Kind of neat - it's like a T-bucket, but, with a T engine. The only part I'm confused about is where you are supposed to put your left foot. Seems like a prime candidate for moving the handbrake outside the body. Cool engine though - I want one of those dual exhaust manifolds. Also seems like a Stromberg OF would really unleash that engine.

No one thought this was cool?

I think it's kind of cool :-)
Wouldn't build it exactly like that, too many post WW2 parts - but that's why we build our own cars to suit our own taste..

Gotta be a better way to support the steering column.

I like it Seth. If I bought it, I would put the GEMSA engine I have listed in it and go fast!

The steering column looks like it's really old though, maybe from a brass era car?

Brass era, judging by the quadrant, and non-Ford (no gear box under the steering wheel).

That speedster was built by a guy from Indianapolis/Speedway, IN a few years back. I believe he calls his business "Bubba's Hot Rod Shop". I see it's in California now.
