The car looks great, do you have any pics of the steering setup?

Yes, closeups of the steering please. I just brought home a rack for the Model A today.
Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance............

Thanks for all the great comments , I made a few changes and upgrades over the winter . The engine was a little tired , it had been through a couple different cars and was ready to be freshened up . Just a basic re-ring and bearings , new valve springs and valve grind . Oh yeh , I also finally finished getting the blower together . I can't wait to roast the tires !!!!

I have a lust for rust

The blower is a great addition to a very impressive rod. Looks like you have a fun summer in store.
