what a really cool find!!! I enjoyed reading about that thing. Wooden spoke rims, 79 year old tires that still hold air, 75 year old convertible top in decent shape. Really cool car. If only i had $30,000+ to bid on it

I don't think him or his buddy has any interest, been following that build since the beginning. Several of the basics he's unaware of which means he probably doesn't have much interest in searching. The SS seems to be slower going... but still faster than mine lol

At least somebody spammed us from pirate. Good job! LOL

That's such an odd combination. Super wide axles, I mean, the tires don't even go in the body... yet only like 36" tires? They don't look that much bigger than your tires Kyle.

Maybe its the perspective. They look disproportionately sized to the axles and the vehicle.

I can't stop looking at the wheelbase. He pushed both axles out a really long way. The axles themselves look awesome. I really like the build.
