88 year old running boards.
Feel free to add your photo's. HRP
That is not store bought... Love that pic Danny...
Very artistic, the B+W really make the shot.
Credit where credit is due, this photo was taken by Tom Hassel (seadog) several years ago. HRP
I thought you had a pic of yourself to show.
That might make the internet crash, I'm just the average old fart. HRP
Would like to see the fake patina guys duplicate this finish.
80 year old originals on my 40
Mark, Man that running board looks amazing and doesn't show it's age one bit, it goes without saying someone took good care of your 40 over the years HRP
yeah, I'll bet it never spent a night outdoors. I was lucky to find it with 40,000 actual miles
Only 40,000 miles?
That's like 2,000 miles a year, Holy Cow! HRP
Has something like 48,000 on it now. was 40K when I bought it back in 07
Apparently Scotty B's isn't too far away...........
Been sitting a long,long time. HRP
1942 tax stamp
The original sales invoice for Taboo, was shocked to see it in a box of stuff given to us when we bought the car back. Still looks like it was just typed out yesterday.
Well, it use to be. HRP
Danny,I think about how time has gone by when I look at my tub, it really hasn't aged but I have.
A little Armor All and they'll be good as new
They have a good soaking with a product like armor all, that's why they look this good. HRP
LOL. I guess the next logical step would be roofing tar...
I'm old enough to remember seeing Model A's with the top insert gobbled up with roofing tar, man what a mess. HRP
Oh yeah. The first Model A coupe body I bought back in the 70's had part of a old BF Goodrich sign "glued" to the roof opening with an ungodly amount of roofing tar.
Danny, is drakes store still a used as a landmark when giving directions out your way, when i first moved south his place was the only place that had gas on that country road?
John, George Drake was a well know man out that way, many times I have heard, " go out Centerville Road until you get to Drakes Store and turn right or left"
George died a long time ago but they still use the old building as a point of reference, the sell Christmas Trees there every year.
I found this photo that was taken in the late 60's several years ago, no telling how many gallons of gas George pumped. HRP
Survivor built in the early 60’s outta California. Took these pics at Deuce days last year.
