  3. I saw these on the front lawn of a house. Notice the flames on the Desoto. The Pontiac wagon is pretty cool. Sorry, I took the photos from the road. So they're not the greatest. RON.... 20190318_095944.jpeg 20190322_181500.jpeg

  5. Don't try to bang out the dents. It looks like it's painted with porcelain paint and they are not easy to restore.

    I keep meaning to go back and get it. The hill all that stuff on is truly unholy. I started up the hill with it last year.

  8. My Pegasus was rolled up in a ball and laying in an orchard when I got it. I did do some "straightening" and found a spot for it on my shop wall.... Picture 10039.jpg

    Not trying to be a dink, just thought it was funny. Keeping up property is a big never ending job.

    I’m positive it’s still there. It’s a few miles from the house. I’ll go back for it this weekend if the weather isn’t too bad. Have to damn near pack that thing up a cliff.

    Take lots of rope and younger guys with muscles. There's always younger guys around trying to impress someone with how much stronger they are than the old guys. Go ahead, be impressed. Then thank them nicely and buy them a beer.;)
     
  17. I know. I laughed, too. My next project is to clean out the garage around my "sitting and rotting" 1931 DB coupe so it will quit sitting and rotting.... post-37352-143137996175.jpg

    Looks to me like you've managed to stop the rotting, just need to work on the sitting part. I think that's a pretty common problem.

    I recognize that car. Out on RT 55 in Strasbourg, VA? I take it you’ve seen the Model A pickup on down the road in the shed? Travel that road all the time when I go to Fredericksburg.

    We all know how that played out...

    -guy driving down the road. Sees someone elses failed project they pushed to the curb.
    -guy says to himself "what a pile"
    - goes about a quarter mile, does a U turn, and goes back
    - buys it for chump change, drags it home, stuff it in a barn for "some day im gonna restore it" haha doesn't even bother to clean the glass...

    Hey, its plausible.

  26. Yes, that's the same car. Here's a picture of the model A pickup. At the time, I didn't see anyone around to ask about it. But I've been told since, that it can't be bought. :) 20190312_074949.jpeg 20190312_074603.jpeg
