I have a 1928 Ford Model A Roadster and at the moment it is primered grey. For the majority of you readers, would it look better flat black?

NICE ride

personally I'd want the front spring perch fully welded, but it's your catapult ride, if you're comfortable with it go for it

color, ANYTHING but red, but something that isn't on every other rod would be coolest, IMO, enjoying it is the most important part

I watched both of your videos. I read the captions. IMO, finish the car and everytime you look at it, think of it, and drive it, you think of all the good times you spent with your dad.

My opinions come form a similar loss this summer, I've got my own project that will be a rememberance, and a continuation of joy that my son will participate in.

I do not have the resources to finish the car. The hot rod will be sold as is, in the case that someone wants to alter it. Your opinion has great insight as to what some want when they look at a Hot Rod for sale. If there is a financer out there, who would like to go in 1/2s, I think the car would bring 30K finished. Please people, tell me your opinion on my ideas.

The welds were not fully welded because my father died before it was finished. My Father wanted to see the "Big picture".

I didn't know how far along the car has come since the video was taken. I have heard stories of suicide front-ends falling off, that's what made me take notice of yours.

I personally won't dislike you for something your parents did to you. I suppose it'd be alright to carry on the family tradition with your son. Smile

I know some people have more in life that surfing the mag's forum but I'd like to see a follow-up on this car.
