usually when a company needs more money the prices go up. I hope this isn't the case in this instance.

I don't think so, based on what he charged me for the pans:)

Rain, Rain, Go Away...:(


It looks like this weekend will be a wash out as far as playing with Flatheads goes, according to the weather service:mad:; we're getting rain off and on all weekend... I'm sure I'll find something Flathead related to mess with...:eek::cool:

We have been inundated with rain here in the Tampa Bay Area and it's not going to subside any time soon according to the weather service... Think maybe I should start building an Ark... :eek::(

The ’51 F-1 is parked on the “high ground” in the back yard and the normal water level at the Cyprus Head (aka) swamp, is just at the perimeter of the trees… :eek:

The sound emanating from the swamp, a cacophony provided by the rejoicing Frogs… is almost deafening...:eek:

Vic,
Stay safe and dry. I hope you two don't have to seek higher ground. Are the trees stable? I remember the pics you posted the last time you had a lot of rain. It was not good at all.

Hi Chuck, Thanks for your concern, we're ok but surrounded by water:(, looks like we've got our own little island. All the trees are still upright however, I had a surprise this morning when I took the trash out... the propane tank (that had not been filled) was floated up out of the ground...:eek: Looks like a U-Boat... Just another fun day building the house... one step forward, three steeps backward...:(:(

I tried to shoot some video of a short drive in the LZ today and I posted it on YouTube... I'm still not sure exactly how to post things :o but, if you'd like to take a look, go to Youtube.com and type in Cigar City Flatheads. I've posted two videos (one is for business)... Hope you enjoy the Zephyr ride...:eek::cool:

Ok, if you go to YouTube, type in: 1939 Lincoln Zephyr Convertible Club Coupe and that should take you to the thumbnail so you can click on it and watch...;) It's much easier to work on the Zephyr than to mess with computers...:(

WOW... The sun is out and it’s not raining...:D what a treat! I was so happy to see the sun that I brought some cars out and did a video of the '39 CS, I'm uploading it to YouTube right now... Sure glad to see the sun again:eek::D. Now maybe we’ll be able to get some work done on the ’51 F-1 transmission swap this weekend.:cool:

I watched your video of the 39. It's kool to be like a passenger in it & hear it go through the gears. I like the looks of that car. I'm curious though about the video. The image kept bending, sort of like watching a reflection in a pool. You've got some vehicles that I wouldn't kick out of my garage Vic.

Woodie1, thanks for the complements, I appreciate it. I also noticed the distortion in the video:eek:, I think that it is a result of the format conversion that YouTube does when it gets uploaded. I shot both the '39 LZ & '39 CS videos on a professional broadcast camera and everything is fine on playback so the distortion has got to be caused by the conversion...:confused:

Here's a link (I hope:eek:) to the '39 Zephyr video...:cool:

Ken, I know, it looks like U-271 surfaced in my yard...:eek::eek::eek:

You could just paint it yellow and hang a picture of the Beatles on it.

It breaks my heart to see that pretty `51 pickup sitting out in the weather!

Bud, it's a Ford truck, most likely it spent most of its life sitting out in the weather...:( At the moment I've got all the convertibles in the garage...:D I hope to get started on the transmission swap in the '51 F-1 this weekend; we'll be installing a '49 Merc with Over Drive...:cool:

I'd rather go on a Magical Mystery Tour with Sgt. Pepper down Abby Road...;):cool:

I think I'd rather go down Abby Road with Lovely Rita The Meter Maid. It's funny I was never a big Beatles fan but their songs do stick.
