Tuesday’s are normally busy for me and today was no exception. Â I started off at Bob’s house helping him get the 40 coupe ready for the new owner. Â We laid out all the parts so the buyer could see what he was getting and ask any questions. Â The car is 99% complete and will make him a super nice 40 coupe. Â I left prior to Toppers and stopped by the house to check on parts I purchased yesterday. Â I had good luck at Frantic’s yesterday and had time to install the rear shackles and master cylinder adapter. Â I am on the roll, so I feel good so far this week and only have one day left prior to the predicted heavy rains. Â The morning flew by and before I knew it I was at Toppers. Â We had a good crowd and I was the last one to arrive so I grabbed parking spot next to Dick newly painted 37 Cadillac. Â What a beautiful car after the maroon paint was applied by Scott. Â This is Dick’s daily driver which made me think what I would like to have as a daily driver while finishing Andre.
I am not into driving a new truck or car so I would only settle for a car with lots of room and very dependable in any type of weather. Â I am not afraid to drive a nice car daily but prefer one that I don’t have to worry about every minute I am in the car or away from it for a period of time. Â I know some folks prefer to sit by their car and talk to people about it but I am one who prefers to park it and go about my business. Â I think my first choice would a sedan but a 40 coupe would sure be nice also. Â The large trunk in the coupe would carry most items I purchase and the warmth of the cockpit in any type weather is perfect. Â Here are some choices to consider.
High on my Christmas wish list is a CMG 40 like this one built by Bob. Â I am in love with this style of 40 coupe.
The rear view with the LYN 089 license plate would fit me perfect. Â I like the shiny paint but the patina one would be fine also.
Bob does have Steve’s old coupe for sale in the patina shade of CMG. Â This is a nice 40 for the money.
I like the maroon coupes also. Â The cut outs peeking out from under the running boards would be a nice touch as I had them on mine in high school.
Steve likes this 41 with a modern drive train and perfect rust free patina. Â The price of $25k seems reasonable. Â Perfect “Office” driver and Toppers special.
Bob O likes sedans and this wire wheeled standard really caught his eye while he was in Bonneville.
I still like this style but I don’t think I could select a radical Deuce sedan over a nice 40 coupe. Â I would guess you could find one for about the same price.
I went to look at this daily driver a month ago and liked the overall look and versatility of the pickup. Â The body was in need of some body work on the doors but the rest of the car looked very nice to me. Â Craigslist is full of these trucks for a reasonable price.
I had planned on making this one my daily driver but got carried away with Lucy. Alan made it a beautiful car and over my budget for a driver.
I have admired this convert for many years and would love to drive it to the “Office” and park next to Dick’s and Dave’s chopped 40 converts. Â I do know of two cars that would make wonderful daily drivers but both are not for sale. They get driven very little. Â Hint, Hint!
Today’s Daily Driver….dreaming!
I am not a 39 fan but this one has the look and stance that I really like. Â A forty in this color really looks good also.
