    Maybe I can do it justice. It a crowd pleaser, that's for sure.

    You're '32 definitely has an interesting history, still kicking myself over that one...:cool:

    Thanks Delton. Help me find a picture of it in it's original Pearl so we can get it right. Gotta be some out there.... Should be easy to spot in that color with filled 1/4's :D

    Can you actually run that blue light? Seems like the Dunkin Boys would freak out about it.

    Really great car Kevin. It's so amazing that someone didn't mess it up over the years. It's in good hands now, and already made the Detroit Autorama with it. Very COOL, and good luck on finding the rest of the history.

    It's been around the country, but figured it should see Detroit for the 60th Autorama. The Dunkin boys WOULD freak out. :D

    I'm still on the hunt for a picture of it before 1975....

    Hey Wheel Guy! Good to see you on here.

    I credit my ENTIRE Hot Rodding background to growing up surrounded by COOL mentors like YOU!!!

    My first Ride in a REAL hot rod, I can remeber was your old Anglia... and what a ride it was!

    Thanks for everything!

    Shit, that's not Hi-jacking my post, that's just adding to the long list of history behind this car. Joe is cool as they come and I'm glad I know him. If I ever decide to paint the car, I want some Shaw stripes back on it.

    Here's a few pics from behind the Chickamauga Dam in Chattanooga when I drove it to work this week. The bike belongs to my friend Phil.

    How about the COP car in the background.... We thought he was gonna give us some shit, but he only wanted to check out our rides. Cool...!

    Took the roadster out to the local Sonic cruise in for the first time tonight. Usually they won't even raise an eyebrow. Seemed to be a crowd pleaser... Saw the first smiles out of these guys, EVER...!

  12. So Kevin you going to bring that to" cruise paradise 12 " I am sure we could find a place to park it.
     
  13. OK, Kevin we get it - your roadster is cool. No need to rub it in. :rolleyes::D

    Glad to hear your having fun with it.

    It was great hanging with you in Detroit. Next time come up in the summer when I can steal the keys and take that thing for a drive!

    Hey Warren, I'd love to take it over there. I can't think of a better place to drive a roadster than Hawaii. By far my favorite place on earth.

    Just glad to have it running right again.... That 12 hour trip in the rain to Detroit put it out of commission. Good news is that all (6) carbs are fresh and ready to rumble now, just gotta get the linkage worked out.

    Anybody ever run the outside (4) as primaries and the center (2) as secondaries? That's my plan.

    Maybe you should plan a trip down here Dave... We have warm weather 10 months out of the year. ;) You are welcome to the keys bro, it's just a car.
