  7. Got mine a few years ago and still plugging away on it. Seems to me shoeboxes are the most popular build for the money these days.
    This is to date.

    I just don't get it - guy at the gas station asked if it was a '50 Studebaker?!
    This is all old school, 6v, 8BA w/OD, T&R interior, all accessories are originals time pieces, even the tires are real Firestones - not Cokers.
