The Jalopy Journal
Big thanks for all your hard work guys. I started looking forward to next year on my way home. Always the best of times.
Seems like I've seen plenty of those wheels here and big headlights too.
They aren't Arrows, they have two small holes for the wiring.
This is my pal Andre's sedan.[ATTACH]
These are '30-'31 Deluxe top irons. Standard roadster's are different.[ATTACH]
Both '30-'31 and '32 Fords have two wood bows and a wood header.

A BRAND NEW CAR!!!!
Good seeing you Dan, great shots! Your Dad's car is my all time favorite '32 sedan.
Make the front floor removable. You'll be glad you did.
Stewart Warner mechanical in the cars I've built.

Thank you very much, finally have the real scoop.
gimpyshotrods, That's what's so confusing about this, there are so many varying opinions with no agreement. I've read S-10 forums etc, they can't...
Thanks, that's good to hear. When I built the car I used 70 weight gear oil based on the information I found back then.

Great time seeing old friends there today, big turnout. Sure wish they'd get some food trucks to come. A hot dog at 9 am really doesn't hit the spot.
[ATTACH] Early Ford spoon pedal, no cables just linkage.
It sure would be great if this run was in June for us west siders. Lots happening in September around here for real hot ford flathead cars.
Summit sells a 6000 rpm Stewart Warner tach but it doesn't come with a cup.
Would it come when I called it? Then no.
It's really not worth the trouble. Go out and find Ford wheels. They're still out there.
These are the super rare '32 Ford 24 louver hood sides[ATTACH]
I talked to Pete at Goodguys, yep that's his car. They emptied two fire extinguishers but couldn't slow it down. He's had that car for 42 years...
Nice start! You'll have a great car when you're done. Here's a picture of my 5-window with a three inch chop for some inspiration.[ATTACH]
They look like original Lions wheel covers to me but I'm no expert.
Someone had it chromed. We've seen a few here over the years.
Thanks for the coverage Paul. I couldn't make it back on Saturday. I like what the new owner of my old 5-window has done with it.
