Art & Inspiration Sitting and Rotting.............picture thread

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Royalshifter, Jan 31, 2009.

  1. If the '36 Ford is going to be a permanent part of the fence, I'd like to have the front bumper and bumper arms off of it, always thought a '36 bumper with the dip in the middle would go well with the grille on my '38 Ford pickup. Also would like to have the stainless headlight rims for spares. I have '36 car lenses and rings on my truck. '38-'39 truck headlight buckets are the same as '35 car, and '36 car uses the same bucket with a shorter mounting stud.
     
  2. I wish I had the time and money, to make a cool Kustom with this. Ron... 001.jpg 002.jpg 003.jpg

  5. peanut, I used to think the same thing. Then I realized it's a good thing that a lot of these cars do still exist. They weren't crushed, or destroyed. So it is our job to help save them. We can't build them all, but we can help find them good homes. This thread helps with that. I hate seeing the rusting too, but they can be saved, It just takes time and money. I have helped to save a lot of them. And I feel good about that. Does anyone need a good project just let me know. Ron...

  10. That 20 Caddy would make a bitchin Hotrod. Run it highboy style, sitting low, with a chopped windshield and a flathead Caddy motor.

    I wish the owner would sell the model A coupe, I would be interested. The 1940 Chevy looks a little better than mine ;):eek:

    Yes, and the Galaxie 500 convertable is next to the Chevy, and a Charger Convert next to it. There is a pretty rotted Roadrunner just outside the barn. The owner did try to put them under cover.

    I was given quotes for some of them, but they seem to be on and off the market depending on how he feels. He wants all the money when quotes. If interested I can inquire. He just sold a 39 Lincoln Zephyr that I didn't think he would part with.
     
  21. "Charger Convert"? Never saw one of those except at a custom car show. Must have been a Coronet.

  23. I love the Desoto and station wagon. Bruce.

  27. Looks like it's slowly turning into soil. Citrus would grow great in that kind of soil.

    I couldn't find anything "on topic" rotting in the hood but I found one "off topic" that the owner says is not for sale and that he will restore it. That was 10 years ago when I last asked him. If you know the 'couve, you know this car, it has been sitting there shamefully rotting for a couple of decades now. RIP Mach (rust into pieces)
