Man, there's a lot to like with this one. Ton's of cool details every where you look. Nice work on the brake system. Looks good end-to-end.

Street Rod? HA!  That thing looks awesome BUT if you drove that on my street the Highway Patrol guy that lives a few houses down might have some questions for you.. You could probably outrun him except for the Motorola.

This looks very good! Nice color choice and excellent engine detailing. It's also nice to see these Topolinos being built as Street Cars, even if I really like those Altereds. Really like this one.

Looks great! Perfect stance and very nice details. What paint did you use for the blower? It looks like cast aluminum and I've NEVER been able to get that exact look! Nice work John.

WOW! Love the stance ,love the headers, love the car! Nice 

build!  Ed Roth is cool. I met him  years ago at hot august nights,right here in reno. I bought some stuff from him. I believe his son runs things now,right there in Utah.His son was at the swap  meet and I bought some shirts from him and his wife.. A bunch of wonderful people!
