Reminds me of my roadster when I first put it together 1959. At that time my top those in irons were nonstock. And my posts had been bent that. Yours looks more stock as it is more stock but they do look a little better lowered. I have a question for you. How do you post your size pictures as I would rather post large pictures than small? Good job thanks

Wow! That car is something else! I don't even mind the primer, but I could see it being the same color as the wheels all over. The wide whites and stance with that body shape, amazing!

You can sign up for a free photobucket account (www.photobucket.com)

You upload your pictures there, then just copy and paste them here. It's very easy and free

Love the bumpers, you take a great photo Chris, just at that sweet spot of early evening light.
Everything about that car is perfect, the stance, the engine, the dash, the top, the list goes on, saying that, I like your future plans. Looking forward to the next stages of its evolution.

It looks tons better with fenders and the Pontiac lights and 41 bumpers are a great choice …. not much id change.
I’m quite envious actually … I want one in 33 in a bad way

Thank you. My build era is 1955...the tail lights, headlights, bumpers, hubcaps all play into that. 1934 is my favorite year Ford and a roadster is what I have always wanted. 33's aint bad either

Had it out all weekend...went on a 100 mile poker run, went to the local V8 club meeting. Everyone for the most part likes it's new look. Even the younger gals!
