My 1931 Woody was a big bed pickup. It was painted pink from top to bottom, inside out and had one functioning brake. The before picture was after 40 years of ownership.
WARNING *** The after photo is not recommended for the pure of heart.

Before/after pictures sure make it look easy. I also find it interesting how the start and completion (or near completion) pictures vary in the amount of time between them. I am certainly hoping for a short time.

Here's my before. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a2IjBUESAEQ I say moving pictures still count as pictures

Don't think I have ever seen a Sport Coupe with the oval windows. Nice car.

Those are Business Coupes, 54-A. Only made in 1929 with the oval windows, and only about 37,000 manufactured.

It's amazing what some of you guys have brought back to life.

Here's my first car in 1962 and later in 2011.

Are you sure the visor isn't in the barn? It must be in there somewhere!

Great car, by the way. My second favorite body style, and I love that patina. Keep the trunk!
