Very cool Richard! Funny, I was born in 1981 Another note, my big goal (and this is no joke) is to get the roadster going and take it on your run. Every year I look at the pics from that event and am green with envy

Our 34 5 window driven by Ron Tilley was the track champion at Silver Spring Speedway in Mechanicsburg PA in 1957 & 1958. Also the car that won the most races in one season ever at that track, 11.

Now that all the 34 guys are looking at this thread, I have to ask, who has interior window moldings for my 3W doors? I'd buy one, two or all three. I already have the rear window one. I'm not rich by any means, but would pay a fair price... Thanks,Tim

I have a 34 3 window that was built into a stock car in the late 50s,last run in 64. I've owned it since 64 and just pulled it out of the woods about a month ago. Plans are to restore it to as raced condition.

I live in Camrose, Alberta. I drive a restored 34 Cabriolet and also have an unrestored 34 Tudor, 34 5 window and over the winter bought an unrestored 34 3 window I'd been chasing for well over twenty years. Someday I'll take the time to learn to post a picture. Ron Pilger

I have a 34 5w that my dad bought in the late 50s to make into a hot rod. He started working on it when he retired then I bought it. It still need a lot of work. I love the sound of the flathead. He could not get it to start reliably but I did when I but in smaller power values in the carbs and made the gasket surfaces flat.

Here is mine...the first pic is how I found her...just swaped out the worn 1950 flathead for a re-built 1950 flattie...trying to finish this one up nice as time and cash allows! Its going to be an early styled hot rod....I would love to own a stock Model 40 but thats only if I hit the lotto!! hahaha







I would like to paint it Washington Blue next year and put the grill shell and radiator back to stock position...one day at a time..lol
