  1. This is an update on my post way back then !! :)

    I am now 67 years young.:rolleyes:
    I still have the Center door.:D

    I no longer have the 37 Coupe.:(
    I have built my son a 29 Model"A" Tudor, which also was sold last year (Kids etc):(:eek:
    I have built and sold a 27 Model "T" Chopped Coupe, :(:(

    which was sold last year to a guy who bought his first ever Hot Rod at the age of 74 years !!!:cool:

    I have bult a 41 COE truck which I am driving around now and REALLY like it.:D
    So to cap it all I still have the 23 Center Door and the 41 COE truck....;):D:D


    Oh and a beard for the first time.:p:D

    I was born into the restoration side of the Hobby and have always had many of the cars. 1910 Overland, 1914 Buick, 1922 Buick, 1923 Model T Depot Hack, 1928 Model A Roadster, 1929 Model A special coupe, 1930 Chevy sedan. I also have a couple of other post 1948 cars. I am only 43. I am fortunate enough to have inherited Gramps and Dad's collection. I just finished my coupe traditional rod style and have truly earned my "Binger" as this is the first project I did with out dad. Coupe beginning.jpg Trim installed.jpg Almost complete.jpg

    image.jpeg image.jpeg 59 years old and own a 1928 Ford "AR" one ton flatbed and a 1947 Ford Super Deluxe.

    I started scraping gunk off the "AR"'s frame in 1974 after my Father bought it, it was built up to a rolling frame/ drivetrain before I moved to Alaska in 1979 and he finished it in 1984.

    The 47 was purchased in 1989 and I helped Dad drop the engine and transmission in around 1991.

    Dad passed away in 2013 and I own both cars now, they will be handed down to my kids someday.

    I learned mechanical work on the "AR" which led to a career in automotive and diesel mechanics, I retired as a disabled civilian heavy equipment mechanic for the US Army at Fort Lewis Washington in 2010.

    I love old cars.
