    We decided two weeks ago to take my 38 plymouth truck to Primer.. I had blown the flathead 6 up on the way to paso and let it sit since then. The shop has been too busy to work on my stuff. In the last 2 weeks we swapped in a 318 poly/ 727 combo, new rear end, swing pedal setup, corvair box and exhaust system, new driveline, custom column mod, etc.... We finished it at 4pm on Friday. I drove it two the house and loaded 400 lbs worth of wheels and axles for my booth. The truck drove down and back with no issues at all... I didn't really get any pics but these on the way home of my truck and a customers project car in front of the old train car cafe near Buelton. We had a good time and talked to lots of HAMBers...

    Bob, I didn't get to sign the banner... my booth was swarmed non-stop.. I barely got to leave to use the restroom.. Lot's of HAMB guys came by the booth though. It's a two edge sword...Too busy to go look at cars.. or easy to look at cars but not making any money.. Jason.

    Nope.... we built that car in two stages.... we built the complete rolling chassis in a week, then the owner did his own brake lines and fuel lines and painted the frame. then we assembled the car, wired it, fitted a windshield, motor,trans,floor etc in 2 weeks.... we only worked on that car about 3 weeks total.. It isn't done yet but he drives it daily... I will post pics of the body you blasted later today.. I got it back from paint last week.. Jason
