  9. Did you buy the T frame in the background at Fitchberg from my dad a few years ago?

    Stogy, all the tags are painted on. I believe the tank is Korea or Vietnam era . A few painted on tags and markings . I plan to tape them off when I paint it. Appreciate you following along as always.

  18. The guy who bought it said he was building a belly tanker.

    I always wondered where the design came from...

    Thanks for the info and its cool your preserving the part markings as it certainly could lead to exact ID (most part marks have a date) and looks kinda neat too. Hey talking history, when around stuff like the Hotrod, old tools, vintage buildings I do think about those that have interacted with these objects and in the case of your tank where did it see action or was it on a trainer, who piloted it...stuff like that. Did The Rosie work on it?.

    Perhaps the Ole Sport Coupe I have did some Roundy, Round Jalopy Racing in the past and like every car we have as a Hotrod/Custom, at one time it was sitting on the showroom floor and someone purchased it as their New Automobile. I guess its a form of reminiscing about the past and respecting where its been. One thing for sure is this stuff many times outlasts us...and keeps other generations wondering. The Big Picture so to speak...

    Glad your having fun with it all...KoolKat and yes your certainly capable of amazing things and don't disappoint.

    Yes sir. Once the frame has all its components in place I will fully weld and fish plate it. No sense doing that yet. I have no idea how it will go together hahaha.
