  1. Still driving the wheels off my coupe and stopped by my childhood home for a personal trip down memory lane:

  2. BUMP!

    A buddy of mine just sold his '47 sedan ..but he picked up a '47 coupe! This is the only pic I have because he no sooner got it in the garage than it snowed.. Will give him time to personalize it!

    I'm going with a stock axle too, do you know what else is used on the front?

    I have the original springs ,axle.. I replaced the shock mounts and tube shocks. brakes. My car came to me already with a front disc conversion. Just haven't taken time to determine bolt pattern or wheel type.

  23. Moriarity posted this one at sometime - very similar image (same show - maybe the same photographer):

    And I have this one in my collection of wallpapers as well:

    And.. finally a poor one of the hind-end:

    I really thought I would have a few more of this nice custom short-door, but that's it so far..
