    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. If it doesn't, I'll push the maintenance back to Saturday, 2 December.

    I agree with most of the analysis above but I think her real talent was with open wheel racing and she never really made a successful transition into the heavier stock cars. Perhaps she will find her place again at Indy in '18. Good luck.

    Nice! I like all the subtle body mods, paint and tail lights. Well done!
  3. FordRodnKustom added a post in a topic Favorite street rod of all time   

    I agree 100% with all the above excellent choices especially the Doan Spencer roadster but me as far as Dueces go it would be the Joe Nitti roadster, Truly a classic and timeless build. In other words to me this car is just right.

    That said, for full fenders. this 57 Ford really does it for me

    Again, to my completely untrained eye, this car is timeless

    I think this kit still has great bones.
    I built this one from the yellow with black flame issue around 1989 when the only other Deuce choice was from AMT

    More recently I did this one from the blue on the box Classic Cruiser issue

    I have plans for a few more. Very versatile kit IMHO

    I'll second that one. Sort of like was done with the Blue "Bandito"

    Same thing here . I posted on this topic back in April here:

  7. FordRodnKustom added a post in a topic What's your holy grail kit?   

    For the longest time my #1 was the Sport Coupe

    But I recently acquired one (thanks Steve!)and am in the process of restoring it so......
    Moving into the #1 slot would be one of these, in mint boxed condition

    Nice work!
  9. FordRodnKustom added a post in a topic 1961 Ford Sunliner - Restored   

    Nice work. Thanks for saving a classic.
  10. FordRodnKustom added a post in a topic Post your crazy IMSA cars...   

    Not sure if this is crazy but here goes.




  11. FordRodnKustom added a post in a topic 49/50 AMT Ford   

    Agreeing with Bernard here......the '49 chassis is the better starting point of the two.

    Long Shot Parts Request
    I'm restoring an original Monogram Sport Coupe(thanks Steve!) and I need the intake and air cleaner assembly for it. I have lots of stuff to trade if anyone has any or all of these they don't need. Thanks.

    I picked up a T today. I like the frame, Lincoln mill and running gear in that kit.
  14. FordRodnKustom added a post in a topic AMT '62 Mercury mild custom rebuild   

    Thanks all! I thought that custom tail panel was just enough 60's jet/space age crazy to be cool today and in keeping  with the '60s vibe I was going for. Glad I was able to get those custom parts. Thanks Les!
    Glad ya'll enjoyed seeing the Merc.
