Lol- sure, grab an Ultra instead. I'm a bourbon guy myself, so I won't be drinking a Corona either!
Grab an ice cold Corona, pop the top and sit in your car in the garage & make engine noises whilst drinking said beer. Instant, safe Corona...
The Lone Star Deluxe has been postponed, from March 28 to Sept 26:
How big of a show is the Invasion?
Just saw they cancelled the Austin Rodeo. Not a good sign for the Roundup, as they're held at the same venue.
There's a thread on the main board about it:
Have a hotel booked, so I'll be watching this thread closely.
Awesome- thank you for organizing another one of these great Crawls. Hands down the favorite part of the Roundup for me & my wife.
Odd the '20 show isn't too far away, but nothing posted on the HAMB?
Looking forward to the Garage Crawl myself.
Be there in my '62 Clunkerbird...
Looks like the dog feels the same way about it! LOL
You might get some ideas from that thread.
Now that's an anvil!
Like's already been suggested: I'd stop and ask "what's the story" on the car, not "is the car for sale?". When the ol' coot hollers "it ain't fer...
Just read all 10 pages of this thread. To say "awesome job" seems like such an understatement, but, well... awesome job!
Thank you for posting the cab cartoon, Ryan. We're about the same age, I believe, and this is also one of my earliest "car memories". I often...
Clayton's (MrModelT) roadster rules. It's influenced very heavily by the Aldrich car. Be sure to find & watch the video of him & the T with Jay...
Awesome- thank you for posting that up! I knew somebody on the HAMB would know the car's backstory. Fills in a lot of the questions I had.
Not the '26-7 body, but I'd go for the same vibe & follow the Aldrich roadster:
Can't get any more traditional than that. .
Tracked the pic back to: http://hotrodcraft.com/index.php?topic=555.0
There's a few more of it there, but it's just a thread on another forum w/...
I stumbled across a pic of this T while image searching "gow jobs". Anybody recognize it?
I'd love to hear the history on it & find out some of...
Been near 8 months since the last update- how's the project coming?
Cool, thanks for the pics. Looks like it'll be a fun ride when you're done.
Your table- are the 4x4 posts concreted in the ground? I was planning...
On an on-topic note, thanks for the suggestion about Sid's site. Good info there!
Gow has it's roots in Cantonese words for opium, yao kao. I'm assuming those words...
Gow like plow , IMO.
If it were pronounced like "Go", what's the point of adding an extra letter instead of just writing it "go- job"?
Oh, no- I'm not gonna use '30s sheetmetal. Plan is an early '20s T roadster w a turtle deck.
I get what you're saying about the A chassis, as...
Cool, thanks a ton for the replies! I really appreciate it.
It's funny- searches for T chassis info turn up all sorts of T Bucket results, but...
Looking into building a '30s style gow job.
Originally I'd thought of a T speedster, but decided I liked the thirties look better. Been reading...
Did you ever do this? I'm on a mission to build something along the same lines, but am in "parts collecting" stage right now.
Can the A axles be...
