Good night with great friends chopping the top on my coupe. @deadlastccgeorge @deadlasthaas @karnesstacy427 @justin.blair.1941 @deadlastcc #trophywhore2.0 #choptop #hotrodbuild #coupe #modeacoupe #32chassis #traditional #carclub #deadlastcc #detroit #builtnotbought #buildyourshit
So I’m switching the roadster over to 12volt and with the modern distributor I don’t need the timing advance/manual throttle controls. So I stole the pivot arm and welded it to the end of the throttle linkage and it lined up perfect to run the stromberg downdraft carb.
I kinda learned this partly from watching @throttlejockeyoriginals videos.. #hotrodbuild #1243 #fordflathead #vintageracing #traditionalhotrod

Posted @withrepost • @barwick27 I´ve decided I´m not going to get around to finishing my 1932 Chevrolet Cabriolet Roadster. So it´s time to sell it.
All original, the underside of the car is very clean with no rot or rust, all steel with 32,486k miles on the clock.
The engine was gone before I bought the car, but we have just installed a straight six, automatic, 250 from a 60´s Chevy Nova. The rear axle, drive shaft and brakes have been replaced but the original parts can go with the car if someone wanted to restore back to stock.

For the photos I´ve leant the original wheels against the wheels in the rear axle. Sent me a PM @barwick27 for more details or to see the car. $35,000 OBO located in Riverside CA, #rodswapper @rodswapper #1932chevy #1932roadster #32roadster #32hotrod #hotrod #hotrodbuild #cabriolet #fullerton #california
Looks like fun to me... I wouldn't have to wipe or polish. @schraderspeed coupe.

Found this cool fuel tank for the roadster. Not sure the application or how old it is. Any guesses?? #hotrodbuild #hotrodshit #traditionalhotrod #aviation #fuelcell #flatheadford
Made seats for the roadster today. Found some cowhides with cool branding marks and barbed wire scars. Gives the interior a real rustic look.

Who wants to hear this start up one day? 🖐️ @churchequipped has one cool 34 Ford coupe. Here it is at the #gnrs2019 show in Pomona. From what I can find credit goes to @southcityrodandcustom @donnywelch @kustomprodigy and @condercustom
Great job to everyone that had their hands in this project. We are looking forward to seeing it finished in the future.

While at the @lomanrods shop yesterday I took a few photos - of what I can show you - for this brief video. There are a few cars that are top secret 🤫 and cannot be shown! The Cadillac is on an @artmorrisonenterprises chassis, the split-window Corvette is an all numbers matching Fuel-injected car, and @johncompton34 Chevelle are just some of the builds going on now - along with my 32 Roadster and 32 Studebaker Rockne. You can see an all-steel 41 Willys build in my previous post. They have several new builds that should be ready in 2019. Stay tuned.

Willys Wednesday! What's this? Just another All-steel 41 Willys being built at the @lomanrods shop in Tipp City, OH. This one will be running a hemi in it. It has a lot of work to go, but will end up a pretty cool piece! Check out @lomanrods for more builds. Swipe ⬅️ for more photos of this build.

@twpokey 32 Ford Build and Photos - Part 2️⃣
There was no way I could post all of the quality photos from @royboyprods in just one post. The first two photos - Swipe ⬅️, we’re just too great to bury behind others. The @hotrodgarageinc built 32 with @dayton_wire_wheel wires has a perfect stance that many strive to achieve.
The only thing I need to do next is to get some more photos of this car myself and get @twpokey to give me a ride!
Check out @royboyprods website at royboyproductions.com for their event coverage, photos and store. Thanks again for allowing me to share your work!
If you have an amazing car to share, please share your story and photos with me by emailing opposingcylinders@gmail.com.

