Every time I look at this thread I want to get out into the garage.
that’s great man I hope you and your family are doing well John, miss ya pal!
Same to you, we're doing great.
Hopefully we can meet up again sometime. Last time was at Bonneville when you were with the Rolling Bones guys.
Starting to collect parts to revamp ol 169, I had to move her from one storage spot to another for the last time. This buggy deserves to be driven so I’m gonna make a “few minor changes” this winter...
working on this set of Belond-ish stainless headers for Rich’s y block, almost done, just gotta add an extension to the down tubes and a set of outlet flanges.
And I’ve been ironing out the tail section to Dave’s manning chassis special, still quite a bit to go but it’s starting to take shape, mocking up a spare tire faring in cardboard...
I really like that track nose. Rest of the car kind of remind me of an Allard. Be interesting to see some cycle fenders and partial rear fenders on it.
It’s got some allard influence, a pinch of 40s Indy car, some early ford hot rod, a little mg, and a bunch of home built sports car. I’m getting pretty excited to drive it!
@louisb your Jimmy looks jealous of the attention. Btw got a box from chad today and your shifter is here.
Thanks for posting all these great build pics Andy! It's awesome to see what you've been up to. Really enjoy seeing the progress on your work. Hope you guys are doing well and staying healthy!
Thanks Steve you too bud, give my best to Maggie and your folks too
I'm really diggn' ol169, looking forward to more about her.
Working out a plan now, going to go in a totally different direction with it haha, some folks will probably hate it but that’s life I guess.
Taking it in a showcar direction ala Barris on the Chrisman coupe? Can't do gull wing doors on a roadster, but maybe some Lambo doors? Some cool pontoon fenders, mold everything together, candy paint. Sounds cool!
Andy are you dropping those axles.
I have some friends that are looking for someone to drop some twin I beams

yes we are but right now we’re only doing 28-48 wishbone type, we are planning to build a new jig to do twin I beams (my buddy who works with me and I both have multiple econolines) but haven’t found the time to do it yet.
not quite that far Jeff haha, I’m thinking ditch the belly pan/tonneau/hood, add a 32 windshield, polish and chrome everything in the engine bay and the entire front suspension, 6 individual ripple pipes, a real grille insert, 57 ford coral/black paint scheme, black n white interior, narrow slicks... just daydreaming and parts collecting for now tho
I'm on a site for f100s and they all are looking for someone.
PM me if you want some info when you are ready. Jim

Facebook is nice, but looking at what you make is the reason i prefer the HAMB.
Great work, i love it
YES! Thank you, older people aren't into Facebook or cellphone crap. Bob
Looking good, Andy!
a few more pieces of the 36 Carson top frame found their homes, got some more laterals to install and then a bunch of woodwork. And pat’s 3w chop started...
Nice roof profile on the 36 roof.
Love your random photo dumps! Glad you’re sharing them.
nice ! Keep them coming....
Set the very black body on Sergio’s chassis! Hot dawg!! my buddy Matt Wagner showing off his amazing body and paint work.
Checking window profiles and fine tuning the roof shape on pats 33 3w. We got the rear roof tacked in place and inner structure on the a pillars finished. I completely remove the pillar skins in the chop area, this allows total rebuild a full penetration welding on the inner structure. The a pillars skins had some pretty serious rot around the factory weld and under the factory leaded areas, we will have to make the upper sections of outer skin.
The reflections in that body are straight.
