    That color looks a lot like my Dad's old '32 sedan. Does it have a code something like 1331?

    I have had my 33 for many years and my wife says we will never part with it. It special to her. It will go to our daughter I guess. We lost both of our sons this year which was a shock to us. We never know what tomorrow will bring.

    Wow wow wow. How did I miss this thread? The 33 is simply stunning. I must have just crawled out from under a rock, but I had never heard of Rudy before. I recognized pictures of his work once I looked it up. What an eye opening thread!

    I am in awe of the attention to design, detail, and execution.
    Absolutely beautiful 33.

    How did I not know you were in on this? I stopped by the shop two weeks ago but the sign on the door asked politely not to disturb you, so I politely didn't. I could hear you working away though!

    Ya I've had this car in the shop since April 17th of this year. So all the updates since then have been my work. Been such a unique car to be involved in.

    Sorry you stopped by without saying hi, I have that sign just to keep the tire kickers from chatting for hours, Ha. Next time your up give me a ring.

    So the sign is there for me! Because I'm a tire kicker who chat for hours! No worries, I was a few blocks away picking up equipment and thought I'd swing in and meet you. Will call ahead next time. Keep up the killer work!
