I'll play,I am a 1932 Ford nut and have had several in the past.

This is my old Deuce sedan that I owned for years,sold it and we were separated for almost 20 years and bought it back
about 5 years ago.

I recently did some trading on my red deuce sedan.

And parked this 4 door hi-boy sedan in it's place.

That's true.

It's funny....now that I have three antique cars, I find that I enjoy them less than when I had just one. It's almost like having to choose is a problem.

Don,I'm down to two but I have always wanted a '50 Ford coupe and I am negotiation on one now,if it doesn't pan out I think I will pull the '65 Ford truck out of the barn and get it running again,the 302 will need a rebuild and the 4 speed transmission will probably give way to a C-4.

The flames were painted in 1985 and the paint is pretty bad now,when I paint it I wall shoot it with Kirker S.G. black like my old '32 pickup.

The truck is going to need some patch work here & there but I bought the truck in '73 and I feel like it's a member of the family.

Well guys,I am a glutton for punishment,I bought that 1950 Ford Club coupe,it's a decent car but it's going to need some patch panels,hopefully not as many as the wagon.

First I have to wake it up from being idle for the past 3 years,so I had a ramp truck pick it up and haul it home.

No James,it's not, The car has a 351 Cleveland, C-4 transmission, 8" Maverick rear with drum brakes, Disc on the front and belonged to a friend who had a stroke 3 years ago and has sat ever since.

I am in the process of vatting the gas tank and tuning the car up, I haven't decided if I will rebuild the carburetor or replace it and I need to go through the brakes.

My main objective is to get the car running and replace the wheels & tires and just drive it for now, The rocker panels and the passenger door needs patching, who knows what I will find once I get started but all that will have to wait until next winter.
