    LOL I used to go to a doctor that had Hustler in his waiting room. I think he must have specialized in the Darwinian Drip. :eek: :D

  2. Now Beeno,your going off topic but I will interject this thought on the subject.

    I don't have a clue as to what the Darwinian Drip is unless it a local colloquialism for the clap,but I have never seen anything in a doctors waiting room any more stimulating than National Geographic. HRP

    Picked this up for a song and a dance, not real sure what I am going to do with it, but may start to repair someday when I have the time.

    Looks like a worthy project

    I think a lot of them will save if a man just wants to and has a little patience.

    IMG_20170422_162151404.jpg About 30 yrs ago I was at Carlisle and saw a Hercules grille shell. Thought it was cool, but wouldn't pay the $200 the guy wanted. Finally found one about 10 years back and put it on an open wheeled 38 Dodge p/up I was working on. Sold it with the truck. New owner didn't use it, so I bought it back. May put it on my A Tudor, but I'm getting flack from my son and buddies that it's too rat roddy. Not sure what to do.....

    I would say that just hanging 19 deuce grills on the wall is pretty much hoarding. Sorry. Looks pretty obvious.

  17. Displayed like that I would not call it hoarding, I'd call it an art installation!

  19. I only hang up the rough ones that are harder to sell. I either use the good ones or sell them to help fund the current project.[​IMG]

  20. That's a clean looking unit

    Separate story. My uncle found a 33 ford shell in the weeds at his friends farmstead. Owner had never seen it and didn't know when it came around. He's been there 55-60 years and his dad or grandpa must've left it a looong time ago. Told Unc to take it. Hung it for a bit and then sold it for big bucks. $150! (3 years ago)

    Is there a need for a HAMB "Original 1932 Ford Grill & Shell Wallhanger list" ? Wonder what the total number is? Bob
     
  22. Picked up this 36 Hudson grille last summer at a Hudson show in Chattanooga, TN. One area of the slim vertical grille bars was broken out, so I covered it up with a trunk emblem from a 53 Hornet and a radio delete plate from a 49 Nash Ambassador. Stuck a badge from the drivers door panel from a 52 Hornet over the crank hole. Lit it up from behind with some LED lighting.

    I could use that back area were the Radiator Cap goes.
