    Have you ever wondered why Americans call it Milan when the people who live there call it Milano?
    I've always wondered why people say Christopher Columbus discovered America when his real name was Cristobal Colon

    Don't really know why you in the US call my town Milan... can tell you that Cristoforo Colombo discovered America in 1492....don't know who this Cristobal Colon is...

    What about calling Firenza "Florence"? Names are not supposed to be changed from language to language. By the way the Vikings were the first Europeans to "discover" North America about 500 years before that Italian working for the Spanish crown. And as far as dicovering anything the indigious people amy have something to say about that. Granted the europeans had flags and they did not! (If you have a flag you can claim a territory apparently.):)

    By the way you are a true artisan/ metal wizard.

    20 years ago I lived in southern France(near Marseille) and displayed my 32 roadster street rod in a car show at an auto museum near the French/Italian border .It was a Sunday and many Italians came across the border to the show.They went crazy when they saw my car.When they spoke to me they said it was impossible to have a car like that legally licensed in Italy.Have the rules changed?Will you be able to license the car in Italy?

    It can be done...you usually license the car in Germany or Austria, where it's a lot easier, and then you transfer the plates into Italy. It's very expensive...but can be done. I got italian plates for all my rods...32 sedan, 35 3 W and 39 coupe

    I've been following this since the beginning. Probably the best save ever.

    Incredible foresight...More incredible was the hands-on straightening and fabrication.
    You are an example for us here in the States, as stuff is 'available' here.

    I watched this with interest, as my rust projects are '27 T's, (2 roadsters and a touring)
    The '32 Three window is a much more difficult project, you have demonstrated that a project worth doing can be done! Congrats!

    Thank you Tudor...hope mine will turn out as fast and driveable as yours...
     
  28. Been sometime since I droped in to see how you were doing.......It is looking great as I knew it would....You are the man. This has been a very interesting build to watch, someone with your skill levels save a body as bad as this one was a fun ride for me.

    Great save, no one will ever believe it's the same car even with the photo. I would have left the rag top but the metal does help to strenghten that old body. Did you remember to prime under the fender tie bar (headlight bar)?

    Dave.
