This is what dreams are made of. 1933 Ford Roadster; Nostalgic '33.

    ''The stock Ford framerails form the foundation of Terry's '33. The frame is muscled up with modified crossmembers to support the transmission and rearend. The low-slung hot rod stance is accomplished in front by a 4-inch dropped and drilled I-beam from Magnum Axle with stock '40 spindles, hanging on a pair of Pete & Jake's hairpins. At the rear, a Halibrand Champ quick-change, running 4.11 gears with limited slip, hangs on a pair of Pete & Jake's ladder bars. Bumps in the road are smoothed out by chrome tube shocks and a P&J mono-leaf buggy spring at the front of the 'rails and Aldan coilovers at the rear corners. For stopping, Terry employs Buick drum brakes with finned backing plates from Wilson Welding at the forward wheels, and Ford 11-inch drums at the other end.

      Power is provided by a '70s-era Chevy 350, running stock internal components. An early Offenhauser dual-port intake manifold was capped with a Carter AFB 600 four-barrel. A pair of original Chevy 283 valve covers was chromed to add some shine to the engine compartment. Ignition is provided by a stock HEI, with a pair of Corvette ram horn headers to carry away the exhaust. R&A Muffler built the 2¼-inch pipes, and 30-inch glasspack mufflers provide the perfect note. Chino Hills Transmission assembled the late-'60s GM Turbo 350 transmission, tied to a 2,400 stall converter.''

     Oh baby... I'm so in love.
