    Looks great! I worked on an early '28 Touring years ago, remember taking off the door sills was a pain. Hope installing them isn't a problem for you.

    I'm not sure - I gave Ben photos of old Fords, looking for that dark green color that I wanted, he came back from the paint guy with a good match!

    The phaeton is moving under its own power! Ben just took it out for a spin and filled up the tank! Still some adjustments, but I get to drive it for the first time tomorrow!

    wow! Big day today! I got to drive the phaeton - so fucking happy, can't wait to have it all finished! Also, I'm now a member of the Kontinentals!

    Is this the body that came from Joyo? The car looks great! Ben sure knows how to stitch a hot rod together.

    Drove the phaeton home yesterday, from Johnson City! So much fun - a pleasure to drive, plenty of pep, just need to remember the sunscreen next time!

    I'm driving this thing as much as possible and having such a great time! Ben did a tremendous job putting it together, it's fast and nimble, every time I drive it I get to blow off some tech nerd in a new Porsche!

  21. It had to turn out good. It's sharing a garage with the coolest '29 Tudor on the road today!

    Update: still driving the wheels off this one, enjoying the mild fall/winter weather here in Austin! I'm supposed to give it back to Ben for final paint, but I'm having too much fun running errands and taking cute ladies to lunch!
