Default Yes, they are still out there!!!

After three years of waiting I drug this home in a snow storm, both ways. 1934 Cabriolet.
Picking up Car, setting/parked sense 1982, all tires flat, aired up (still holding air after two days ) and released parking brake, next out of gear and it rolled.

Next push out in snow and winch into trailer, 4X4 needed to back down hills and to location.

Pulled car in trailer and tied down for trip!!

Another long trip, snow, clear road, snow squall, clear, snow, clear, arrive home, unload today

Start to work on clean up, plugs out, add MMO, clean interior, etc., will check everything, Don to inspect distributor, clean out carb, gas???

Bruce, WOW that is amazing. Nothing that sweet ever shows up here in Illinois. I'm jealous! You have a very nice car there.

Nice looking car. I would bet you would have gone thorough a blizzard to get it if you had to.

Last owner purchased(father) in 1960 and passed away, one son inherited and drove until 82 or so, it was parked in a barn on property and then barn torn down, moved to garage, stored there until I looked at several years ago. Next son inherited from brother's estate and that is all I know.

Now that's a beautiful find!! I love seeing these old Fords being found and put back on the road. No restoration needed on that one. Get it mechanically sound, cleaned up cosmetically and drive it!!

Going through a car like that, that's new to you, is like being on a treasure hunt. When I was a kid, I always liked going through the cars when they first arrived at the local junk yard. Usually found something worth keeping.

A real beauty. Well, your life has peaked now. You've landed the big fish. Kind of sad. Maybe you would consider throwing it back?
