Looking at old family photos,we all had rolled up jeans.I think how this started was you had only a few lenghts to choose from back then,not like now.As kids mom always bought them long so you had room to grow, and you could let them down as needed.Also they were never called jeans,but called overalls.At least where i grow up.

Back on topic. I have been staring at these pics for several years now. Frank Kurtis and Art Ingles are my heroes. Theres a current trend towards fancy fab work as an end rather than a means ( like sleeving "lightening"  ::) holes for instance), I like the pure, essential form of the art better. THIS is ART. Pure, clean, functional, minimalist.

Construction photos of the Johnny Hartmann torsion bar roadster. I figure these photos are probably circa late '47-early '48? Car was photographed racing in July '48

TS3X posted it in the first couple pages, but the Leever and Esser car is one of the best ever, IMO. Couple more.

Is that actually "dropped", or does it have new ends welded on? I have never seen a axle like that that was actually "dropped", ie, heated and stretched.

I'am sure the drop was added on.

My guess as well. I would be very surprised if you could stretch one and get that shape like that. Interesting axle, bet theres some history behind that one.
