Just a few Picture's

Post by Brownie on February 10th 2012, 2:00 am

I bought this car 10 yrs ago.
It kinda looked like this..

Still has the flathead in it. Didn't know much about them. So out it went.



The car being torn down.



Frame all mocked up!
65 corvair Front end 8" Ford rear 350/350



Ready for the body!
This is the part I got burned out at.....The frame looked so nice.
That when I put the body back on I couldn't see any progress...like I went backwards!
So... Life happened Cindy and I Had a little girl and it was like this for a while.


Got a Job offer in Florida!
So I had get it to a point to load on a trailer.



While I have been down here it has been the green also flat black with porta walls and now it lools like this.





I still have a lot to do there never done... But they are always FUN!

I felt cold just looking at that last picture. The palm trees brings back some memories.
Cool rod too. I see it was trimmed out in yellow before. Was you thinking of shooting it yellow? I like the color on it now. Twisted Evil

Thanks Chriss.
( Was you thinking of shooting it yellow? I like the color on it now. )

Ya.. At the time I was. My Dad ended up painting his 39 chevy yellow so that plan changed.
But the good thing was that a friend of mine had that color pick out for his car. Bought a gallon and didn't like it..... So the first gallon was free!

Sound like all of us may want to tackle a long haul to FL. I'd be game this year. Drive down together and hang out for a day on the beach, matbe time it to show up when a car show was going on so we could take that in and then split up and go do the stuff on our own like visiting family or whatever. If some were ready to head north at the same time then some of us could come back together. I lived in FL for a short time. I never made it to the Keys. I'd like to go as far south as I could go.

Sounds good to me! My Son and I were just talking about that last night. Only he is wanting to take US25 all the way down, which I believe runs into 17. But that would take a week just travelling US25 alone. But he thought it would be cool to take and just travel at slow speeds. Knowing us though, we would stop and check out the old rides and never get to Florida. Laughing

Just in case you missed it in the other thread. I have a small one room cottage on my property, not much but it has a bed, a couch, a small fridge, a microwave, and a T.V. The bathroom is detached, which is kind of a drag for those late night potty breaks, Shocked and we do live down a dirt road. I also have room for a few tents, or even an R.V. or two. (sorry no hookups lol! ) If ya need a place to stay for a nite or two, just let me know. Just watch out for the Water Buffalo, they can get feisty. affraid
