Default Finally got her out of the shed

Its been two years since I got the 32 out for a test run. Got the brakes working pretty good. They still a bit soft. Need to be a bit harder. Did take the wife a short ride. Maybe tomorrow a little ride to check her out. About 20 miles or so. This winter might rebuild the steering box. Does steer easy but out 1 inch play.

Just another Junker to clog up the highway Dad use to say. Park it out back so the neighbors won't call the cops. Every junkman around here will be knocking at the door.

If you get tired of it, loan it to me. I'll maintain it and adjust the brakes and steering box for free!

Very nice '32. My grandfather had a 1932 five window. Sold it around 1991 to a Ford dealer near Richmond Virginia. I wish I had the car.

Great to see you now have the 32 running properly, I fitted a very soft Ferodo brake linings to the front brakes which are are just about good as the original asbestos brake linings. and fitted a 15 to 1 - 1934 ford V8 worm and wheel too replace the original 13 to 1 worm and wheel in the steering box on our 32 which improved the steering.

Only an inch of play? There's not even any sport in that......

Cecil I hope to bring the rat infested 32 if I get it done. If I don't get it done the 40. Miss seeing you and hearing you. Looks like a hot summer.
