    Nice clean build but those wheels and tires throw it off for me.

    I would agree, zoomie style headers would work with the Ardun. Another option is bending up some gasser style headers that snake up and dump down over the rails. But in my mind Ardun and gasser are two different styles, but it is a rat, so whatever looks cool will work. 
    Also: Those wire wheels are nice. Which kit are they from?

    AMT 32 Ford Phaeton top
    Hey guys,
    I'm looking for the chopped rag top in the AMT 32 Ford Phaeton kit. I want to build a chopped soft top for a 29 roadster and this seems to be a good start.

    Banjo Matthews Ford stock car
    Hey guys, I just finished this 39 Ford (I used a 40) that Banjo Matthews ran at McCormick field here in Asheville. My dad remembers watching Banjo win 16 straight races at the ball field, racing against legends such as Ned Jarrett, Ralph Earnhardt and Dickie Plemmons.  I used a Revell 40 Ford Standard coupe with parts from the Revell 37 Ford pickup and 37 coupe. Wheels and tires are from Ron Coon Resins, and the decals were purchased on eBay. I scratch built the roll cage, radiator, headers, seat frame and bumpers. The cowl was reworked to match the 37 hood and the firewall was reworked to replicate a 39 (with the battery located on the passenger side). Paint is Tamiya rattle can and Testors lacquer clear. Black pastels were used for mild weathering.

    I'm curious how the clutch and throttle linkages work with the engine behind the driver. I'm assuming they only have 1 gear since a push start is required to get them up to speed.
