    great story - sorry about Pops...

    Very similar to my 35 build - in the spirit of an old dirt racer. Rock on, brother!

    Love it!! I wanted to do a bench seat, but I'm 6'7" and wife is 5'1". Haha. Those wheels and tires look bad ass. Is that a chevy pickup door panel? Dig it!

    My bench is a compromise so I can fit both boys in there with me (6'3" here) and it is uncomfortable to drive due to that, but I don't care - they boys are growing up quick so I gotta maximize the time with em. the 6 year old keeps an eye for stoplights "green!" "red!" etc... you get the idea.
    the car is literally crap I had laying around. door skins are off of some junk cars I scrapped out here and there. pass door is Duke Boys welded up style, drivers side does open crudely but I rarely use it. roof is off a Chrysler minivan I junked out. chassis front clip is a Courier / Mazda B2200 (??) with the 6-lug bolt pattern - firewall-back frame I made out of heavy square tube repurposed. it's cool, weird, fast and fun. tires I got from my boss' race team. really completes the look I think. 2.4l 4-cyl with 5-speed manual trans, 4.11 rear axle. drive all day on 5 gallons of gas.

    Put in all new drum brake guts and rear brake lines, replaced pinion seal, and slapped on an intake elbow for radiator clearance tonight. No more dangly donkey **** air filter, lol. Headers wouldn't quite clear the valve covers so I had to do a little grinding. Not going to put on the downpipes till we get the firewall in.
