    A bunch of friends stop by Ted’s shop to have a beer and to help lift a freshly painted Model A body onto its chassis.

    Thanks, Ted. Is always great to be a part of one of your projects. And it's inspiring that so many guys you know are ready to drop everything to lend a hand for an evening.

    Great video!
    Usually 10 or 12 guys... 3-4 who are actually working on the car and the others hanging around drinking beer, watching the others work and telling them the correct way to do it, and of course that they´d do it in a heartbeat , but their backs are hurting so bad...hahaha
    ..these are the best times in the Garage, b.s.´ing with friends.
     
  7. Nice group effort. Sweet Model A as well.

    I take it the owner was the only guy dressed respectably in amongst a mob of shorts wearing beer-drinking derelictsLOL
    I picked you out in the crowd Mark but didn't recognise Ted with his glasses on so he could see the screws to fit the doors!!

    That's what she said!!
    1:18 on the video


    I was watching this last night and my wife says "your phone is going off"
    I said "no it's not," " yes it is I heard it". I said nope it's the video. I just heard it, ahoooga !
    Honey it's the video, there's a garage full of guys working on a Model A ford and you know somebody is gonna have an Ahoooga sound on their phone, maybe all of them, I'm the only one you know but trust me I'm not the only one into this old stuff.
    I guess you had to be there but it was pretty funny. We had a good laugh

    that is funny, my "main" ring tone sounds like a vintage wall phone. i was in a store one time and that ring could be heard, every guy, of my vintage in sight, checked their phone.......
