Convertible Dreaming

Today’s Mood is definitely dreaming about a Black chopped 40 convertible that my friend Dave drove to lunch. The other Dave and I rode in his 3 window and followed him for our cruise through Grimes Canyon hills to ARP for a great lunch. Our normal cruise route takes us through the mountains and farm lands of our area. The trip is about 40 minutes of winding roads and you need good brakes. Pepe had his brakes fixed yesterday but this morning check found new brake fluid on the ground so I didn’t get to drive him today.

Following the heavy chopped convertible (4″) really got our hearts beating and watching the solid axle vert take the corners with ease. Dave has owned the car since 1975 and redone it a couple of times during that period. This iteration is my favorite as the first was a purple version with skirts and frenched Studebaker tail lights. I have owned two convertibles and loved them both and today I wish I had one of them back. Sound familiar!

Funny how we fall in love with a certain car and style one day and something else the next day. Maybe that’s just me but Dave’s Black convertible always comes to the top when it comes time to dream big. If you have a favorite dream car, if you do send me your choice and I will do a blog on the model you select. I have a huge library to choose from.

Stay Tooned!

I like this basic Deuce chassis. Not sure who built it but it’s my style.

A very clean approach to a Deuce chassis with all the right parts.

You could slide the chassis under this basic hiboy and be rolling down the road real soon.

This famous Inglese Deuce is now my buddy Dave’s.

You gotta love this 36 roadster with a subtle color and classic look.

CSR old delivery is still around and looks good. Boyd chassis and Paul Beck rear door.

Tom sold his 34 roadster and moved on to a 39 with roll up windows.

The Black 40 group was at lunch today! I am hot for a convertible today.

I did locate this project 40 in Seattle but it quickly sold. These kind of projects take another 50K to finish if you can find a cheap painter.

My first one looked like this black plate and lots of patina.

A perfect color for this stunning 39 Woodie.

Long time Henry had his Deuce at the WI 100 along with Dale and Greg leading the way. I believe Gibbon made these tops back in the 70-80’s.

This 46 looks really nice and is for sale on eBay.

The all time favorite of mine is Rodger’s 33/4 roadster with flatty and perfect top.

Pastel colors seem to be growing in popularity on these large body sedans. Almost a light shade of CMG.

I added the Champ, 40 axle tubes, Buck drums and bacon plates and Ray added the tires. I like the Champ in the 33/4.

Her is another style that I like also. Let’s go racing!!
