I'm right there with ya . In my mind a small set of style appropriate rear fenders would really add to it .

I think that's the first time I've seen an Edsel grille used on a build.

I like it, already have parts stashed to build something similar and silly. Friend of mine has a crazy long nose hot rod he built around the edsel grille, we call it "Fang" LOL.

LOL we have similar tastes, that is the one I like the best and have been collecting parts to make one. Already have just about everything including the C10 chassis and keg gas tank waiting in the corner. Looks like an outrageous go cart.
