It has been said before but, just because you can doesn't mean you should.

A “540 ci. Aluminum Hemi (Indy Block) 871 Blower, Fuel Injection” with a tiny Model A sized radiator! It probably only runs for 5 minutes before it overheats big time.

Just think how many "more normal" cars a guy could've built with that time & money.

It wouldn't be my choice for a model A but there are plenty model A tudors out there that a person can buy and fix the way that they like .

That's not even a Model A anymore...
On a different note, can they even see out the windshield?

It reminds me of some of the wild paint jobs on 60s show cars. I doubt Henry would have liked it because he wasn't into frilly cosmetics. But one thing the purists overlook is he was a hot-rodder at heart. He didn't care about "authenticity" - he was always tinkering with his cars, trying to improve them. Sometimes successfully, sometimes not.

I love a nice hot rod as well as the next guy, but that car is just plain Fugly.

I find it hard to focus on it. It makes my head spin.

It might be one of those cases where the guy that owns it will have to be buried in it!

Very well said. Just because it's different (way different!) than when Henry authorized it in 1930, doesn't necessarily mean Henry wouldn't appreciate it today if he was alive. After all, Henry had a lot of ideas that were considered extreme back in the day.
