Re: 29 Model A Project-Speedster?

Aaron,
Welcome to the barn. I built a 29 Speedster from frame up. Turned out very nice. I used two 1940 delux hoods, welded them together. They made an excellent boatail shape.

Re: Another Loss....Steve Salazar

Steve was a stand up Guy! He rebuilt my rear end assembly in my speedster and delivered it to my house. Excellent work. I'm very sad, my thoughts go to his family.
