    This thread is gonna save me some time and effort. For the last 17 years, whenever my Nomad fades to a nice chalky dull red, I get out the buffer and make it shiny again. Now I'm just gonna have a cold beer instead!

    This is the best thread I've seen in a while. Don't know why but I have always enjoyed looking at the cars and trucks with the weathered paint etc.. I think maybe its because I can identify with them so much easier than I can with the others. I like to drive and when I see cars and trucks like these I know there are others out there like me!!!

    I'm a sucker for any pre goat Pontiacs. You gotta be really sick and into punishment to have a love like mine.... but thats a different thread.

    Thanks Joe. I've had several pre 49 cars including a 38 Poncho 2 door but I've got to say out of all of them this is the one I love the most...can't wait to get back on the road with it.

    Here is my personal POS to keep the thread going......and no, its not done (the thread, and the car, it will get paint soon).


    Im always late on posting, work gets in the way I guess.

    I always get asked, "what color is it?". I guess its; white, blue, rust, and grey.

    Very cool thread, here's my 30 roadster. If this was a new reproduction body I wouldn't want it to look like this. But there's something about a 78 year old finish that's kind of hard to mess with. My car was originally Washington blue with yellow pinstriping. There's still a little bit left on the doors and above the decklid. Some old timer layed down those stripes almost eighty years ago. Who am I to strip that off? The plan is to drive it how it looks till I can afford a deuce frame and rebuild my flathead and make it pretty again. But who knows, I might leave it like this forever.
