Hot Rods New project for my lady

  1. Boy,,, that statement is a double edge sword
    It's true origin of meaning is that , being said to the woman - it is important to be responsible for your own happiness as if not your entire household will be in strife because of you !!! That strife will forever lead to a never ending chain of dread in your house.

    Some women think its a license to be a tyrant and rule like a dictator with the consequences of your insubordination being living with her unhappiness - this is her entitlement and duty to make everyone unhappy until she is made happy.
    wrong!

    Y'all don't know this one, she's got just enough attitude to keep me online and acting right haha. Took 25 years to find one and I'm keeping her. Working on this truck for her will surely get me out of trouble from time to time. It ought to at least let me get away with leaving some of my shit around the house haha

    Great looking truck! I had a first series '55 back in the early 1970's wouldn't mind having another today. Bob

    Well so far today....
    -fresh fuel filter
    -coolant
    -valve cover gasket
    -bad soft brake line replaced
    -about to change the oil
    -found a leaky exhaust manifold gasket, so hopefully after that, it'll be running smooth and less smokey

    And I haven't had to done one thing around the house today haha!! And I got a gnarly breakfast. So far things are going spectacular

    Black with red wheels is a good look. Far better then pink or a pastel color. Feel fortunate after all it is "hers".

    Black with red wheels is overdone and usually not done well. This truck will be gloss turquoise, the original chevy color. It's actually what the tuck was originally. The top will be a gloss white. Color matched wheels, trim rings, spider caps and wide whites. Chevy turquoise is a timeless color. Flat black and red wheels, to me is a fad. It's a cool look but it won't stand the test of time

  9. Just FWIW, I believe that '53 was the first year for automatic availability on those. They are RARE. As in Hen's teeth with diamond stud rare.

    Before modifying it, I'd be tempted to offer it up. Might get enough cash to buy AND do another.

    See this is interesting, the title we have says 53. But the grille is obviously 54 (I know, interchangeable with 53). I was told by another hamber that its an early 55 and that 55 was the year for the auto.

    I cannot flip the truck as it was part the deal I made. I'm still interested to know actual rarity and value

    She's going to help and I'll teach her as much as I can but I wanted to do it for her. It's sort of an early birthday gift.

    Sounds like good plan for color, I was referring to gloss black, it's timeless. Good luck on your quest for Pistons & Paint.

    Most definitely a woman. I wish I could post the pictures her sister took of her when they stole my 31 when I was out of town for work. Lets just say they were good enough that I was not mad at all about the theft lol.
