Re: 1937/38 ford bumpers

My 1937 front bumper is 61 5/8" across the front and with about a 5 1/2" bow. The bow is a difficult to measure without taking it off the brackets, which I didn't do.

Re: Great Race Bishop June 2019

Saw the Blues Brothers car two years ago when the Race went through Indiana. They are on a mission from God. At least that was their claim. What a fun evening seeing all the cars.

Re: Craig's List '33 cpe bought

Great looking project. It is kinda hard to practice your negotiating skills when there is a line of 10 prospective buyers behind you. Enjoy your new project.

Re: flathead engine cradle

Thanks, I learned something today and if I ever see a Clayborne engine stand at a swap meet I will know what I am looking at and will treat it with respect. Time to go get the pizza.
