    '37 Buick convertible sedan. It's a dual-cowl convertible, which I don't believe Buick built from the factory (so, it's customized).

  9. Looks like the rear windshield is a boat item. Cool car, but I'd raise it up just a touch.

    I wouldn't describe this as a tub. It's a Delage convertible or cabriolet, with a conventional long trunk behind the folded top. Pretty car, in any case.

  14. As I recall Cam adapted some Ardun Covers to his small block Chev, so it looked to be an Ardun but really was "not an Ardun".

  15. You're right, it doesn't have enough radiator hoses to be an Ardun but just enough rediator hose to be a SBC

  18. What do you think those two tubular clamps on the left frame rail were for? Nitrous bottle? On board fire suppression system?

  20. This Deuce is a Kansas car driving across country, might be radiator overflow jug holder? Looks like the guy is a drummer headed to a gig in the 40's? Somebody else take a stab at it.
