Should be to the salt this coming year
This is a different car then my grandpas but only a couple blocks away during 1952. Wish I had my grandpas car. He lost his liceance racing in it.
I have plain Jane , or standard deuce roadster crashed in 1949 almost got it running again-
(Hiboy) the Rayjo b- motor did not come with it , frame was bent , front fenders crushed
Leaving it with its scratch and bruises (makes it real ) I will try to put a photo soon !
Hey neighbor, I wonder if you know people that I know.
Nice thread Don. I can add one to the mix. BTW do you have any idea of how many meeting those qualifications have been posted in total? Would be nice to a number count.
All Henry, my latest acquisition with a tire and wheel change, origional
ly owned and built by Jack Stirnimann way back.
Stunning car John any more details
Jack bought it in 71, was the best quality body, all nos fenders, boards, bumpers. 59ab, 276, 65 f100 three speed w/ jeep top loader,bronco 9" narrowed, transverse leafs, still retains its K member.2" chopped genie top, Aubern dash.
I own one and am currently building it. The panel below the trunk and floors are Brookville. I also had to repair the bottom of both doors. Beyond that it is all original.
From the day I bought it to about 3 months ago. There is about a 15 months in between pictures.
Model 18 roadster with original v8/trans/rear end/ chassis .
Definitely my favorite car out of all the ones I’ve ever owned
Here is our catch of the week! Our new Projekt Deluxe roadster best regards from Germany!
This is mine.. Part's from all over the world.
Ok here's mine. During it's time it had a different dash grafted in. It only took me 25 years to finally identify the dash as a 1927 or 28 Oakland Pontiac.
One in my backyard
We have 5 in our car club in DFW.
A 4cyl (burgundy one)that hadn't seen the light of day since the early 1980's.Found in Nimes in the south of France 4 months ago.Sold new in Paris .The wheels and tires on it was to get it to move around easier.The blue one is a V8 and still has the orig 32 V8 in it.Its here in the south also.Both escaped the war.
WOW!------Many years have passed since I started this thread! Lots of neat pix & stories too!
Sure miss 'ol DEUCE RANDY!!, he was the source of lots of info!
At 86, I have driven my '32 roadster down to my son's in SOCAL & it will remain there for him to enjoy along with his son (my grandson). Then I can fly down each year for the LAR show & swap, pick up my roadster, drive it to Pomona & help with registering open cars for our show. See you there!
Passing your roadster on to your son is outstanding. One day I will be doing the same but for now my son has to wait a bit longer. Im still driving the wheels off the car been doing it for 45 years so far and hope to do so for another couple of decades. Keeping our roadsters in the family it dose not get any better than that.
Missed you at the Southern Oregon Deuce run this year. Lots of fun as usual. Next year will be the last at Scott and Dianne’s hometown of Medford. Maybe you can make it.

The proud new owner of this one should get it into the registry...
There is a registry ? I have an early Duece “cheapie “
