Thanks Danno, it took third in Street Rod, and my 29 Ford took first. At first I was worried when they were competing against each other, as I had considered this one for custom class in my mind, again, I see this one more as a show rod, but hey, it all worked out! BTW, it was a pleasure meeting you in person as well. Maybe next time, we can chat more.
My pleasure entirely!
Congrats on both awards.
Look forward to seeing you again ... don't forget to follow the Moonlight Modelers website for future meetings in your neighborhood. And, Desert Scale Classic in April. Don't be a stranger!

LOL, tell you what... consider it in my will to you! I really am glad you like it man.
So...now that it's all done, I'm SURE you're really tired of looking at it. Since you're such a good bud and all, I feel compelled to relieve you of the burden. I'll send you my address.

This is really cool... it's definitely a different take on the whole "C" cab thing. Awesome!
Thanks Jason and everyone else for all of the positive feedback!
While I would love to say the idea was mine alone, I must admit that I was inspired by a sketch that I saw in Traditional Rod and Kulture mag. Here is the sketch by Zombie below. My build is not meant to be an exact replica, and does vary in several ways. Also, I tied this build in with an online Three-N-one build theme where you were using major kit parts from at least three different kits, thus the name C-N-Things, as in the C-cab and other things. Those other things in this case being 29 fenders and bed where I think the sketch below uses 32 fenders etc. I also had the 32 grill and the motor and suspension mostly from the Ala Kart kit. Still, I hope you all enjoy it.

Now here's the funny part. I'm using the pieces from the Paddy Wagon that you would have left over. I saved the cab pieces for a future project! Do you see the sides?
