  13. This one was pretty neat. It's a channelled 36 roadster with 40 fenders. The rears are two 40 fenders per side leaded together. I talked with the owner, his dad built it in 1948. A survivor.

    It's half a 40 so I thought it'd be ok posting.

    March 10, 2016 the coupe leaves storage to go get inspected for the year. Earliest ever! Talked to RonnieRoadster in CT and he said he had the deuce roadster out and commented it was earliest for him too. In the 50s here today, overcast with heavy rains tonight.

  20. In the 70's and 80's down here this week, but I'm still leary because March can be a bitch around these parts!
    My car is in the body shop or I would be driving the wheels off of it. So here's a picture from last summer. :)

    This is my old 40. It was sold by Tall Paul at the Turkey Rod Run in Daytona around 2004. Anyone know where it is now? Someone in the Naples area supposedly bought it. favorite.jpg
     
  26. LOL. That's a shot I took of Jerry Eckholdt's "Booger", on its debut in Springfield.

    Here's my friend Johnny Hammonds 40 at last falls "geezer gathering" in Wichita. Apparently he's had it a long time but this is the first time I've seen it. Neat car! ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1458010739.355846.jpg

    Shoot, i.rant I was so bedazzled by the beautiful black paint and killer stance I never noticed the wipers.... It would be interesting to see if they actually work in that configuration.

    I'll ask him about the wipers next time I see him. I usually see him at the Chill motorcycle show but I didn't this year. I hope he's doing ok.
