    It may not qualify as a slow project yet but where I am starting from with just a frame and nothing else I can read the writing on the wall.
    31 roadster.

    Im working on a 29 Tudor currently. It'll have a rusty old 59A motor, '39 trans, '46 banjo rear, '46 juice brakes, and '35 wheels.
    I just recently set the body on the chassis. Video here....

    I've owned the 62 Biscayne for twelve years and the T Coupe for nine. O.T. Race Car takes up most of my time and all of my money. I recently retired and figured things would change but now I'm remodeling my house to sell it and move. When I move, I want to build the garage of my dreams and who knows how long that will take. So... who knows when they'll get done. I've decided to just throw an engine and a front end on the 62 this winter and get it running. I plan to have a lift at my new place so I can do a body off on it at that time. I do enjoy just owning them but running cars would be more fun. IMG_1683.jpg IMG_0826.jpg

    3 and 1/2 years. Just dropped if off to have the interior completed and still need to wet sand and buff the hood. Nice to see the end in site. :) 20201001_135627.jpg

    I clearly remember starting to build my frame at my friend's garage because he had a metal cutting band saw that I needed to use. That same weekend, his daughter was getting married and everybody in the house was busy with the reception. My thought was that true friends don't invite you to their kid's wedding. Now I hope to finish this thing before her kids graduate university!

    In the year since I posted, my coupe is now a roller and has most of the major fabrication complete.

    Feels good.

    Go on then, i'll play. I bought my first 40 for my 40th Birthday. Always wanted one, so sold a relly nice OT car and bought a 40 sedan of ebay....big mistake, kept it about a year, then sold it and bought another one that was already in the UK, so I could have a look at it before I spent my cash.
    So, its 15 years later, still building it. It kind of changed direction, I always wanted to hot rod it, but thought it would be 'quicker' to semi custom it, basically a stock car lowered alot with skirts and whitewalls. It was taking a lot longer than i wanted, so decided to send it out to a place to get it just about driving. But then i thought about it, and decided that if im giving someone that much money, I may as well get the car I want, so all the drive train got taken out, new engine, trans and rear suspension, a great leap forwards, but I basically got a non driver back for the money I had, so its back to an hour here and there. I've just changed my working days (self employed) to be Tuesday to Saturday, giving me a firm one day a week (Monday) of car time. The build is in my 'signature' at the bottom, if you have the time in between your busy car building schedule,,,,
