    This one spoke to me but I didn't have the money for it. Maybe these pictures will give you some inspiration. Good luck with it and most of all have fun doing it. 70704060_700537057092841_8969332813014761472_n.jpg 70931179_700535567092990_1029032326845169664_n.jpg

    Lotsa nice saves!

    Unfortunately, this has been a year of cleaning out for me. If I don't have a specific plan for that item, it's going to go. I'm overloaded on vehicles too, nothing desirable however, but reliable daily driver o/t stuff. That will be helped when a couple of my kids move out soon.

  9. Hopefully the last for me, but we still have one more weekend in 2019....

    This truck was a one owner truck until 4 years ago, when the guy I got it from purchased it. He tore it completely apart down to a bare frame and then lost interest. I spent 4 hours Saturday getting it together enough to get on my trailer and then a couple hours loosely mocking it together yesterday. Time waster

    After wanting one since I was a little kid, this '49 Ford. I had been watching it sit for years, as a local guy tried to flip it for $3500. When he gave up, and listed it for $500, I was there within a couple hours with the cash. I sold a '63 Corvair Coupe to keep my hoard at 3 cars. KIMG0049.jpeg

  16. I bought this ole 48 coupe for no other reason than its the same age as me and rock solid. It was stored away for many years. Had to rebuild the fuel, brake and electrical systems to get it roadworthy. I gotta stop this buying and get rid of stuff!:(

    I sold a off topic car and motorcycle and bought this 1936 ford 2 dr sedan humpback

  20. Last New Years Day I found a nice 55 Chevy Del Ray and had to have it . It is a step forward for me getting something turn key and finished . Not Hamb friendly but I latched onto a 1 owner 97 BMW 740i . I never owned a luxury sedan and it was priced right . It serves well as a good cruiser road car. I sold a 70 c20 pickup and a 55 210 , both went to good car guys.
  21. I picked up a 38 Chevy in the fall[​IMG]

  22. I bought this 50 Plymouth in Aug not too long after selling my 41 Chevy. I believe I saved it from possible neglect.
