This week has been a memorable one with a great story. Originally from Langley BC, I’ve been working in Western Australia at a hotrod and customs shop in Dunsborough - south of Perth. A very small beautiful surf town. A four year hiatus from Canada brought me back to have a well overdue visit with family. Along the way I’ve been collecting parts to build my dream car and ship it back with me to have a piece of home to drive down south. Over the past few months I’ve collected everything from head lights, tail lights, wheels, wish bones, juice brakes and well now a complete 29’ roadster. I’ll be shipping this home with me and starting the build next month. I drove from Langley over the weekend to visit my brother in Grand Forks and brought an empty trailer in hopes to purchase a 29 Roadster I never saw photos of but took the guys word it was worth the drive past Grand Forks to Nelson. Dad and I packed a lunch and began driving from my Brothers place and headed east. I didn’t sleep the night prior as I was too excited to see this car I’ve only heard stories about and had a pretty descriptive image as to what it looked like. But was also nervous not seeing any photos and began to worry what if... All those worries were put to bed as we drove over the crest in his driveway and saw it sitting on a trailer posing. It was love at first sight. HaHa. This Roadster was even more than I expected, and the owner was as genuine and honest as he was on the phone. A true bloke. Explaining to me it had been the oldest registered car on file in Nelson. An 89 year old piece of history that hadn’t left home. It was amazing to hear all the stories. After an hour or so I had to break my stare away make a deal and get back of the road. It’s made it safely back to the coast and will shortly begin it’s long journey to Australia where I can then dig in get this back on the road. I’ll keep you posted with lots of photos and steps as it under goes the face lift. It will be kept traditional. Running: ‘40 Ford juice brakes ‘40 Ford rear end ‘40 original wheels ‘47 Merc flat head ‘32 original frame rails Guide 682-C headlights ‘39 Chevy tail lights And much more. I will list more as we go. Here’s a few photos I took over the weekend and during the road trip. Sent from my iPhone using H.A.M.B.
