Interesting. I like it. These old Indy roadsters have some great swoopy lines. I've been using the noses from these for some track-nose builds for quite a while, and was thinking of how to do a two-passenger version of this as a hot-rod. Looking good.

Lo-Lo, you about a creative ol rascal aint'cha? Looks good, personally i think the chrome wheels and low pro tires would look killer with that color, but it's your model. It's gonna be really cool, regardless of what wheels it's runnin!
