Wednesday’s Words

Cloudy and cool today so the paint will wait until tomorrow. I have company coming so maybe I can sneak some garage time during the day when they are gone with the wife. The house painter is coming tomorrow so I will have a good excuse for staying home. Painting requires total concentration to do a decent job, no interruptions, no phone calls just thinking before you pull the trigger. I usually put on one too many coats and cause runs which creates more work for me. I told myself this time no runs. I learned to paint from a long time friend of mine, Larry in Detroit. He even flew to my house in New Hampshire to help me sand, block and primer my first hiboy roadster. I can recall the process to this day. I still have the same gun, a Binks model 7, which works great even today. Maybe I should try priming my roadster. I pulled it out yesterday and wiped down the body and suspension. A car sure gets dirty just sitting in your garage. Andre is jealous so I cleaned her up this morning. This is my life and I love it.

Stay Tooned!


The steering wheel was on the wrong side for the US but this little hiboy was really nice.

Head on view shows low stance with 5 inch dropped axle. I saw several 5 inch axles on cars at the show. Fred must be doing O.K. with his axle and brake business. Super nice guy and long time friend.

Roy built this one before the current rage. The stance is everything on this RPU. I recall seeing this at the SEMA show years ago. The car has the Cop Shop look.

Lynn was parked in the back lot with me and lots of other nice cars. The Regency Red tudor used to belong to Narod and Ron in the 80’s.

You are probably tired of seeing “Sunshine” but she still looks good to me.

Forty Ford pickups are the current 40 of choice for many people. Jim built this CMG stunning example and drove it up from San Diego. He also has a nice Deuce hiboy roadster. Maybe that is the perfect pair.

I didn’t catch the owners name but this black 40 sedan was a high end build with a gorgeous interior and all the trimmings… add steel wheels and park it in my garage.

This fellow left early so I did not get to talk to him about his delivery. The 36 SD is a nice car to drive and is popular with many car collectors. I don’t recall seeing this one before but it had nice shiny paint and red wheels. Is there anything else for a delivery?

The rear shows off the very expensive rear bumper which provides easy access into the rear storage area.

One of the nicest 34 Phaetons around, this recently finished 4 door had a mile deep paint job and a beautiful maroon interior by Ron. I have seen more 34 Phaetons in the last month than I have seen in the last 5 years. I want to see more.

Today’s Track Roadster…dreaming!

I know I have a lot of favorites, but this Moal built track roadster is by far one of his best creations. The color scheme, stance, profile and overall look is what a Track roadster should look like. Jeff also owns the Thelan built Woody parked next to his roadster.

  1. Thanks for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbor were just preparing to do a little research on this. We got a grab a book from our local library but I think I learned more from this post. I am very glad to see such magnificent information being shared freely out there.

  2. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
