Very Cool! Hot Roddy in the right way. Like some one in the '50 would have built Rod.

Assembly of body, fenders, hood etc., can be a bitch, ( the scratch dig thing ) I try to do all myself but find with things like this an extra set or two of hands will eliminate these assy issues.

Damn near perfect, Chris. I love the wide whites on it. For some reason, its a car you can't stop looking at. Some cars are like that....just draws you in....

Thanks everyone. Here is the car that has been on my mind for years. This was in 1953

Last night I went for a stroll in the ol buggy. The weather was perfect and I needed to get out. Still a couple things that are not "right" that I need to address, but I am loving the "new" car!!

I took the top off of it over this past weekend to do a good cleaning after a 200 mile run in rainy weather! This is the first time I have seen it with fenders but no top. I dig it this way too!

Hey Chris,
That is a beautiful car and just love the color. What's the matter with color...you got something against GRAY !
Looks just like my '30 roadster with Grey (only purdier) , the only color that I've ever known on my cars. Same reason as you state now...but forever ! Any want to call it out as 'hotrod', go ahead, no offense not having $, IMO

The grill and front fenders are the most beautiful elements of the 34' ford. They certainly do work better as a team.

HAHA no...but I would like to paint it someday.

I put the top on it and also the side curtains yesterday. It's ready for the chilly fall weather!

What a great looking car - great stance, good colors, a perfect period look IMHO. Continue to keep us all posted (and jealous!) ...
