Still no real playtime. Rearranged things at that building, took a 10 minute ride, and put it in the carbag for the winter. But now this tractor will have to spend the winter outside under a tarp. View attachment 321579 View attachment 321582

No its been single exhaust for all these years and I'm fine with that! Took the Ford out one last time in October before tearing it apart to visit friend with 51 Victoria. found this 51 Crestliner and Model A on the way home!

How could I forget about this amazing Imperial? Could you please post some more pictures of it? It's the epitome of class!

Amazing job on the Ford! And in such a short time. Someone was busy. What was the deal with the roof? Welded on visor? That colour suits it perfectly!

Edit - just looked back, realized they're two different cars. Was that the original colour?

As my work is considered vital to keep the nation alive, at this point I have no idea when I will have any playtime. And IMHO all road trips should be postponed for a few months.

In lieu of car shows or large gatherings I see that a lot of car shows this year are/will be cancelled or postponed indefinitely. However, I think we might see a resurgence of car cruises or car parades (without people crowded together) thru neighborhood streets. I think it's already being done for special needs birthdays, anniversaries, etc...that is, safely viewing the line of cars passing by from your porch, front window, etc...Maybe I'm dreaming...But, I think we could still share and enjoy our old iron from a distance this year.
