It is time for another; unlike wives you can have two! Two honeymoons is better then one.

Been down that ménage a trois road before and at the size of my wallet now, one will do.

2004 in a barn in West Virginia. Sat in my garage for 6 years before I even tried starting it. It was found for me by my 88 yr old Uncle. He kept asking me how I was doing and it was always the same answer. Finally I took a couple of days and free'd up the engine, got it started, and it runs like a champ. I am so attached to that car it is going to Florida with me as soon as possible. Oh BTW it is a 1929 std roadster. I have nicknamed it "Survior"

Huckster 1951 (chassis was part of a 1929 CCPU in those days). Got pieces of the PU from a cousin which I further ruined in 1951-cut off top of cab, took off fenders, etc. Rebuilt into the huckster in 2009. 1929 STD Coupe purchased in 2010.
