alpine hot rodding (part one)

Last weekend, I finally managed to do a long awaited trip. No, I haven't been to the bonneville salt flats, but I visited my buddy Richard who lives in the south-east part of Switzerland. It's a region usually known for its world-famous holiday resorts like St. Moritz. Well, I do like snowboarding a lot but as I'm a gearhead I primarily wanted to check out Richard's body shop and some of his own cars. One of them is this period perfect 1927 t model roadster. And it truly is period perfect as it was built in the late 1940s by an airplane mechanic of the US airforce. The car is based on a model a frame and is motivated by a 1946 flathead with edmunds heads and some other speed parts. Check out this awesome roadster in my flickr photo album and find out why I simply couldn't resist when Richard asked me to take it for a ride around the block...
