I love me a chopped Model A. Nice!

Any chance of channeling it before final assembly?

Lookin' good man.

Thanks Steve. No channel. I just don't fit worth a shit in chopped AND channeled cars. If it were a coupe I probably would find a way to deal with it, but channeled sedans usually looked too "squashed" in my opinion.

Very cool!

I've always liked those myself. There's one near me (I believe it's Iannotti's)that's totaly squished, but, it looks mean as HELL!!

Nice car.

The only change I would make would be to swap the 30-31 radiator shell for a 32 shell.

I did think the A on the VW pan looked akward. Looks like it's sitting a bit high, but I like it.
What with you Wisconson guys and not dropping them cars there, Don't you know ?

put a hood on it with the model a grille.
i think that would make a very good looking car then.
agreed and the shock of the empty engine bay would be worth a thousand laughs

Honestly the car sits lower than it looks in the pics, I just couldn't get a full on low picture in the shop. New springs will settle too, plus there's no real weight in the car yet either. There's no internals in the block, etc.
