        Gordon, you really do some nice work. I was studying the firewall details; the distributor recess and the jamb lines in particular. Very clean and well done! Thanks for posting! (I'm sure you have more Hint, hint)

          I came across these photos of "Runamucka" on a site dedicated to the Curtiss P-40 Kittihawk and Warhawk. Neat hotrod with a Jag V-12 built to honor the Flying Tigers. Here are some videos of it too.

              Here is a car that was built about 50 years ago. Very old school, z'd frame, channeled, really cool. He built it as soon as he got out of the military & has had it since. Several years ago the son of a friend of his got it out of the barn & restored it for him. Now he's like a kid again. Man it gets dark early now.

                Here is an acquaintance of mine. His name is Joe Sulpy, a famed pin striper/air brusher/custom car guy. He built this coffin trailer as an advertisement to bring to shows. Really cool. Has a grill built in & plans to add a cooler too.

                Joe with my son Tim checking it out. Tim took lessons from Joe for awhile.

                    At the end of every year our local cruise night holds a show in conjunction with community day. Here are some pics. Since it's mostly a rodder show I posted them here.
                    My son & I waiting for a meet up. The truck is his daily.

                        Beautiful Studabaker with a full Corvette drivetrain. If you look closely behind the front wheel & on the hood you can just see ghost flames.

                          Of course you also have to cover the bed floor with old road signs screwed down.

                              I should note that this is an original stagecoach built in the 1800s. Really cool looking at this & how it was built.

                              Cool T-bird. I learned that you put it in park & the steering column slides over out of the way to get in/out.
