Broke

Darn it...  Had to order a new handle for my go-to hammer.  I feel weird not being able use it.

Progress tease...

Body off for final fit and finish work, then body and paint work!  Getting close now!  Also a HUGE thanks to my buddy Jeremy for helping me out while he was in town for GNRS.  He knocked out the rest of rear trim pieces and got me closer to being back on schedule!  Thanks brother!

Edsel Ford '32 Speedster Restoration

One of the most beautiful speedsters ever built, in my opinion, has been restored.  It was believed to have been found in a barn, according to Hemmings and has been restored by Barillaro.  Have a look at their website and check out the progress.  AMAZING!

Guess What Day it is....


Ford P68

For the guy that commented about the P68...

Pretty insane cars!  Never been a huge fan over the over-stated rear aerodynamics, but I realize there was a purpose for it.

It has arrived and I'm smiling almost as much as the axle is!  It MAY have been on the Frank Mack T Roadster at one point... Trying to find out.
