    I just wanted to chime in and say that after a total of 3 hrs seat time, I hopped in the Shoebox and made the trip to the Symco Shakedown (about an hour from my house). No interior, no working gauges, no exterior rearview mirrors and two pillows behind me . . .I arrived in one piece and didn't kill it once! So now I'm thinking of all kinds of excuses to drive into town. What's that? We're running low on milk? More gas for the tractor? Baby needs a new pair of shoes? No problem! I'll post more detailed pics of the car and interior when we get it finished off, but here's a bit for now http://willowhomestead.blogspot.com/...o-or-bust.html

    And should you be curious about the pin-up contest . . . http://willowhomestead.blogspot.com/...winner-is.html

    That's awesome Peep!! Glad to hear she's back on the road and running well !! The cars look fantastic, absolutely fantastic!!

    Model T Speedster

    I accidentally ran across these videos. Model T Roadsters. Suprisingly inexpensive to build, there were so many Model Ts built. They look like a lot of fun, fur coats optional!

    Those do look fun.
    Fur coats? Does that mean he's a college man?

    The fur coats cost more than the cars!

    Maybe not the exact right spot for this post, but close.

    Any of you close enough to Portland, Oregon to see the fabulous display at the downtown art museum? It is unforgettable and exquisite, so if you are able to make it, please do. Unbelievably elegant 1930's cars, up close and personal. Hispanola-Suiza, Duesenberg, Pierce-Arrow, Mercedes, Jaguar, Tucker, and the list goes on. Some of these are the last of their kind! Not to be missed.

    Bourne I found this masterpiece in the Bay Area. She has been restored to her original glory with the original drivetrain/running gear and drives very well.

    I've lowered the rear some more and raised the front a tad, added Caddy Sombrero hubcaps, added a vintage Thickstun intake with a pair of vintage Carter carbs I rebuilt, tuned her up well and drive her almost every day, peak hour traffic and all. The interior is totally original, everything works - even the factory clock !!

    The reactions you get from "John Citizen" motorists on the road can be very funny indeed.

    Driving the 47 and driving my hotrod generate different kinds of reactions.

    Here's a few pix - enjoy guys !!

    HOP UP
