    I’ve wanted a Roadster forever and while browsing the Facebook ads the other night I noticed an old picture of a Roadster and clicked on it, long story short I made the 2 1/2 hr drive early the next morning and snagged it. The gentleman’s father bought the car back in the 30’s and it’s been in the family ever since, they tore it apart but it never got restored like so many so he decided to sell it. It’s a late 31 car and has killer patina after I knocked the dirt off the fenders so I plan to leave it as is and maybe find a flathead for it. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Glad it never got restored as it looked to be a mild Hotrod of sorts. Congrats and please share the revival... What are those things on the hood stick on louvers?

    I’m not sure yet. I just picked up a pinched 32 chassis in Louisville because I’m about to start building my 31 coupe and then this popped up so now I’ve got to decide which one to build. I don’t think I can swing them both but we’ll see

    What is a late '31 as opposed to the other '31 cars ? Looks like quite a find.

    Here is a little tid-bit of useless information for you. If my chart is correct that 1951 Ohio license plate is from Geuega county, Ohio
