Browsing around Tumblr, I stumbled upon this concept by John Frye: It looked more like a coupe with the roof removed than the standard roadster body, so I sourced a Chopped AMT body, and got to chopping: Wheel/tire assemblies were pilfered from a 1:32 scale Airfix omnibus kit, as were the fenders. An emory board contoured the tires to look more pneumatic. And after I sprayed them black, I removed the paint from the tires to reveal their original light gray color. Powerplant will be a stock-ish Model A banger, though I intend to display this one as a curbside. I teched it up a bit in the front, opting for IFS, just because I wanted it to represent a modern take on a very vintage look. That's not set in stone, though. With the right drop axle, I could build a new frame pretty quickly.
