    As many of us here we have a lot of ''not ready projects''. And a dream to make them just ready. In my case i can reveal that i have several. And one of them is a European Fordor. I try to make recipes of my projects so i know what not to sell and what to looking for to buy. For this car i have a lot but not everything.
    If you have any ''Some day'' cars to show, so be my guests here.
    Story of the car is:
    A friend called me one day and told me, ''I was at an old men today and bought a distributor to a flathead. You want to buy it?''
    Tell me more. And he told me it was an Angled one for front montage. I asked how much he want to make, so we agreed 350$. Some days later another friend saw it and told me that it came from his car ( a 32 roadster build in the early 60 ties), the white one below. i trade it for a nice European Fordor body. So here we are. A body with no chassi. My recipe is a daily driver street rod with a little bit of comfort.
    The Brewster Green on the picture is the vision.
    Hang on this trip..

    That body looks great. Other side as good? So you're looking for a rolling frame? Engine?
    My Swedish is limited to the Sedin twins, Edler, Gradin and a few other former Vancouver Canucks but I'm a little confused with the distributor thing... you paid $350 for it? Wow, expensive in Sweden. And what did you trade for the sedan?

    Good luck, I'll be watching with interest!

    Sorry. Little unclear about the distributor. Mag for flathead Ford like the one below..And about the chassi, it will be a part of the story.

    Really Cool how all of us Hot Rodders around the world understand each other. Good idea about establishing a vision for "someday". The trick is staying true to that vision and not getting distracted by the latest fad. I usually develop a list of parts that I need and keep it in my wallet for quick reference when I'm at swap meets. I'll keep an eye out for your progress.
