amen to that.!
thuoght i'd post another pic of mine (i never get tired of looking at it)got some more work done.
Soooooo many coupe's!!!!. Go the fordors, especially those in Australia!!
What trim is on this car? I was going to post the pic, but it previewed in a huge size, didnt want to muck up the thread. But I cant find out what it is. Any help?
Looks like a Buick trim to me
Thanks! Google images looks like its 52 Buick roadmaster. I love the lines of that trim and the owner of that car hadnt logged in for 3 years.
Here's a couple of my favorites. One that my f-i-l did when he was a teenager working at Barris' shop and one that he did for a guy a number of years ago.
I want to do one when I'm ready for low and slow and get rid of the H2O hot rods.
Damn so many awesome shoeboxes..I miss my 50 choptop! Anyone wanna trade for a 59 f100?
Junior Conway, huh? I hope he's going to help you with yours!
I would definitely appreciate any advice he'd give me. I've learned a lot from him. There's a lot of knowledge in that shop!
'49 tudor. Needs more than it doesn't but slowly it'll get there.
I like both subjects in this picture!
Thought y'all might like this shoebox ID article.
Here are a few updated pic's.
That's quite a good guide, and very nearly complete. He missed the difference in depth for all the '49 and '50 grille parts (looks dumb if you mix them). I was unaware of the all-plastic crests on early '50s.
heres mine so far
Finally getting mine to a place where I feel like I can drive and have fun with it while I work on it.
Oh yeah...forgot to ad my most recent accomplishment, the Kaiser Bumper Exhasust thing.
That was a long row to hoe. Beautiful work.
I think updated pic is in order...
And blue one is for sale...

Working on her again this time I am chopping the top and going to change colors again. I think I will two tone the rascal this time but not sure of the colors. I hope this pic post right.
Jalopy fest morning ...

A 49 Tudor I built in 96 and a 51 I have not seen yet, its on its way to Sweden now. Also have a 49 convertible and two more shoeboxes-
this thread truly illustrates where the imagination and work can take you. lots of very tasty 'boxes. the one in my avatar was my first--put it together under a tree from two junkers and a few readily available (and cheap) n.o.s. parts from joblot automotive back in '75. lots of kids back then called me "jed clampett" when they'd see me driving around. its end came when an old biddy rear-ended me at a stoplight. her first remark to me was, "thank god it was an old car!"
