We'll be there, too. Hopefully we'll get a chance to spend a bit more time checking out each other's ride this year.

I'm really impressed with the thought you've put into it so far. Looks like it's going to be a great build! I would have never thought to use old caddy sheetmetal to build a speedster. That's just cool!

When I first got the roof, I had planned on the car being a single seater, but the curve of the roof didn't really seem to be what I had invisioned.

I played with it and figured that it might work better as a two seater. I am happy with the looks and the function so far. It will have a lot more foot room than a model A (it is about 10 inches wider at the firewall!). The two seater should be cheaper to build (no sprint car steering box) and I won't be straddling a driveshaft.

Overall, this should be a cheap car to build since I did not have to lay out any cash for a body to start with. The parts car was $1000. But that got me just about everything I will need to build the car.

I can see this thing being less than $2500 completely finished.

Now I'm even more impressed! I would have thought the old Jag would have been alot more than that. I'm very intregued with the jag engines I've seen in several rat rod builds lately. The V12's are a very cool concept! I like things being done different. I guess that's why like the jag engines.
