    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. 46974009_10214577172207244_4466021485324009472_o.jpeg

    Happy anniversary
    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.
    Beautiful car...

    IMHO chopping the top on a 40 Convertible is money and time well spent,
    beautiful,classy 40.

    Thanks, Joe! That side and hood stainless you gave me made a world of difference! Still things to do but it's getting there! Kenny (truckncoupe) wants to know when I'm coming over for more coneys.
