'32 Roadster "RetRoadster"
Posted by crzyhorse on Monday, February 2, 2004 6:25 PM
Here's my lone street rod. It started with an AMT '32 roadster kit. I used the chassis, suspension,& wheels from the Revell Dodge Sidewinder kit. The engine id the supercharged DOHC from the Revell Mach III concept car. Basically I shoehorned the Sidewinder into a '32. Even using the roof (albeit narrowed} The net overall effect was that of an old MG. that look I think comes from the laid back grille & headlights mounted to the fenders. When building a street rod I persom\nally prefer the "full fendered" look. In my book the design "flows" a lot better. The Hi-boys look very aggessive,& racy, but I prefer the elegacnce of fenders (just my My 2 cents I'll get off my SoapBox now }

That's sooooooo slick!
I too, like the full fendered look of the Fords. I've got a 1/8 Revell Big Deuce that I may just use some of your styling cues to complete.
Nice work crzyhorse Thumbs Up
