Re: First flathead in 40+ years

That's quite the score; congrats!

The only real downside to the 3w are the rear blind spots.
That can be remedied, to a degree, with TWO good mirrors.

Re: Some Project Updates

That Buick fits like it was made for it! Ought to be a terrific road
car w/ your running gear combo.
Be kind w/ those skinny rear tires!

Re: Some Project Updates

Ditto here!
You will be amazed at the torque of that Buick, and its ability
to lug back up from low rpm. (Unlike a sbc)

Re: 1936 ford radiator finish.

I love it! Even has a beehive. What are the air cleaners from?
(Look like two different oem types)

What a great history you have w/ your '36! Have had mine for
a while too.

Re: Me And The Merc

Have really enjoyed your "landscape" pics and videos, Ralph.
They bring back the best memories of my uncle's farm in southern
Alberta, back in the '50s and early '60s.

Re: 36 wearing vineyard green?

I would be interested as well. It's one of those colors that changes, significantly, with
different types of light and shade.

Re: Merc In Autumn

"Enhanced" colors aside, I like your composition, Ralph. Nice, natural "frame", utilizing
the over-hanging trees, and the "tracks" leading to your car.

Well done!

Re: The (not so long) Long Long Trailer

They featured beautiful woodwork back then, but few survived the ravages of time. Hence
the high prices they command these days. 25 years ago, you couldn't give them away!

Re: Rare '40 convertible restoration project

I had my frame sandblasted, w/ the body on, back in the late 70s. They did a very
thorough job. Even the center of the X member was stripped bare. (A fact I did not
discover until later!)

Re: Before and After Photos

Very nice cars and COE, guys! Hats Off for your DIY skills.
(It always amazes me at the loads the old trucks were subjected to; stopping distances had to be great!).
