    Not much progress the past week or so. But I did get the E and J headlights. Seems there is a love hate relationship going on with these. I’ve always loved em. Guess it’s my teenage love affair with Ruxton and Cord and their use of Woodlites and E and Js.

    Last Friday night I was having a beer pondering what to do with the cowl and pulled the grille forward and was surprised at the difference a longer nose makes. All these ideas will just ferment away for a little while whilst I try to source front end parts and steering columns etc.

    Yes!  It captures the coach-built look of the 30’s perfectly.  Lends balance to that streamlined boat-tail.  And hints of a period perfect, powerful long in-line engine?  23 Skidoo, Quentin and Rik.  It’s the bee’s knees!

    Just saw these pics on Rob Ida’s page. And making a substructure for a later car has me wondering about doing a unibody.226534AF-13B7-4D9F-B2CF-74CF62E6BCD476EF1286-A131-4FC3-B2BD-2301E1E24F09232F3EA5-073A-4A3E-89B4-640D42F23B583CFDB8D7-0C69-4012-A1D9-71FDE38EF00C

    Call me old fashioned but I have always preferred a frame under a car. I guess that comes from dealership collision work done back in the day. Unibody stuff was a PITA.

    Your build has got me looking for a running Model A chassis, Quentin. I’m thinking about a boat tail speedster with a body made out of the left over Mahogany I wll have from my current boat restoration project. 🙂
