    Hi!
    I"m Bruce, a 60 year young contractor with a love for old cars...since high school. My username is 53woody. I told my wife I bought the 53 Chevy project truck as a business expense. It has been an EXPENSE! But as of yet it has not been down the road a mile, or made me a nickel.
    The truck is 90% done. I made a wooden cap to carry my tools, in the style of a woody, with light and dark stain.

    My real pride and joy is a 34 Ford 3window, that I bought as just a body and original frame. The car was a survivor of its day, as a dirt track jalopy. Most of the work was done in my garage with the help of friends.

    I look forward to seeing as many posts and pictures as possible. I hope to meet some local H.A.M.B.ers who love to drive and put some miles on!

    Pictures to come of the 34.
    :cool:

    Welcome from Florida. Not sure where in WNY you're at - I grew up in North Tonawanda but left in '70 to find the sun.

    Thanks for the reply. I'm in Dunkirk. I love the album on the '30. I had a 30' 4-door, chopped 4 inches. I see a road trip in the spring!

    Hey Bruce do you go to the Flea Market/Car show in May at the fairgrounds? I'm counting the days till this year's. I've got a '51 International and a homemade pseudo military truck cab in the works, my old man's got a 62 and 64 fleetside Chevs--we'll have to get together when it's warmer.
