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

  1. Here's one I found in a garage. It's sitting but not rotting. 20170414_150843.jpg

  2. I've been posting pictures of vintage tin as I find them. I have always enjoyed the hunt. I have lots of older photo's that I could post. Would they fit here? As most of the cars are probably long gone. 20170509_220811.jpg

    Go to Garage Journal. com then go to garage gallery and "Restored 1930s auto shop" it usually is on the first few pages of the garage gallery it is a really good sized thread.

  6. It's actually that fantastic thread about the 1930s auto shop that brought me first to the Garage Journal and from there to the HAMB.
    But I have stopped reading that thread - normally I am not an envious person but I was rebuilding my house at that time and struggling a lot, so watching that guy with his endless financial resources buying this and that, building halls for his cars and houses, in between some new cars, was just too much for me.

  7. It's here in the Shenandoah valley. Parts or the car are for sale. Send me a pm and I will give you the owners cell number. While I'm posting. Here's another page from one of the vintage tin album's. Ron... 20170512_062339.jpg

    Cool old Tractor, maybe a vintage John Deere in Hillsborough River State Park in Florida.

  11. A vision of perfection

    This is a huge problem where I live... frkn nosy A-holes who think they have a right to tell people what to do with their lives and property:mad: man if I were you I would 've called a towtruck and removed their stupid firetruck just to make a point!;)


    After working my way through this thread I've come to some realizations. At first I was angry and depressed about cars rotting into the ground and salvagable cars getting crushed etc. but after 420 pgs I can say without guilt "I don't want to save them all" I really don't want any '46 to '54 fattys or '58 to '61 land yachts period, even the chubby late '30 I only like coupes/verts, and I'd only save a fordor if it was mid '30's or earlier. Yeah they're all neat and if one drifted into my life at a super low buy in I'd save it but if it's rotting in a field in South Carolina I couldn't give a shit..... This here post illustrates the good that can come of a thread like this in the modern interweb world these two guys got together and saved a cool coupe thanks to the HAMB

    Something unique for the IH guys.

  14. I'm trying to figure what might be unique about 61 or 62 C series other than you don't see them on the roads anymore.

  16. This has been a good thread. As I've looked through some of the pages, it's good to see some young guys showing interest in old cars, even to the point they're finding them, loading 'em up and setting up projects. Keep up the great work, you young guys. Here in central Indiana, our town has a really good car event in September commemorating James Dean. Most of the cars coming into town are driven by folks out of my age group, some young fellows, but not many. A bit depressing at times, but we still need to keep the excitement about old cars.

    These particular trucks are unusual as they are a c900, from what I've read they are on a scout chassis with a shorter bed than a short bed. Not very popular and only made for a couple years?

  18. Jermo, looks like that planter was a '30 Chevrolet...
  19. I don't think any of it was a Chevy, at least not the body. It has a 30 Ford A rad shell and engine block.
  20. That one you posted is a Canadian version and probably is unique. The US ones were produced only in 63 and 64 and were only stepsides. The all were 4 bangers.

    It's unique due to the fact that it still has it's hub caps ....Well at least two anyways..Few years back there was a little short wide one like that in my area all stock plain Jane looking except the duel pipes out the back and the 500 cubes of Cadillac under the hood...Guy would drive around with a bale of hay in the bed like he was just returning from the feed store but you get next to him at the stop light ....Ya that's no farm truck.....

    Hopefully not sitting or rotting for much longer! The neighbors are getting their property cleared out. There's a few they're keeping to build themselves, but there's more to come.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]If anyone out there is interested, the cars are a little north of Salt Lake City.
