    He has kept his 32 3 window for quite a while but this might be one he will just freshen up and move it along. Certainly a color from the late 60s - 70s..

    Paul built my 32 pick up. He is a stand up guy, does nice work and his shop is like a time capsule!

    While I'm waiting for Paul to finish up a new batch of cars this winter and there is nothing much happening carwise for me due to this never ending snow... I've been playing in photoshop with his old cars transporting them back to the good old days. Obviously I have way too much time on my hands...

    Ummm, nice contours on that model, I like the shape as it tapers back! ;)


    Norm's output over the years is phenominal! What neat cars!

    I just called Paul as I had to speak to him about the black and red ford/deusenberg replica he built as I am it's present owner. He was super nice and told me I could call him anytime.

    What a great guy an a super talent! I know if I am ever in NH I will be looking him up.
