Thanks Don. That picture is from Jalopyrama 5. Did you take it?
Here’s a couple shots from a trip my son and I took last summer. The ConocoPhillips station in Shamrock Texas.
It is good he passed it along to you while he was able to make the decision on who would buy the car.It looks like it will be fun car for you to enjoy working on and driving. Thanks for sharing the info.
....................Can't take credit for the picture, Andy. Just found it somewhere in coverage from Jalopyrama 5. Might have been Lyle or Mike before they started watermarking their photos.
Beautiful shots OL 55!
A few photos from a work related trip yesterday, running from Springfield, MO to Clarksville, AR.
More beauties, for the bump

Beautiful 38 degree day in Hernando !! Stopped at Velvet Cream ( aka The Dip to locals) , The oldest restaurant in Desoto Co Ms since 1949. Today marks the 198 day I have driven Lil Red this year , should easily reach my goal of 200 days for the year. Haven't really been any where special just daily use , errands, cruise ins , couple of shows etc . Later Bill
Looking Good Bill!
I don't keep track but I also drive mine weather permitting everyday.
Tucked in for the winter today, had a great run this year, 12 states and over 10,000 miles of smiles.
Tucked in for Winter???????
Now is the best time to drive, no worry about overheating,,,
For us in terrible SoCal
This makes me sad. Winter can be a bitch up north I know. We can still break outa the garage down here in the South on occasion but there isn't much happening.
Wanted to put this on the delivery panel truck thread but it seems to be on lock down so I guess this is a good place for it.
I've driven my '40 113 days this year, including today (the Nomad 115 days)
the pictures below are my daughter in 1985 by the '34 and her daughter a couple of weeks ago sitting on my '40
I got the fender replaced and painted in time for the Christmas Parade.
More beauties, credit to owners and photographers
A few more
Even as a child, I noticed and liked the 1939 and 1940 Ford Coupes. In addition to the great overall persona of the car, a couple things in particular struck my fancy... the reverse curve where the roof transitions into the deck lid... As opposed to a crease... the long and bulbous decklid itself and the massive looking, thick, deeply grooved rubber covered running boards. Much thicker... top to bottom... than any other cars I can think of. And most other rubber running board covers seem to have finer grooves.

This is a lovely bumper. What is it off of? Magnificent rag top as well!
40 Ford bumper with a 49 Chevy license surround. And 41 Studebaker taillights!
IMHO chopping the top on a 40 Convertible is money and time well spent,
A Clean Little Coupe..
Thanks i.rant for kind words on my 40
One of the best designed cars ever ! Is there such a thing as a "Nationals For 40 FORDS " ?
Fortys Limited puts on Forty Ford day in La Palma Ca the week after the LA Roadster show. in June. If you like forty Fords its a great show
Boy Duncan you sure have made a looker out of the 40.
