The Jalopy Journal
A shot from yesterday, this is its first time out in almost ten years.
For me too...
Otherwise, it's a great thread!
Do you know how much the seller wanted for it?
Thanks! I'll start a thread as soon as I get it home.
Putting this thread back to the top with a recent image of my '41. Fabian Valdez is doing the chop.
I liked it in primer, and have enjoyed seeing the progress over the last years. Now I am really looking forward to see it painted. It will be...
Congratulations, Patticake and Tinguy!
Wow, this is getting better and better! :D
This is such an inspiring thread, I have been following it since the beginning. Thank you, Kenneth, and god fortsättning! :)
Great shot, great car!
Lookin' good, DC!
Bringing back this earlier post as I just found this great thread. Thanks for showing us, Flop!
Got a question: As the lower bell in the pic has...
Just found this thread, it took some time to read it through. Great stuff! Just curious, will the brake/clutch pedals be F1 as well?
The height of the door window may not be completely off the mark, perhaps a little lower. The front window opening will shrink a bit with rubber...
Great looking car, with or without! May I ask what tire combo you are using? And is the rear crossmember raised on it? Sits just right, I think. :)
Nope, it has the stock axle set at ride height. It may be the wide garage wheels that makes it look like it has an independent suspension. It will...
There is a short piece about it here:
I sure do! It's on the cover in color, but it looks colorized. A real photo would be cool.
I will definitely steal that taillight idea, haven't...
I think this one was pretty neat:
I would like to show a few photos of a project that I am involved in. Some years ago I got this idea that it was time for me to get or build the...
That would be correct if it is a '41 ;) Otherwise, from '42 they all had that type of driprail.
You do great work, Jer! There is one thing that got me thinking though, and I hope you don't mind if I ask, but are the two grilles at slightly...
Thanks for the update pictures of the '41! I have anticipated them. I actually liked the the pointy end to the quarter window, but now when Paul...
This is getting better and better!
That's just stunning, Andreas! I have always admired that car, but now... Wow.
Not only straighter but also quite a bit wider. Compare the Caddy grille on Jesse's car to how it looks on a '42-'48. Just as you say, a...
Great car, and some beautiful shots of it!
I'm glad I was wrong about how it was done, now I got to learn how they really did it!! Thanks!!!
This will be interesting! To me it's clear that Jesse's car used '41 fenders, but I haven't figured out whether it had that part from a '46-'48...
You are right on the shape thing, all baby moons are definitely not equal. They may basically look the same, but it's the difference that matters....
