    Thanks a lot. It was almost four years ago this car looked like this and probably hadn't moved under it's own power for 50 years.

    Also I just noticed that half of my images they don't show up maybe because I used the now defunct IG function to upload them. Guess I'll need to go back and try to fix that.

    Congrats John, feels good doesn't it?
    Want to travel to the "gathering" together? We will probably be passing by your watch city anyway. . .

    The car had a successful 100 mile outing to the Gathering of the Faithful last weekend. Thanks @wheeldog57 for the picture, I was too amped up to even take one.

    I told my son that we’d be getting ice cream in a hot rod this year and while I was a little late I caught an unseasonably warm day and kept my promise.

    Thanks @F&J I asked my wife for framed prints of this for Christmas, it was definitely a priceless moment. My son has seen me working on a lot of old cars and motorcycles but they usually get sold before we get a chance to have very much fun in them. I promised myself the 32 would stick around long enough to infect him with the gear head bug but who knows how many years or thousands of miles that might take!

    The front seats that were in the car were donors that were only ever going to get used for the frame and seat tracks, I sent them to my buddy who does upholstery and they're done. I'll be installing soonish. With 6 inches of snow on the ground I am currently in no hurry.
