    Man, that '29 of your dads is all original tho. Would be hard to rat out an all original car like that.

    naw the 30 is all original, the coupe. the 29 is the sedan he shoved behind the shop once he got the coupe. yeah he wants to street rod the 30 one of these days and I keep telling him, no ( not like me is it, LMAO)

    Little while ago over on Ol Skool's forum we were talking about alternative front suspensions. I voted for a Ford TIB out of a Ranger. Should be easy to hang on the front of a rod and it'll already have front discs.

    It will be black. a hand made spider web grill

    not sure on the induction yet I like the class of a tri power set up but I want this done cheap. probably just go with a single carb and build a bitchin air cleaner for it.

    or sell my extra truck avenger and up grade to a dual carb tunnel ram from summit with some small holleys

    29 Chevy All the way. And nothin is cooler than a dropped I-beam suicide front end. For which induction to run, I vote for eight stromberg 97s with velocity stacks:eek1:
