Cold again today, but the weather lady promises it will be warm again soon. I spent yesterday working on the 48 convertible and accomplished a lot. The removal of the stainless side trim fasteners was quite a job. I had to grind off the t-nuts on about 50 fasteners. Now I can take the fenders to the stripper and have them stripped and primered. I want to have the parts ready for storage. Make a plan and stick to the plan. Old GM training.
Some of my viewers have sent me some real nice old photos and I will share them with you today. I love old pictures, black and white and young looking people. Today is Toppers, but due to the weather it will be a light turn out in roadsters. Funny how roadster owners are fuzzy about getting cold. I think one owner had an experience on New Years Day that he wished he had taken his coupe.
I will be short today as I have lots of errands to do for the wife.

Do you know this famous car? Hint SO-CAL Speed Shop owner.[singlepic=1888]
I found this book on ebay. I have been interested in flamed 40 tudors lately. Steve has influenced my thinking.[singlepic=1889]
The real McCoy from Bob in San Diego. The car is still around but is plain and not recognizable to many.[singlepic=1881]
Now for the truly “Dare to be different crowd” a chopped 40 tudor out of Roberts Rod Shop in Toledo. I have know Gary and his brother for many years.
This is my favorite this week. Brizio built Regency Red 3 window with baby hemi.
