Great photos, Mike.
I find it strange that Ford went back and forth several times on the position of the inside door handle over the years.

I especially like the blackwalls. Way too many early Fords have whitewalls that were seldom seen when they were new.

YES!!...Good god man...where have been . We saw this beautiul car many times on the OLD FORDBARN and actually a few times here on your barn. Mike probably knows how much I/we love seeing that mostly all original survivor '35 Cabriolet and I even once had the unthinkable audacity to suggest that he consider puting me first in line on the long list of wannabees who would give a left body part to purchase that baby when he gets ready to sell (yea, right, just like I would sell one of my children ). Now unfortunately for me, I missed seeing his cars in person in either '09/'10 when I had an invite to stop at Mike's place after what was once known as THE FORDBARN GATHERING in Florida... and is now called the Barner's Bash.
Mike, here is my formal request for another invite to see those cars...on hopefully a future trip down to your area for Amelia Island/Bikers Week (but don't own a bike )/Vic's next Barner's Bash. Now if I do get another invite...I can assure you it will be planned as an early stop on the way down and not the end of the trip when I'm way over on the west coast of Florida and have probably consumed massive amounts of Mr Moose's BBQ'D ribs and several cases of his cold 'Schlitzers'

Thanks Mike...I kinda knew already that you would say "come on down" ... again.... I was really hoping to get to Amelia Island this March but got a late start from home and missed that window of time to attend that show. After arriving too late on a Saturday afternoon to visit Carpenter or Bradley, I spent the night in Charlotte to visit KiwinUS Tony on Sunday and then made an impromptu route change over to I75 to Ocala with some extra days to spend in that area or possibly do an early visit with GM and Skip in Punta Gorda and on to Fort Meyer's before the Barner's bash kick off back in Ocala. Anyway, I'm hoping to get back there in 2013.
