Dakota Chief Model A gasser update two in a row

Got it off the rollers in back.
Still fine tuning the stance..Might bring the rear up another inch..
And the front will droop down a bit with engine/trans/rad...

wheel well to tire is just a visual trick. It is centered.
Looks like a race car to me !

Costa Rica update

Tak, down at Costa Rica hot rods sent in a few early update pictures.
Sent basically a roller chassis for the 1937 Ford special pick up.
It was just one month ago when I crated it all up..Far far away for sure.

It's our "bobber" type truck frame aka El Roberto !
Wait till you see the cab and engine mounted up.

really he is happy, just working hard

large size tires can work on fenderless trucks.
