks ago. It was nice there. We have -14 here, now. Just got back from taking the dog for a walk.

                          My Studie for Friday's eye candy, I'm honored, thanks.





                          Doors open remotely via solenoids and poppers, as well as the trunk lid and the tilt clip via two 800lb. linear actuators.
                          And before someone asks what happens when your battery is dead, how do you get into the car ? The car is equipped with jumper terminals at the rear of the car.
                          Trunk lid needs adjusting, just put on for pics.
                          I have '52 tailight bezels for the car. They finish off the fenders and match the slope of the custom trunk ducktail.
                          The rope, well, that was used to pull the car up a slight grade from the garage as it wasn't ready for a drive up yet.
                          The fireup video on my website wasn't the best and had to iron out some bugs to get it to run right.
                          The paint is also not right and will be returning to the painter to be resprayed
                          Still have some more work to do before I can actually take her for a cruise. I sure was hoping to do that last summer.

                          And gordr, I'm sorry you found my site annoying to read. Such is life. I'm not a webmaster and did the site on my own.

                            Awesome cruzer, shaved, chopped, slammed, and lake pipes. Great way to create envy.
