    This is what the GNRS should be all about.

    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 .
    Congrats !!!

    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... :D

    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. :)

    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.
