Sometime after the first of the year I am most likely doing a Lentville Huckster conversion on my 29 CCPU. I'll need the cowl and windshield frame, I think, but will be parting out the rest of the cab sheet metal and the bed.
The door skins are good, but the bottoms and frames need some help. back and roof look pretty good as well.

PM sent. curious as to how many are out there. Ive heard the 30/31 style is more popular due to it being rounder and less model T looking boxy shape. But for me i like the older look.

It started to rain heavily Thursday afternoon - continued all day Friday and until well into the night. Rivers and creeks were way up and some homes were flooded. Thank goodness for a very nice Wednesday and a decent Thursday morning at the show and that the damage to homes and property wasn't worse.

We left a day early (Saturday) because we theorized the show field would be a mess and we're afraid the campground would be flooded and wouldn't get out with the trailer. I heard some roads were closed. Our Hershey holiday was over after Thursday, bummer.

Great meeting you Pilot Dave. I also met Midwest Tin. I'm home and I haven't seen the boat dock yet (under water) and it's still raining.

Got home Saturday evening at 8:00, had a great time in spite of the rain. Just fell into a lot of T Speed equipment, sales were so so but I didn't have any quality parts. Only 360 days till Hershey 2014! Bob
