    Man... I love that little truck!
     
  5. El Jefe's Tom Orren-built'29 Ford Roadster. Built in the 40's. One of the first hot rods in Central Texas. Raced and unbeaten until 1955. Beat in '55 and put away never to be seen again until Orren passed away in '98.

    Heres what it looked like in that barn

    here's mine, it's really a pasture car. I can't think of any better way to test out a frame.

    My one and only barn find is a 55 Chevy 6cyl with 52,000 miles and came with title.
    I paid 450.00 for it and I just started work on turning it into a 2 door.

    Good question! Timing I guess. Right place at the right time generally.

    1934 three window that came out of a barn in 2012, now gone to a new owner. Dennis bought the coupe in 1974, and stored it for almost four decades. Here he is shown cleaning the coupe off before we load it on the trailer. IMG_0156.JPG

    Also got these two out of the barn. Didn't get pics of them being pulled out though. Only after I got them home and cleaned up. Coon shit was everywhere.

    Here are pics of the 57's cleaned up. I still have to go back and get all the parts that go with the cars. He has pretty much everything to complete each car.
