Re: 2 door phaeton project, how much is it worth

Re: 1930 Deluxe Roadster For Sale

Re: Engine Rebuilder on ebay

It's still moving along, and I need my butt kicked for not having updated the thread in so long. Once I get a little bit of tax paperwork out of the way this week I'll get busy with a proper update.
