  4. That would be so dam cool if ya could make the dirt drags in Co. I will get you the dates we are planning on being at El-Mirage. It's my plan to bring my tent & sleeping bag and spend a couple nights there. The rest of the photo group will rent a couple motor homes and stay in them. I just thought it would be fun to do it like they did back in the old days and camp out.

  8. I like the color....sure does have a lot of shine for having lot's of flattener in it.

  9. Yes sir it does. It’s all blocked sanded and ready for its final coat! The chemistry was off a little. The color is right but it didn’t do what we wanted it to do. So we beat it up and now it will comply!!!!

  10. As I checked in for a progress report, I saw the painted car. My first thought was "I hope he's just putting a preservation coat on the Hypersonic. Too shiney a paint job would ruin it." Glad to see it's someone elses ride.
    Maybe it's just my eyes and cheap laptop, but, it looks almost like glossy red oxide primer. I'm sure in person and real sunlight it looks totally different.
     
  11. No I didn’t touch the hypersonic special. It’s a done car. It’s over 80 years old no need for fake tits. Plus it’s way cooler than a painted up car. The other car car is painted in a satin Maroon over true lacquer red oxide primer. Looks dark in the dark and super vibrant in the sun. Special top secret color mix

  14. Looks like some fun to be had . . . do you know anything about it? It has mechanical brakes, but they were probably not used.
     
  15. Dale how the hell ya been! I seen the photos from flop of trog looks like you guys had a blast. I don’t know anything about the car. I think it was never completed. Something someone started and moved on to the next project. It has a 33-34 front end. If I had a set of front doors or 32 5w doors I would make it back into a fourdoor. Or run two flatheads in it. Or a straight six. It’s too cool to leave it where it was. Guy had at least 10 guys look at it and they all passed. Original firewall, asc rails, and the body is pretty nice. It’s just junk... lol

  27. Dennis I also bought this 1964 dodge custom 880 bubble top! Bought it in Bremerton Washington and drove it to Portland Oregon. Then next day drove back to Vancouver Washington to get the 32 pickup. Fun ride bought it sight un seen and hit the highway. Guy I got if from thought I was crazy to drive it that far. None of the gauges work... BE24F9CB-440F-4F8F-8CDF-FE5BEF50768D.png

    Bruce, I wish I had known you were coming up, I live just a couple of miles from where you bought the 32 pickup. Pop and I have been Hot Rodders together for over 40 years
