It's not an old car....but it used to be....sort of.

Serious relaxing tinkering in the garage Sunday afternoon. This trailer was built in 1950 out of parts from a 1937 Ford. Today I made one good trailer jack out of two junk ones, fixed the lights and rigged up two poles to aid in visibility when backing. I love turning wrenches on my cars but sometimes just some light tinkering like this is just what the doctor ordered

It does Danny.

The pair that were on it were really rusty and pretty much gone around the air valve stem so I made a patch to hold them over until I found some artillery wheels in good shape.

I found a very nice pair at the last swap meet I went to. I discovered, as I was looking for them that they're often referred to as "Wide-Five" wheels because of the huge bolt pattern.
