Album: Chop Top 1931 Model A Five Window Ford Coupe Rat Rod
Dan Rushing Sent in these Photos of his 1931 Model A five window 3" Chopped Top Ford Coupe and here is what he had to say about it.

If a guy in the 50's did not have much money, but wanted a hot-rod he would have built a car like mine: It is a 1931 Model-A five window Ford Coupe with 3" chopped out of the top, on a "32" Ford chassis, with a "32" Ford grill. I have a ford 9" rear end and a Saginaw 4-speed manual transmission, "39" Ford tear drop taillights, Guide 682-C headlights, "32" Ford dash and a "40" Ford steering wheel on a skinny little broomstick steering column, drum brakes, buggy spring rear suspension, dropped axle up front, and of course a small block Chevy. 350-4 bolt main, double hump 202 fuelie heads, Offy. tri- power manifold and three 2-barrel Holley "94"'s.

I also have included a photograph I took while I was riding shotgun in my buddy Bill's "32". I am photographing a "32" Ford, while riding in a "32" Ford. We were doing 90 mph at the time. Man that was good times I'll tell ya! There is nothing cooler that a pre-WW-II hot rod!

In addition to my best buddy Bill's "32" and my "31", my two little brothers, as well as my dad, are building cars too. One of my brothers is building a 1923 touring roadster, and the other one just acquired a 1933 Ford sedan and is expecting to pick up the body any day now. My dad is building a T-bucket, with a small block Chevy running a vintage Weiand dual quad manifold. He is going to put us all in the weeds with that thing! I am including a photograph of our car club logo we are called: THINGS? The font, as well as the color of the embroidery, is based on two separate influences: Classic horror films; and a wonderful vintage roadside tourist trap here in Arizona called "The Thing". You pay a small fee and go into to see "The Thing"! The idea is our cars or like scary monsters. They have rattle can black paint jobs, no interiors, all go no show. People are always asking me "When are you going to finish your car"? I just laugh.

The THINGS car club in Tucson Az. reminds you to never forget Ed "Big Daddy" Roth 1932-2001 RIP...
