    Got the bed mounted on the 40 Ford, bolted up the only rear fender I had on the passenger side. Cursed that I didn't have the drivers side rear and then Sunday night found one on the auction site a steel original the same price as a fiberglass one. Now just waiting for it to arrive. That will finish the body on the truck. Then I just have to get it running.

    Actually progress is being made to the T-Bird. Getting the mechanicals finished up before starting on body and paint. There's a top secret mod we're planning, but we need to get some other things finished first.

    Mine's come to a complete halt while we deal with my wife's health issues. I've pretty much lost all interest in working on it right now.

    With winter coming and no heat in the garage, I see no beginning or end in the near future! My poor Henry. :(

    Slow on the Studebaker. Soon to be heading backwards when we pull the body off the frame to go through it all.

    Mine is sitting under tarps staying dry for the wet Portland winter. Waiting on a float for the 1904. Hope to have it as my butt ugly (for the time being) daily driver by spring.
