  1. That is a neat car. Like most projects it is probably on the old 20-30 year schedule. I have contacted guys that have bought my cars to see how things were going. One of them I was absolutely shocked at the amount of time and money that went in to it (which was why I sold).
  2. Here is one that is free if you go get it soon. Steel on Porcelain frame?
  3. Here is another prefab metal one that was moved.
  4. The low windshield is a great feature on these Nash bodies and I have always liked the convertible victoria body style. My general rules for picking colors: 1. Canvas should be black or tan with a preference for black. Colored tops are out (my dad is the master of this one). 2. Mono tone body & fenders to make the whole look synergistic. If you feel obligated to two tone, goes with darker color on the fenders. NO Metallic. I don't care about fish scales I know they used them but rarely and they are incredibly fine. 3. Dark colors on the wheels if painted. Consider body color. The wheels should be darker than the fenders. 4. Consider period colors in general. Colors go through fads and picking the lastest fad (think red in the 80s) and you date the car to when it was restored. If you know the original colors and you can stomach them consider it. I'm a bit of a hypocrite because I have a car that was factory red (including the chassis) with period documentation talking about it. I could not bring myself to paint the car red. I have mixed emotions about painting raised body mouldings different than the body. Often pin striping does a better job. The more different colors you use the greater chance the body is viewed in disjointed pieces instead of a holistic or harmonious single piece.
  5. You missed a great one here:
  6. I guess the other issue is your local building inspector and zone issues. One of the reason period buildings looks so good is they don't have the same building code rules applied that a modern structure would have. Biggest offender is 2nd floor windows have to be large enough for a 250lb fireman with full equipment to walk through.
  7. Frank, I admire your focus and dedication to documenting the process. I find it very educational.
  8. If we are talking about a move, then the soil issue is moot. You would be surprised how big a house can be and still dissembled and moved. A gas station such was what you are showing is no big deal at all. My advice would be to pick the perfect one for your use, spend a bit more money and then have it professionally disassembled and moved. You can google up companies in your part of the country that do that work.
  9. An especially attractive Cab C on a sunny spring day.
  10. Looks better with the blackwalls doesn't it?
  11. Dave, in your situation with both the K code and the 63 Vette the automatic is actually pretty rare with both of them. There are a small percentage of buyers that prefer or need the auto so in this case it worked to your advantage. For the great majority of cars the percentages are reversed.
  12. Looking forward to some pictures.
  13. Yes, he has two. The unrestored/wrecked one was for sale, although I don't know if it is any longer.
  14. Thanks for the education Frank. I'm sure there are a few guys here who knew that about the worm but I was not one of them.
