Speaking about Dave

So dave come up to discuss a new roof skin for his car and to brag about his grill(not really, but he looks like a proud father) -he’s been looking forever for a top bar from a Cadillac grill to finish his grill off -looks great Dave! How long we’re you looking?

1939 Club Coupe -1st year of production, only 8200 produced….

Big Linc Dave lets me know about these things every so often, man I want that car…. I realize I don’t have enough projects yet but I just can’t pull the trigger on another project, but someone should buy it and let me do the work so I can scratch it off my list

Test drives

The unruly princess has been tamed, starting test drives on the hottest days to make sure she’ll hold together under extreme conditions before we give it back to the customer. I find removing all the English parts and replacing them with reliable parts that are easy to obtain makes life much easier in the long run. When this car came in from Nevada it had a solid mount 350 stuffed in it that would overheat and rattle the doors open, original drums and manual brakes (I think the steering wheel was bent up from trying to stop it) and the wiring was falling apart -then there was the whole Lucas thing as well.
We stripped the car of all the “junk” and started fresh with a rebuilt 250 Chevy 6 cyl and 400 tranny, I made a disc brake conversion for the front and used a Chevy truck rear end on the original leaf springs, and new wiring front to back. Now it’s reliable, and we can get almost any of the consumable parts at any parts place – off to paint, and a carpenter! This thing is all wood. But my first test drive is to drop my son off at school….. In style

Ryan brought over a one piece hood he wanted punched with 3″ louvers for Mother’s Day? I’d like to find or make some old time louver punches, the round top ones like we see in all the small mags…. -I get it now, if you turn the hood around the louvers make an M -I’m sure his mom will love it

New shop truck!

So I was out wheeling and dealing on the weekend for this -I really wanted another army truck like a hole in my head -but cool is cool, it’ll need some love and a diesel, but which one? I’m thinking the plate should be NWO AOK
