Lyle Willits' Tall "T"

(click the image to go back)

This is not the model that Lyle set out to build, his original vision was a full-fendered T. What he discovered along the way is that once a cross-member is placed in the frame for mounting the front suspension, there's not enough room left for an engine. After valiantly trying every cool hotrod engine he had and setting the firewall back as far as he could, Lyle realized it was time to change his plan. He discarded the fenders, installed a suicide front suspension from his parts box, and shifted the radiator forward. This gave him plenty of room for an engine.
