Old vehicles represent a part of our history that can't be replaced. It doesn't matter if you restore, rebuild, refurbish, customize or just set them aside for the future. It is all part of sharing history, knowledge and effort with others.
Here are the web sites for most of my cars:
This is a 32 Ford Board track racer. I restored the wood on the 71 Morris
This 40 Merc may someday be a woodie. It still has a flathead. The B pillar and the door skins are the worst part.
The will be the car I use to learn about building woodies. I want a station wagon body that looks like the one on a Model A that uses the cowl rather than the typical T depot hack that starts at the fire wall.
This is how the above Model T coupe looks now. I am working on the tailgate and the roof. I go the roof done and now have moved the body to a Model A.
I do have a nice 24 Model T coupe that is a good runner. Nancy and I went to the 100 year Model T anniversary in Indiana.
This poor soul is a mid 40's chevy 4 door and almost beyond hope. It was only a couple hundred and heading for the crusher. The hood is there but since it was unbolted I have it sitting on the side. Maybe I will find a coupe that needs the parts. I bought it to have the 216 parts available and right away needed the spare carb laying in the trunk. I found some fender guards and parking lights in the trunk as well they are now on my 47 Fordor.
This 47 is a nice driver. The steering is a challenge. It needs to be adjusted to take out the half turn of slack in the wheel.
I've got a bunch of VW's: 2 ovals, a 73 vert;, and a 59 sand rail. Ovals and Splits are getting hard to find and need to be saved. the unibody style construction makes them very rust prone but the pans are available. How about a VW woodie wagon? Anyone have an example?
I am about done with my VW collecting. Maybe a van and a Karman Gia.
This is the remaining Iron I have around. I recently sold the 53 chevy PU. It is a nice runner. the 46 chevy Pick Up was advertised as a nice runner but it needs a lot of work. The 79 MGB is a good runner but is too low to the ground for these gravel roads. The 59 Chevy Longbed needs a Valve Job and maybe more. the 42 Chevy PU was to be a parts car for the 46 but It may be in better condition.
