Re: What does a 35-40 frame weigh?

I'll tell you they are pretty darned heavy when your walking backwards helping a fellow with one and you trip on a rock and the rear cross member comes down on your legs !

Re: WWII era

If you had heard the engine and several trips to the hanger with the "51" while up here once, you certainly would question your sanity about going up for a ride even if they gave you the $2200 bucks...

Re: WWII era

Sidevalve, beautiful aren't they ? They belong to the Collins foundation from Mass. I believe and fly into Laconia, N.H. every so many years. Ocasionally some one has $300 or so and gets a ride...

Re: Walt Duponts shop

So very happy for you and your wife John. Much better outcome than my wife who passed on in 1998 with the same issue. Most folks with that dreaded sickness are not so lucky. Glad she escaped the...

Re: 1935 Floor Mats

More than likely, Dennis C. is producing the mats that most others are selling.
I recently bought a new mat for the forty from Jo's in Uxbridge and it is from Dennis. I guess the V8 club asked him...

Re: Where to start ?

Just regular "Junk" gas with no additives as long as I've owned it. I have a newly rebuilt "Bubbas" dist. in the trunk but did not want to go to the bother of changing it yet if not needed. Seemed to...

Where to start ?

Went to a show a short ways from home on Thursday evening, (about four or five miles) and while on the way back home developed a skip from time to time. Drove about three or four miles this AM and it...

Re: 37 pickup horns

Lawson, didn't the 36 deluxe have a chrome radiator shell and maybe a sliding rear window as well as a few other treats ? Just a curious old guy !

Great Race

Re: Progress pics - 36 1/2 ton pickup

Scott, I'm curious, did you have to remove the head board to slide the old boards out ? I did on mine and the ones I took out were maple, and I believe 3/4 " thick. I could have cheated and only put...

Re: Gas Tank Assembly at the Rouge 1937

Would those tanks be possibly for pickups to stand behind the seat ? As kids we used to break thermometers open to get the contents to rub on coins to make them shiny. In later years, my partner...

Re: My brother and I picked up a couple 1934 Ford pickups parked in 1956 over the wee

Surprised Bob, "the Duck" or Dennis has not started tooling up for those years of rear fenders. Should be a snap compared to other shapes that get pressed. Seems like a few $$ could be made ?

Re: My brother and I picked up a couple 1934 Ford pickups parked in 1956 over the wee
