Default Model A Wheelie

Not original but thought it was cool as it has everything from the running boards to the horn.

Not sure about the ford powered part, the trans pan looks like a deep sump th350 chevy. But if you look the rear tires are off the ground too!

Yeah, I noticed that also. Hmm, that 'photo shopping' stuff can be misleading.

'Also has to be hard on the frame and front end when it slams back down! It's this kind of abuse of good (and expensive!) machinery that makes me a non-fan of "hotrodding".

Looks like an aftermarket frame with a MII front end. Couple hundred dollars should replace all that... Cool picture, and probably VERY unexpected by the driver.
