Made from ipe, oak, and pine. The hood ornament is made from purple heart. Completed 8/2017.

I wanted to nickname this project “What now?!” because of the several problems I had during construction.

Very nice work, you may have had several problems during construction but it turned out great.

Scrubbed up well Edwin, despite any problems. Incredible how a bit of “tunning” will get ‘er runnin’ smoothly.

Came out great. Also interested what wood you used for the whitewalls. On my 32’ Ford I used Aspen.
