There's something almost athletic and motorcycle-like about the proportions of this coupe that I like. I dig the combination of skinny tires and hard chop too. The Offy engines apparently made something like 400+ horsepower. I imagine this car would smoke those tires and wire wheels right off in the blink of an eye! Very cool...thanks for sharing!
Nice, that Offenhauser engine reminds me of the pre-war four-banger era where there were aftermarket overhead valve heads in production by more than a few manufacturers. The Offenhauser has always reminded me of the Gemsa overhead conversion foe the Model T and A four banger engines, Joe Gemsa was pretty much ahead of his time with his designs and ideas.
Have to agree with all that’s been said about the rest of your model, it just looks right, screams early Hot Rod!
spex84: Glad to ear it, Bob! I'm doin' OK too. Just not spending much time at the bench these days.

krassandbernie: You'd be getting more done than I have in the past year or two if you do build on the kitchen table! LOL!

EchoBravoSierra: I'm struggling to settle on something to build too. My "working on a model" time has been pulling a box out, digging in it, putting it back up, wash, rinse, repeat.
