Default Great Forum....and my 1928 Coupe

This Forum Rules....a lot of great info and input....and non of the attitude like some of the other Forums!

Here are a few pictures of my latest purchase! Runs great, no rust, older restoration, but still looks good. I am wet sanding some of the runs and funky spots in the paint and then will do a cut and polish. Other then that it is ready to go. Starts right up, runs, shifts, and stops!

I was looking for a Coupe to hot rod but this one is too cool as it sits, so it will stay as is.

Hey Mel,

Welcome Aboard ! Sweet looking Coupe you have there !

Is it a "steel-back" or "leather-back" (referring to the roof section) ?

Welcome and we thank you for joining and keeping the car intact.

Mel, there are lots and lots of hot rod coupe projects out there that have been started and abandoned due to a variety of reasons (in fact, there are two on Craigslist in the Portland area right now). Your new find is a beauty and I agree that it is just too nice to rod, but if you're still looking for that kind of thing I would encourage you to find one that has already been started. You'll probably get it cheaper and may even save yourself some work.

Or inherit a nightmare!!! I have built a few rods and have started from scratch as well as starting with a build in progress....pros and cons in both! Also done a few restorations....its really all about how the car "talks" to you.....this one will stay as is...just couldn't pass up the deal...
