This is what the GNRS should be all about.
^^^Couldn't agree more on that. Stop being so humble Kent ^^
Fabulous work on the roadster by the way! I'm looking forward on seeing it on the roads this summer.
Very Nice Car
Looks so nice. Looks ready to tow to the lakes.
Sure looks great...
I have seen the car all weekend long here at the elmia car show . Its just a perfect roadster and you really nailed it with the brown/black color together with the yellow/white lettering. Just couldn't be better .
Thanks everyone. I had quite a job to polish that paint... It was very misty.
Thank you. Glad you liked it live.
Here it's just loaded on the trailer and ready to be taken to the show.
After some hours of polishing the paint I finally got the car in the Bonneville display. Genuine salt on the floor.
I also changed the 1946 plate to a 1947. That looked better!
I did open the hood one day. It ruins the lines, but a hopped up flathead is a nice sight too...
My friend John D'Agostino was there with his Sophia and he was kind to let me sit in and check her out.
On our way home we had to do a couple of oil fill stops with Mikes -32 roadster. Built in a pre war style with a 1934-36 engine. Almost a 4 hour drive from his garage. The weather was superb this Easter weekend in Sweden.
And hey! I even won a top 20 prize!
Very well deserved mate, congratulations.
Grinners are winners congrats, you have worked for it and earned it, now enjoy it.
You deserve it! great looking car and great job done, Congrats!
Congrats! your hard work and cool skills have been recognised at least......your car deserved it.
Well done indeed
Thank you, friends!
I have been taken a few days off the garage to get back to life, but now it's time to finish the car for the street. Will start tomorrow.
But first, I have a question.
This picture is from a stack of pics I got from Cuznbrucie. It's a Morton pic, but I don't know what date of the pic or anything about that shop "Hi-Speed Auto Parts". Does anyone here have any info? I liked the name and took it on my new roadster, but any info would be fun.
