    Glad to see it was a good turn out. Was there any cars for sale?
  2. My rebuilding after the crash thread has a few. I think there is one from March this year.

  4. The cruise to Galena had about 20 cars. Everyone made it just fine. Our destination was a blacksmith's shop. To get there we had to drive through galenas historic downtown. The architecture of the buildings is amazing. They all seem to be from the 1800s. The blacksmith's shop is the original building on the original property. It's always been in business since 1840. The guys inside were very friendly. They explained how they work the metal. We were allowed to ask questions while they worked. Every were you looked there was cool old stuff I wanted in my shop. Hats off to the guys that planned this cruise. The downtown area has a lot to see and do. 20190503_143029.jpg 20190503_143034.jpg 20190503_143040.jpg 20190503_143040.jpg 20190503_143046.jpg

    Yes I am responsible for that little roadster. They were trying to get some cars for a TROG inspired dirt drag race on the track and a buddy asked if I thought I could build something. Of course I have a ton of parts laying around, so I told him I would give it my best. Trouble is, that was March 19th and I had already planned to 6 day road trip to Texas in the Chari-T and had paid sponsorships so I had to go. That left something around 37 days of build time before I had to pack up for Torquefest. It is a 27 T on a Z'd A frame with a T rear spring, 33-36 front axle, 37 rear converted to spring over using cut off A housing ends, 59AB flathead and trans, F1 crossmember/steering box/column shifter, 46-8 juice brakes, T rear fenders with A splash aprons and 4.50/7.00-16 Firestones. It is just a thrashed together Jalopy.

    Thanks for the info. Looks great. I was expecting it to be an old build based on a few photos I saw. Nice job.

    Galena is pretty cool place. The town in the Early to mid 1800's was destined to be bigger than Chicago because of the discovery of lead in the area. 13 river boats came up the river a day to Galena back in the day. Of course General Grant lived here before entering the Civil War. As lead dwindled so did the town. It was great that people had the foresight to keep the town the way it was back in the hey day.
