A couple updated pictures of my blue coupe from the previous post. I like swapping the wheels around on the red one.

I know that car well, long story....  I was trying to buy that car from the lady, but the current owner beet me to it.  He took the car a lot farther than I would have, and they did a fantastic job on that car too! So it is probably the best situation all around!
I have every magazine(that I am aware of) that car was featured in, including the first iteration pre zoomies. I am constantly studying and hunting down leads.  It was only a month after I missed out on the Sylvester roadster the Cockroach roadster became available, it is not a 32, but I dig the crazy chrome frame and chrome floor, plus instead of a restoration, it was a preservation which are the kind of cars I favor.

Thankyou!  I typically do not like to change the orginal look on these found cars when they are so complete, but I could stand the radiator mounted ahead of the cross member (it needed a new radiator anyway) the proportions of the grill and light position were just wrong for me. Plus the front and rear suspension was pretty much trashed, so I took some artistic license ; )   I am really glad I kept the old shock mounts, that was one of the keys that convinced me the old photo a fathers friend had from the 50's at a drag strip was the same car.  It was really a wierd conicidence.  There is a story of that in Pat Ganahl's latest book, Lost Hot Rods 2.

Yes!  That is the photo.  Same car approximate 57 years ago, it looked tuff back then.  Somewhere in the 60's & 70's it got changed from drag car to street-show rod and then it sat in a garage for a while.