A Friendship That Stands the Test of Time! Part 1️⃣
For @twpokey, his love of cars began at a young age through building models. For Jason Smith with @hotrodgarageinc, he was the guy that wanted to turn such models into a reality. Growing up and going to high school together, Tim and Jason maintained their close friendship over the years. So after Tim bought a 32 coupe as a project, who better to complete the build other than Jason and the crew at @hotrodgarageinc. According to Tim, “It was easy to decide on who was going to build the car.” The Harwood body underwent some changes including a @waldenspeedshop metal top to give it a steel car look. Once the body was smoothed to perfection, the Jaguar British racing green paint was applied. The chassis was massaged to ensure that the stance was just right. Just A Hobby frame rails were used with a modified front and rear cross member. For a hotrod look and feel, a 5 inch dropped So-Cal drilled axle rests under the front.
A fresh LS6 was topped off with a Hilborn 8-stack injection done by @autotrend_efi. A 6-speed sends the approx. 500 HP through a 9in. Ford rearend with 4:10 gears.
Tim and Jason knew that having the right stance and paint job wasn’t enough for the duece. It was then determined that an amazing interior and set of wheels were needed to finish the car off. @sidchavers stitched the black leather and 59 Cadillac Eldorado inserts to create a beautiful interior for the car. @dayton_wire_wheel provided the 15x4 and 18x9 triple-laced wire wheels with chrome knockoffs.
Among being recognized as a Top 5 contender for Street Rod of the Year in 2017, the 32 has garnered attention across the country. Through my conversations with Tim, the best aspect of having such a hotrod has been all of the friendships he has developed - New and Old. After all, it is all about the people we have in our lives that means the most.
A special thanks goes to @royboyprods for their generosity in allowing me to share some of their photos in this post. Check out their page and website for lots of goodies👍. #opposingcylinders #32ford #duece #hotrod #1932ford #32fordhotrod #hotrodbuild #hotrodstories #streetrod

Roadster Build update. @lomanrods has the hood and grill shell being fitted now. The floor is cut for the brake pedal and my new heater is ready to be rebuilt so it can be mocked up under the dash. The shift handle, emergency brake, gas pedal and more have been ordered. I will try to post more pictures of the build as it goes along.

Here is another piece added for the roadster build. @twpokey hooked me up with a Vintage Heater to keep my wife warm and toasty inside the roadster. I can't wait to see it all redone, painted slick and under the dash! Thanks Tim for all your help and kindness.

More shinnys things for the hotrod.. Really need to pull my finger out and get this done #hotrodbuild
@lomanrods now has the body on the #peteandjakes chassis. We are switching motors and will put a new crate 355ci small block in it. The LT1 that was going in is now for sale (see previous post for details). You will also see the exhaust tucked in nice along the rear frame rail. I will try to post progress pictures of the build as it goes along.

@lomanrods continues progress on the roadster chassis. The custom exhaust is on, new headers, and @gennieshifter. The new fuel pump for the LT1 is on the way for the gas tank. There are lots of little items to get done before the body goes on the #peteandjakes chassis. I can't wait to see the chassis done and body beginning to be gapped.

This photo was from the Detroit Street Rod Nationals and Street Rod Magazine, October, 1972. My father is standing in front of the car pointing something out on the Rockne.
It is currently going through a rebuild at @lomanrods and will hopefully be out in a few years. Old photos will be the only thing shown at this time. Everything else is "top secret" 😁. #opposingcylinders #rockne #studebaker #studebakerrockne #32coupe #32rockne #1932rockne #1932studebakerrockne #historicalhotrod #hotrodlifestyle #hotrodlife #hotrod #hotrodbuild #streetrod #streetrodmagazine #streetrodlife #rarecar #notaford #candypurple #purple #purplemante #automotivearticles #straightaxle #lomanrods #historicalphotos
My #peteandjakes chassis is getting ready for the body to go on at @lomanrods shop. My "driver" roadster is running the old Rockne motor with a 700r4. No frequent gas stops like the Willys. I will try to post progress pictures of the build as it goes along.

Thanks Chad with #adamshotrods for setting me up with my new roadster body. It is now back in Ohio and at @lomanrods ready to be paired up with my #peteandjakes chassis. All the parts are ready, the chassis and motor are there as well. My new roadster will be a driver and the goal is to have it ready to be on the road for 2019. Who wants to do a road trip? Stay tuned for upcoming build pictures.

Here is the follow up article from our post yesterday. This article is from Rod Action Magazine, January, 1973.
The Studebaker corporation was located in South Bend, IN as well as Notre Dame. Knute Rockne was the football coach for the Fighting Irish then and worked for the Studebaker corporation in the off season as well. In 1931, Rockne died in a plane crash. Therefore, the Studebaker corporation decided to build a line of cars with Rockne's name on them. In 1932, there were 500 Rockne models built which included coupes, sedans and roadsters. These photos were taken by Joe Mayall.

