Re: Can this be worth the price?

I figured it was the wrong price but wanted to check. It is always interesting to find treasures that you have put away and now have no idea where you got them. This next year will be a year of...

Can this be worth the price?

I'm cleaning out my "stuff" in preparation for moving and came across a drill bit with a price tag that makes me wonder. I know I didn't buy this bit as my budget is more on the HF level.

Re: Restoration in India

Mike, you can scroll down and in the right bottom there are page numbers from 1 to 5, I think. Each page represents progress and you can see the finished car in the last page.

Re: World's Fair in Dallas

I know this is a stretch and opening a very old post but thought I would give it a try. I have a 36 Fordor Deluxe that has been in the family for about 50 years. It came with an original 1936 Texas...

Is this a 36 bumper w/guards?

A friend found this bumper and guards and is wondering what it is for. To me looking only at the picture I think it could be for a 36 but I don't know about the guards. What do you think?

Re: reproduction 1931 two door sedan fenders

Re: Early 30 Pickup questions

Re: Early 30 Pickup questions
