found this at an antique tractor show and couldn't pass it up
Way to go!
found a 30 model a body virgin sheetmetal for a song and dance!
I went to a Rod Run today. The best thing there was a 5 window coupe that the guy built in 1959. Awesome car and it was a nice car. Talked to him for a while and got the history of the car and him. LOL
Found it, yes. Purchase it,no. I don't think it will ever be for sale. Very kool anyway.
found a neat old coke cooler for 3 bucks at a senior center thrift store.
Bought a .99 cent item at 7-11 and got a nice 1902 Indian Head penny as change.
not too cool but picked up a decent holley 600cfm 4 barell for $10 at a garage sale !
I found my overheating problem, now my car is cool again
found the bottom of a beer can, lots of 12 oz curls
bought a box of 60+ 1950's vargas pinups posters for $20 at a yard sale
scored a free model t rolling chassis, well, its more of a sliding model t chassis as the wheels are gone.
That hasn't happened to me since the 60's. That's pretty incredible that the thing was still in circulation.
Picked up this old K&S Hornet minibike
Spied the roof of an old Studebaker behind a fence. ASked about it and got the tour. Turned out to be a really really clean 1949 coupe in navy blue with wide whites. Too bad it wasn't a bullet nose. Old guy had it in his garage for years and threw it out back when he bought himself a new PT cruiser turbo convertible. A buffing and cleaning and touch up and the car is ready to roll proud. He's asking $6,500 which I think is too much. I'm going to go back with a camera and offer $4,000. I hate to let it sit there and rot into the ground becuase it is way too clean to do that to it.
I'll post some pics tomorrow of the 1930's to 1940's ANCO display I bought also. really good shape and still has some wipers and blades in the boxes!!
I found a 1929 chevy car frame with axles . A 30 pack of beer later it was on its way to my place.
got like 50 old records out of the trash a few days ago.
I found my garage floor.. haven't seen in it in 2 years.
found my self stuck on the side of the road 2 hours away from anything this saturday on my way to the antique stock car show this week end busted break line ..means no brakes at all ..had to wait for someone to come bye with a vice grip to clamp the line so i could drive home ..no AAA out my way..
i saved a old bike from the dumpster now i need one of those ebay engine kits
Snap-On 1/2" drive swivel head rachet extra long like a breaker bar. Dude wanted $35, I gave him $20. Felt like winning a mini lottery!
Found a whole junkyard for the taking but this is all we could get in the car, plus some old oil pumps and enamel signs. Definately one of my better days of scrounging
Now THAT's a find.
I had two good yard sale finds this weekend, neither car related but still pretty cool!
#1) A vintage rotory mower that works awesome! I mow with a big tractor and can't get to some small parts of the yard, this will be great!
#2)Vintage pram (fancy word for stroller). Turns out it is a Silver Cross/Wilson Wedgwood made in England in the 1960s. A little elbow grease then ebay here we come
I found out how to break the driveshaft in my racecar... Dammit!
How's that old saying go?
If you're not Breakin' it,you're not Racin' it....
I found a super clean O/T car.
CL and E$%y here I come!
a complete ford 300 inch 6 for $25
1951 F-1 at a local car show. I shot the shit with that old guy for a half hour. Learned a lot about my truck, and what things he did that I like. Not to many F-1's around here, so it was good to see. Truck was not for sale, nor did I have the cash to afford even a coke.
An M5 tailgate! Cool score!
i found out that my wife and mother in law have more home improvment ideas then then the fuckin people on TLC.. Ill never get my car done