Repost from @opposingcylinders using @RepostRegramApp - A Father and Son's Bond Goes Deeper Than Just Hot Rods!
@justin_moriarty recalls as a 10 year old boy his father built their 40 Ford coupe (see picture). Justin and his brother would ride along across the country to car shows in the 40 Ford to places such as: Minnesota, Oklahoma, Louisville and Columbus. As the boys grew older the hot rod bug remained in them. In the early 1990's, Justin's brother wanted a 40 Ford of his own. The Father/Son team built a 40 Ford pickup together!
While 40 Fords were the passion of his father and his brother, Justin says, “The 1932 Ford was more my style." The wheels went into motion for plans of a roadster build one day.
In 2009, Justin's father, now being a retired union electrician, experienced a health concern and developed the need for a kidney transplant. For the father that had been helping others, was now in need of receiving something himself. Who better to step in and help than one of his own sons? It was Justin that was there and able to donate one of his kidneys to his father.
After Justin's father began to feel better, his father suggested, "It was time to build the roadster." One of the first parts that his dad surprised him with was the V Spreader Bar. The Father/Son team took five and a half years to build the roadster "piece by piece." The Spreader Bar that helped start the build, in fact, ended up being the very last piece that they put on the car together (see picture). According to Justin, "It's been my turn the last couple of years to have taken him to all of the out of town shows and most of the local shows to continue their journey together." The relationship between a father and son has now come full circle.
In conclusion, the next time you see a slick, bright green roadster going down the road, look close - it may just be a father and son smiling while riding along - living in the moment together!

This article of the Rockne is from Popular Hot Rodding - February, 1973. Swipe ⬅️ for more information.
It always makes me laugh when people see the car and say they used to "have one just like it" or that "their neighbor down the street has one also." As the article states correctly, there were only 500 Studebaker Rockne cars built in 1932 which included coupes, sedans and roadsters. According to the National Registry, there are approximately around 200 completed Rockne's left known to exist.
Prior to becoming a Street Rod and my father owning it, the car was a drag car and ran at the NHRA Nationals in Indy, per the article.
The Rockne won the "Most Unusual Use of Parts" award at the first Street Rod Nationals in Peoria. There wasn't a Builder's Choice back then as the owners were the builders and the cars were all driven!
The 66 Corvette 327 engine that it ran later made its way into my very first car, a 1978 Malibu (see post on May 19th, 2018). It was a great engine with plenty of power for a 16 year old kid. I ran that car till my mid 20's.
Stay tuned for more history of the Rockne coupe over the next few days.

This photo is from Hot Rod Deluxe magazine, March 2010. I always look at these old photos and think my father had very few worries in his life. At this time in his life, my brother and I were yet to be born. He was just a young guy cruising around in a cool hot rod. After my brother and I were born, I would lay in the package tray and roll down the rear window and my brother would sit in between my parents. We drove the car everywhere. *
Looking through these old pictures helps me to keep pushing through the long process of having the car rebuilt again and dreaming of the day for it to be out, better than ever. *
Who knows, maybe an awesome paint company will mix a great shade of purple for the car or @evod_industries will design a one off set of wheels for it. *
Check out our previous posts in this car and stay tuned over the next few days for more historical photos. *

This is a picture from Rod & Custom Magazine in November, 1970. My father was spotted laying down with his friends at the very first Street Rod Nationals in Peoria. One of my father's best friends was sitting in the picture that owned the Willys that I now have. The Rockne was black in Peoria, where it won an award, and came out in the candy purple paint the following year. After our father passed away we rebuilt the car again over a 13 year period and it won at the 40th Nationals in Louisville. It was black then as well. It is currently going through it's final extensive rebuild at @lomanrods. This time it will have it all!! What color do you think it will be next time? I will be sharing more historical photos over the next several days so stay tuned if you would like to see more.

Who remembers this car? My father bought this 32 Studebaker Rockne in 1968. This is a picture from Rod & Custom Magazine in August, 1972. It was at the first Street Rod Nationals in Peoria when it was black (see our post tomorrow). However, it was most recognized for it's candy purple paint the following year. I will be sharing more historical photos over the next several days so stay tuned if you would like to see more. It has seen numerous changes over the years and was out of sight for over 20 years as my father had to build a matching 32 Rockne sedan to fit our growing family into. It is currently going through a full restoration at @lomanrods.
