Big crowd today, one roadster. If it wasn’t for Don this could be a model airplane club meeting. Why don’t more people drive their cars. Almost all of us are in our 60’s and folks that is the fourth quarter of life. I pray for overtime every day. Neil drove up from the beach with another set of beautiful top irons and bows for Billy’s roadster. I think I am going to purchase a set just to hang them in my bedroom. I had to leave early to go to the dentist but the BS was still going on.
I made a lot of progress over the weekend on Andre and will show you some photos of my work. I am out of room in the garage and need to sell something to make space for the delivery body when I take it off the chassis. The wife doesn’t care what I sell as long as I gain some room. I have 4 spaces and she has one….seems fair to me. I now have many parts at the blaster and stored in her location. She is gone this week which provides me a little relief…. I must gain the space somehow. I have had a couple of suspects but no buyers. This is a bad economy, right!
Parting with our hand built cars is hard to do but there is always another project someone else has for sale. I really need to purchase a running driving car and work on Andre or the sedan project.
I am off to the dentist…so
Registration at Roaming Relics on Sunday. A real nice hammered tudor and 40 coupe were in line. I knew this was going to be good show.[singlepic=3316]
Frantic was there early in his new super 51 claret red Chevy.[singlepic=3317]
My favorite 40 folkstone gray coupe was looking good outside the Cactus Patch restaurant. I am thinking the SD would look good this color.[singlepic=3319]
George has a beauty in his red 40 coupe. New wheels put it in the Street Rod class. Where did the white walls go?[singlepic=3322]
This is what I call retirement heaven. Sunday afternoon at Pewsplace…projects and football games. I am a happy guy.[singlepic=3325]
The task for the day was to remove the doors from Andre. These are the door hinge screws that required drilling to remove. Thanks to Frank for the super drills.[singlepic=3323]
Success they all came out without damage to the holes.[singlepic=3326]
The doors are all removed and at the stripper.
