    Nice, Dave! Good for you! I've been so far out of the loop that I've missed all of this. Looking good, man!

    Brent , Good to hear from you. It's been quite a while. If you get a chance check out the thread on Moe's Modified. It is painted and upholstered. Need to visit him some weekend to document the completion of Moe's Modified ! Bet it looks BITCHIN' ! ! !
    Also, check my thread on my '29 "A" Modifed. Loaded it all by myself. Sure was simple and easy to do.
    Need to check the thread on your "T".

    Dave :)

    Brent, Glad to hear of your first on the way ! My wife and I have - 7 children (first husband made 5, second made 2, #3 (me) showed up after the works were turned off - thanks Momma Nature). Then the kids have given us 18 grand-children, 26 great-grandchildren (#27 due in Sep) and 1 Great-Great grandchildren (#2 due in Apr).
    Most of the grandchildren say they don't know me and don't recognize me as being related to them . . . NICE !

    Hope your first is born healthy and full of life. May they bring you and your wife the most in Joy !

    Dave and Bernice :)

    I'm not usually a fan of channeled A's but this one has a great stance and roof height to accommodate

    Looks really good so far.

    BOP-Nut, Thanks for the comment. Being from northern New York I have always liked the East Coast look. Yah, you know - "East Coast Cool" !

    Here are a few to update how my coupe is coming along.
    First is Lee checking the front cover for a different way to hook up a water pump (stay tuned).
    Second is the motor from a low angle. Shows the motor mount.
    Third is a low angle shot of the cab.

    Dave :eek:

    Jeff, Thanks so much for the comments. The nose will be after I get it running with just an "A" Shell. Hope I don't have to wait too long to get it built.

    The '41 dash is because it is what I have. The dash is one I got at the Long Beach Swap Meet that was all ready narrowed. Sure glad I turned around and got it !

    Hope to show you more progress in the next month or so.

    Dave :)

    Well Guys not much to share. "A" went on back burner. No one to work on it. Lost my wife in Apr Had $6K of tools stolen from my shop. I'm not crying as I hope that the future will see the car on the road.

    All the best to you all !

    Tim, Thanks so much for your kind words. Been off of the HAMB for a while. Got my chopped '41 in my lady's garage. She wants me to bring my '57 F-100 Panel Truck over so we can get it converted to a 460 V-8 Beer Delivery Special !
