Is the 41 still for sale...shoebox looks great.
Holy crap you work fast!!! Didn't u start like in March?! Looks amazing, very nice flow on the chop.
sure- shoot me an offer. Worse thing that can happen is I'll say no.
What a great celebration of summer. Old and new friends, foodies and munchers, musicians and car guys, my sweety and my 4 wheeled sweeties. We all came together to celebrate summer and to have Tyler unveil my shoebox. No it's not a show car but a 35 year dream become reality.
Tyler's one of those amazing guys with incredible skills and a humble spirit who has great respect for what he does but not an inflated ego. I wanted him to unveil it so my friend could honour him for his outstanding work.
What's a get together without a big feed?
Music was supplied by a couple old friend.
Mike on the right had a Rockabilly band in the 80's, "the Delrays". Kevin on the left produced our Cassette we released.
Nothing beats a little Rockabilly and Ventures music on a hot summer afternoon.
Then there were the cars.
Yes Mary Jane, there was a 54 Flathead in North America... and this car came with it.
Tyler's 50 and mine together. A pretty proud moment for me.
Here she is. I'm stoked and loving it.
That looks great Lono!!!
Looks pretty cool,congrats!
Whats that steering wheel?
Enough with the pics , already ... I'm drooling all over my laptop over here , lol !!
Just kidding , of course . I'm digging the look . Very nice .
It's a 54 ford as best I can tell.
thanks everyone, I'm so loving being on the road with it.
Great house, awesome shop & die hard build!!!
The simplicity and high level of craftsmanship truly shows in your shoebox.
Everything looking terrific today... the Shoebox, the improved eatery, the grounds, and of course the friends.
Cheers my comrade, I just gotta swing up that way and get a closer look
Take 'er easy until I do, Spooky Two
Thanks for the info!
The car came out nice, looks good in that color.
stude caps! nice touch! Not usually a fan of big chops, but that looks killer
thanks everyone.... still lots to do but loving every minute!
Skirting the issue today...
Love the skirts, man!
Second on the skirts !! Sexy
Got the same skirts for mine too ... I'll 3rd the thumbs-up !
thanks guys. Another 2 weeks or cruising around before I pack it up for winter.
Been a perfect end to a busy and crazy summer.
Looks real good
you should do a tech on the stainless! it looks awesome!
The stainless was done by Tyler Selzer who chopped it. I look at it and think.... amazing.
Looks gorgeous. Love the color, is it a custom mix? Not usually a fan of chops like that but yours looks great. I think I'm gonna start looking for a shoebox now
thanks much, the colour is Hot Rod flatz Copper Pearl.
My 41 is packed and ready for its venture across the sea to Germany.
Now my focus will be fully on the 50 and dreaming of doing Viva next year.
Last couple pix of the girls together.
