The Jalopy Journal
I figured you wouldn’t take my offer, but I had to try. My suggestion would be to leave the sheet metal in stock configuration, and get the proper...
I'll make you a deal, that way you don't have to modify that poor old body. I'll swap a brand new Brookville roadster body that doesn't have the...
Speaking of former daily drivers, your old Riviera sold again at Barrett Jackson Las Vegas this past weekend @Ryan.
Congrats on getting the sedan running @Nailhead Jason, the car looks great!!
Great work Jason. Where did you find the u-shaped spacers for the Hurst mount?
You are living the dream @J.Ukrop!!
I believe the price was 15K when I looked at it Friday.
Thanks @Ryan, the ‘39 is the most enjoyable car we have in the fleet.
Thanks for the scans @Ryan, I learned some interesting info about the stock driveline in my '39.
I sure hope your purchase included the crybaby doll that is perched on the front bumper in the first picture @gonzo!
Kinda, sorta, not really an overhead shot of our roadster from this past weekend...
You knocked it out of the park @ericjustus, can't wait to see at the LARS in June.
Great car @1929CDAN , especially the black grille shell!
Great feature @J.Ukrop! It would be great to see someone (@squirrel perhaps?) build a full-scale version of the Cameo pickup.
Is that the same Rody that was in the East Denver Boys over 30 years ago @winduptoy?!
I chose to go with the narrower axle, and shorten/narrow the stock wishbone like @hot rod pro and @CTaulbert documented. I used a 46.5 inch...
Years ago @hot rod pro and @CTaulbert both posted details about lowering ‘39/40 Fords. My ‘39 is not super low, but the narrowed axle (46.5”...
The '40 was built in Prescott, AZ by the late Garth Bowie. I believe it now resides in Las Vegas with the DeHaras family.
Thanks for the detailed reply @pgan.
You may have mentioned it earlier @pgan, but are you planning to run a mechanical fuel pump with the Hurst-style front mount, or did you plumb in...
We were there for 3 days and I still managed to miss half of the cars you posted! Thanks.
Green hot rods with four doors are lame Joey, especially when they have fog lights!
Are you using a dropped axle and transverse spring, or did you switch to a Mustang II style front suspension? If you are running an axle/spring...
Looks great Rusty. Any plans for a belt driven fan?
Wait, what? When did you get a '40 @lurker mick?

the 2017 Hot Rod Hill Climb is probably old news to some people at this point, but I thought I would post some pictures from our trip home.
Thanks Reggie, it was great to meet you this weekend. Have fun in Lafayette.
Great write up @J.Ukrop. Some pics from the reliability run earlier today:
Great photos Joey.
