1984 - The build that started it all

1933 Chevrolet Town Sedan chassis
My first adventure into the JAGUAR IRS.

On communicating with my welder/fabricator, we decided to use Polyurethane mounts to eliminate vibration


After some one on one discussions about braking systems with Tom Sweeting,
(owner, Power Brake Service, Santa Fe Springs, CA, and an avid Chev 409 racer/builder),
I decided I wanted vented rotors on my Jag IRS.

Tom had a lot of distain for car builders in the day -
having done many a brake modification to Hot Rods/custom cars for lack of proper braking.



I made great braking a main foundation of my build.
It became quite a design challenge for me....then came another challenge in having emergency/parking brakes.
