Default '30 Model A

Well , it's finished !!! It was a six month build and a ton of fun . All I have is finished photos , I do this every time ( I should have taken a few during the build ) . it's a 1930 model A sedan , chopped 6" channeled 8" , 454 chevy with turbo 400. Interior is home made seats with zodiac vinyl . I have made a couple 4 hour round trips with no major malfunctions . All I can say is this is the most LEGAL fun i've ever had !!! I hope I can get the pictures to load correct, this is my first post. Tell me what you think --- Gregster

well you told us to tell you what we think...so i will....


i think that sums it up well.......

love the wheel/tire combo,... the stance,...the seats....and the "motorvation"

.....lengthy trip w/o a major glitch--says pretty well built in my book...

well you got my opinion

Thanks guys , to answer a few questions , it's loud - kind of like a boat . not so bad when you get it trimmed out ! There are no baffles in it now. One day getting on the interstate I got crowded and had to get on it really hard and when the second carb opened up it had a little crackle and pop , then it spit one of the baffles out like a champagne cork , it went over the side of the bridge into traffic below ( no going back now ) . It runs better without it anyway ! The wheels are 15x5 front and 15x10 rears with 5.60/15 bias & 10.0/15 firestone cheater slicks . The door panels are just sheet metal , the cool part I think are the inside door handles, look close and see if they don't look just like the lever on the toilet tank. there only $6.49 each at lowes .I drove it in to work this morning 39 degrees is cold with no heat and windows . It was worth it though , two cars had to pull along side for pictures --- this is so fun!!!! Gregster
