Default Project getting close to the finish line

Have not had much to report lately, health issues have slowed me down some. Doing better now and the 36 is coming along nicely after its 8 year paint and interior make over. Only had two minor scratches today, my paint guy is not happy! lol..

Tom that is a great looking coupe, it is a great felling when things get fired up and on the road again.

Lets see what's under that shiny blue hood, I see lots of bling

We did the motor a few years ago, 3/4 race cam, Johnson lifters, merc crank and hexagon tool intake. She runs fine, nice and lopey but still has good take off. Mark Kirby helped with some parts many years ago, RIP....

exactly...a perfect example of why you keep a Flathead under the hood and not one of those all too common ugly orange 350 things.

Looks so nice! It's going to get scratches, something I've come to grips with. It'll get dusty, things will rust. Entropy. Looks really nice! Have fun!
